“Communa 13 tour - English was poor, little detail from guide”
Review of Medellin Travel

Ranked #109 of 149 Tours in Medellin
Reviewed 2 June 2018 via mobile

We were aiming to do the Communa 13 free walking tour with Zippy tours but the guide didn’t turn up. However a guide from Medellín travel was there and said that he was starting a tour in half an hour and had space for us. He said we could pay what we felt it was worth at the end. Our guide was full of enthusiasm but his English was really poor and most of the group couldn’t understand him. We also didn’t get any depth out of his explanations of the political context or the graffiti. Overall the tour was a lot of walking without much explanation or stops to look at things and we could have learnt more from Wikipedia.

We had a wonderful tour with Leandro! He gave a great introduction to a neighborhood we had originally planned to explore on our own before finding this tour online. Leandro set the scene for us with an explanation of the history of Comuna 13, we visited number of the best murals in the neighborhood, and climbed the escalators. This tour company has local guides who share their unique perspectives on the changes in Medellin. He even went above and beyond, bringing our group to a local spot he frequents for lunch! Definitely recommend for those travelers who like to meet locals and learn about their experience!
