Best walking tour I’ve ever been on. Our guide Stiven was so passionate and informative.

Hicimos un tour por la comuna 13 con este grupo y fue increíble. Es muy interesante la forma en que se cuenta la historia de la comuna desde un punto de vista propio y local.

Just had a brilliant tour in the comuna 13. Our lovely guide Esteban who we all kind of fell in love with did a great job

This tour was by far the best walking tour I’ve been on anywhere in the world. Most walking tours make you painfully aware of being a tourist, but this felt like I was being welcomed into a community with an amazing story to tell
