Full description
Get an insight into Colombia's troubled past on a private guided tour of the formerly dangerous district of Comuna 13 in Medellín.   Discover a replica of an old village at Pueblito Paisa on Nutibara Hill, and get stunning views over the rooftops from one of the city's few conserved ecosystems. Make your way to Comuna 13 to learn how the most notorious neighborhood in the country has reinvented itself. See stunning examples of street art and graffiti that puts the political and socio-economic story of the area into context. Once the center of the gang wars and guerilla activity, the area has been transformed by the local community with the help of government projects such as a giant escalator that runs up the hill. Visit other sustainable city projects such as the Zen-inspired Barefoot Park, the charismatic Park of Desires, and the iconic sculptures by Fernando Botero on Botero Plaza.

    The tour is amazing, my partner and I had toured the city with an amazing guide. It is a great way to start your visit to Medellin, the guide will give you advise on how to navigate the city as well as show you some of the amazing sites the city has to offer. I highly recommend this tour, you will not regret it!

    Wir hatten nur 1 Tag in Medellin und entschieden uns deshalb eine private Tour zu buchen. Unsere Ansprechperson konnte die Tour kurzfristig organisieren und auf unseren knappen Zeitplan abstimmen. Die Abholung erfolgte pünktlich im Hotel. Während der Tour wurden uns alle Höhepunkte der Stadt sowie die Comuna 13 gezeigt. Der Guide sprach perfekt Englisch und konnte all unsere Fragen beantworten. Anschließend wurden wir gegen einen kleinen Aufpreis direkt zum Flughafen gebracht. Der Tag verlief trotz des dichten Programms und unseres Abflugs völlig stressfrei für uns.
