Wonderful, informative tour
"Jhoan was very attentive, thoughtful, respectful, and knowledgeable as a guide. He provided lots of information about Comuna 13 as well as local history. He also provided tips for the rest of the city and my stay in Colombia. He tailored the tour to my interests very well. Seeing Comuna 13 with his guidance felt safe and gave another layer of understanding to the experience of the community here and the transformation that has happened. Would highly recommend him as a guide to others! Thank you Jhoan! "AdrianaAbout local Jhoan Medellin, August 2023

Really interesting tour
"Jhoan had some really interesting information & shared his personal experience of being from communa 13. The tour followed all the major graffiti art sites and then we finished by the cable car so we could experience the views over the city. It was around 2.5 hours in total and all Ran smoothly!"JAbout local Jhoan Medellin, July 2023

"Incredible experience around Medellin with Jhoan! He is so flexible for time of tours, dates and will adapt to almost anything! Very friendly and passionate about his city he will take the time to answer every question that you may have! I would recommend Jhoan to anyone looking for the best local experience, regarding food around the city, history and culture and even history of the #1 religion in Colombia, futból! See you soo amigo :) "PhilippeAbout local Jhoan Medellin, July 2023
Expert guide and historian
"Jhoan was superb at explaining the history and significance of the graffiti on the tour. He was very interesting and explained in great detail. His english is super. Through his storytelling you can really tell that jhoan loves medellin and Columbia. He was very patient and let us ask a million questions. We also got to watch a good hip hop dance performance. We highly recommend taking any tour with jhoan!"brandieAbout local Jhoan Medellin, July 2023
Amazing experience for both tours
"We took a last minute city highlights tour and added in a cable car ride and a pre scheduled comuna13 tour, both with Johan. He was amazing. Very responsive with messages and where to meet. His English is great and he tells you the history and social/political meanings behind statues and buildings. His comuna13 tour is a true gem. He lived there when the violence was happening and can tell you true stories and really make you appreciate how much things have changed in such a short time. He also helped us with suggestions on places to have dinner and hang out in our neighborhood as well as drive times to the airport for our flight. 10/10 would reccomend. "BrianaAbout local Jhoan Medellin, June 2023
Great Tour! Great Guide!
"My partner and I went on a tour of Comune 13 with Jhoan. He was prompt with communication, on time and provided excellent historical and contemporary information about Comune 13. Having grown up in Comune 13 he had direct knowledge and experience of important events and experiences that are imperative to share. Take this tour. Learn about Comune 13 and through it the Colombian people. We loved this tour."IanAbout local Jhoan Medellin, May 2023
"Jhoan was the best! I had some trouble the day before and he offered to meet me closer. Then the subway was closed and he found me at the previous stop. He went out of his way to make sure our day started off right! The knowledge and history he brings to the table is absolutely amazing! He knew a few locals in the comuna and was able to introduce me. He also did an amazing job explaining the art and history of this area. I highly recommend this tour! "GeoAbout local Jhoan Medellin, April 2023
Best Comuna 13 and Medellin Tour Guide
"My wife and I booked a Comuna 13 tour with Johan. The experience was incredible from start to finish! He is very knowledgeable about the history of this commune as he grew-up there. His lived experience provides a unique perspective of how this commune in the past 30 years has evolved from the most dangerous commune in Medellin to a proud, resilient community uniting to find peace and harmony. The graffiti artwork is spectacular and represents the pain, suffering, and hope of its inhabitants. Besides the history and sightseeing, Johan was extremely helpful by taking us to several art galleries within Comuna 13 where we found a fabulous piece of art. After our tour ended, Johan walked us to the metro station. This was above and beyond what we expected. Johan is an amazing Colombian with a big heart. You will not regret booking a tour with Johan!
