Carlos was extremely knowledgeable and engaging. He speaks excellent English and we really enjoyed that he seems to know and be liked by everyone in comuna 13. He was also very generous with his time.

Carlos gave the best imaginable communa 13 experience
Apr. 2021
this was such an amazing tour. i had no idea the details of what was going on in colombia only 20 years ago.

the fact that these types of tours and help from the government helped build escalators for senior citizens and other folks to use to go up and down the communa is great.

carlos has such a deep understanding of the history and also of the meanings of the many beautiful murals across the communa. he picks you up and drops you off in a nice comfortable car and speaks english well. im definitely going to be going consider going on all of his tours.

Highlight of our time in Medellin
Jan. 2020 • Couples
We had done an Escobar tour with Carlos through City Vibes Tour two days before and our experience with Carlos as our guide felt so comfortable and rewarding that we had to book him again for this Comuna 13 Graffiti and Cable Car Tour. To not embark on a Comuna 13 Graffiti Tour and cable car ride through the district would be unfortunate. Everyone who comes through Medellin must do this tour. Medellin was once dubbed the most dangerous city in the world in the late 80s and today, being able to witness the advancement and progression of this part of the city is amazing. The area has come a long way since it's notorious times, but there's still much work to be done. However, seeing the transformation feels incredibly hopeful. What made the exploration throughout this part of town even more heartfelt is the casual discussions we had with our guide. We felt less like tourists and more like friends, talking and discussing the history and the changes with our guide as we strolled through the comuna, and Carlos ensuring we saw and understood the importance of this place and what it means to the city.

We recommend this company to everyone. We have an amazing and peaceful tours. We go to a full day to Pablo Escobar tour and Guatape, El Peñol boat tour. Carlos " Charlie" explain to us every detailed of the life of Pablo Escobar and took us to see some of the most iconics places of his life. In the same day we go visit Guatape,El poblado de los zocalos, El Peñol and stop in many places to shop. The second day we take the Comuna 13 tour, Metrocable and Plaza Botero. Carlos take the time and with and extensive knowledge explained to us every one of the graffitis. Is the second time we visited Medellin and this time with this tour we have a blast. For My friend (the birthday boy) and his wive was their firts time and we are already planning our next visit. Thank to Cityvibestour for a epic time.

The best tour in Medellin. My Guide Carlos was excellent😊
Aug. 2019 • Friends
My sister and I really enjoyed this tour. Our host Carlos was very knowledgeable about the history of Escobar and Comuna 13 and the Metro system. The tour is private so you are able to ask as many questions as you want and go at your own pace.

Carlos picked us up at our hotel on time, his car was comfortable and he is a good driver. He was very engaging and pleasant so we felt comfortable, he was also our personal photographer so we got alot of good pics together.

It was also very convenient to do all the activities in one tour versus doing several tours. All in all it was a day well spent and an unforgettable experience😊 I highly recommend.

This tour surpassed all of our expectations!!! We're still blown away!
Feb. 2019 • Couples
From the moment that Jean Ruiz picked us up, we were immediately impressed by his amazing and fun personality, his deep knowledge of the city, his stories of the city's past, along with the openness of sharing personal stories that connected with the city. As we walked through Comuna 13, he quickly became a friend. We had an abundance of experienced as we toured Comuna 13, took in all of the art, viewed all of the different neighborhoods on the Metrocable, and ended at the home where Escobar was killed. This was hands down one the of the best tours ever and Jean Ruiz is one of the best guides.

We are very thankful for this experience and would recommend it to everyone.
