I can’t even make justice with words to this amazing experience. This was my first solo travel and I felt as if I had gone partying with a friend. I was the only one booked for that hour but SAG tours didn’t mind to dedicate a tour guide to myself. Daniela is a local young, respectful, cheerful and knowledgable guide. I had a blast, learned a lot and took awesome pics. Don’t hesitate to book!

Excelente experiencia! Hace mucho había querido ir al Tour. Tanto los grafitis como la historia de la comuna fueron muy impactantes. Lo que mas me gusto fue que hubo un acercamiento cultural al contexto actual que vive la gente de la comuna. Lleno de vida, música, baile y muy buenas vistas. Daniela nuestra guía fue excelente! ella nació en la comuna 13 y se sabe muy bien la historia, nos ayudo a tomar fotos y nos dio el tiempo prudente para disfrutar del lugar. Juan carlos también nos atendió muy bien y nos dejo hace run graffiti al final. Totalmente recomendable y seguro volveré. Gracias Dani y Juan Carlos!

This was a great tour. It was very easy finding Yesbelle, our SAG tour guide at the metro station. From there we had a great tour with Yesbelle whose knowledge of the individual murals was deep and really enhanced the experience of touring Comuna 13. Definitely recommend!

We booked the tour for the wrong day and Juan honored the reservation for the next day. That was nice! We enjoyed the tour very much. Our guide Lois was very friendly and knowledgeable.

Nuestro tour no los ofreció Daniela, una chica nacida y criada en la Comuna 13. Daniela, a pesar de solo tener 20 años, es una chica muy educada y conocedora de la historia... es muy valioso vivir la experiencia de conocer la Comune 13 a través de personas que viven la realidad día a día. Les recomiendo el tour, fue una experiencia muy enriquecedora.
