I didn't know what to except but I had a really great time getting to know Lous and comuna 13. Friendly guy, a family man who seemed to know a lot of the people living in the area. Just a genuine guy who knew a lot about the history of comuna 13. I was really happy with experience and got all of it recorded as well ;-)

It was excellent. I loved everything about the tour, especially Sebastian. He’s an incredible guide who is passionate about his community. He is attentive, professional, and went above and beyond my expectations. I recommend it for everyone, but I give a personal recommendation to my solo female travelers. I give it 10 stars.
