*** Medellin was chosen by popular vote through the internet as the number one most "Innovative City of the Year" in a contest organized by The Wall Street Journal and Citigroup in 2013. The distinction was made for its modern transportation system, public library, escalators built in the hillside barrio of Comuna 13 and schools that have allowed the integration of society.
''Comuna 13 Tours offers travelers a unique opportunity to explore another side of Medellin outside of the popular tourist district of El Poblado. I loved all the bright and colorful homes at the top of the outdoor escalators in Comuna 13. The residents in the area were very pleasant and easily approachable. The children smiled and waved as the gringos explored their community. The ride up the metro cable cars opened my eyes to the daily struggles of residents in the multiple communities down below. I have deep admiration for the hardworking locals who somehow manage to appreciate life, living each day to the fullest. I would say that this is the real Medellin tours.'' - Tom Sullivan, NYC
