my husband and I booked this tour on our trip in medellin. We ended up being the only 2 on tour due to cancellation. This was one of highlights on our trip. Sebastion was a great tour guide. He was phenomenal. He was very knowledgeable about everything. He also took really good care of us. He gave us so much information. He took time to explain the history of Comuno 13 and the graffiti around the community. whenever we are back in Medellin we will definitely come back to see Sebastion.

The BEST experience for Medellin street art. Sebastian was not only personable and energetic but also has a deep respect for the artists and shared insight and the meaning behind why the artists created the various murals.

I had such an incredible time on this tour! Sebastián was an amazing tour guide and so kind, accommodating and knowledgeable. He lives in the area and not only knows it’s history well but that history is a part of who he is. I admire his passion for the city and how thoughtful his storytelling was as he showed us the neighborhood, the art, the innovation and introduced us to the locals. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who is considering it!
