Full description
Start your day with convenient hotel pickup. Meet your guide and begin your tour to experience Medellín like a local. First, you'll be introduced to the graffiti and their meanings on the Poblado neighborhood's walls, which you might have walked by and never noticed. From there, you'll be driven to the downtown area of the city to experience a vibrant part of town. There, see the street art that transforms the gray walls into colorful spaces with stories, and start to learn about some of Medellín's evolving history and troubled past. After downtown, head toward a parking lot close to the Comuna 13 district to park the car before your private group takes the famous cable car up the hills. Make sure to take in the fabulous panoramic views of the city on the way up as your guide tells you more about the surrounding area and its history. At Comuna 13, the real fun begins. Your enthusiastic guide will explain all the positive changes made to transform what was once one of the most dangerous communities in South America into a symbol of the new Medellín. Enjoy time to take in all the amazing street graffiti and ride the electric outdoor escalators to the top observation deck, which offers incredible views. Listen to insights about Medellín, interesting stories from the guides, meet the locals, and try a famous local popsicle before returning to your hotel.

    What an utterly amazing tour! The private tour with Epic Tours Medellín is the way to go! Today’s tour was of Comuna 13. Manny was my guide and took me through the city of Medellín explained the history of the city, their on going social programs, and with the bonus of sampling local cuisine along the way. Next up a ride on the metro cable which was thrilling and then on to Comuna 13. It was like exploring with an old friend. Comuna 13 was the crown jewel of this experience. Finding out about the violent past and the significance behind the artwork in the murals and listening to the explanation. How the people of the community embraced change and created a “new Medellín”! It is something I will always treasure. Also, being able to interact with the residents was a fabulous treat. This is a tour you must undertake if you come to Medellín. When I come back I will certainly do this tour again.
