This was my 5th visit to Medellín and for each trip I try to find something unique to do that I haven’t experienced yet. I came across the graffiti tour of comuna 13 and I think this is one of my favorite tours I have done. The meeting point is easy to find and I liked that they include using public transit into the tour. Once we were in comuna 13 it was inspiring to hear how this neighborhood has transitioned into what it is today. Enjoyed trying local foods of the area and the “cremas” were my favorite! This tour is a must if you want an authentic local experience in Medellin!JoeyBonura (TripAdvisor Review)
“A hightlight of our trip. We are coffee snobs, and boy did we have a blast doing this two-hour coffee tasting class at Toucan Cafe.” NYCleveland (TripAdvisor Review)
If you are not able to visit a coffee plantation during your stay in Medellin, definitely take this Coffee Tasting Experience. The amount of detail they provide over the coffee making process is extraordinary. Juan (TripAdvisor Review)

Passport Heavy Video Review

This was a very enjoyable workshop and a highlight of our stay in Medellin. As a coffee lover, I have always wanted to do a similar workshop in Australia, however the cost appears 3 times the amount for a similar duration course. Highly recommended for anybody interested in the art of making great coffee.Bler2103 (TripAdvisor Review)
We did the graffiti tour and the volunteering tour with Toucan while studying Spanish there. Both tours were awesome, and we would highly recommend them to anyone.Koen (TripAdvisor Review)
Ten stars!!!
This tour could not have been any better. I would even go back. Our guide Oscar was all around perfecto! I learned so much, tried some amazing food, and saw a very different side to this city. Oscar even helped me with some arrangements after the tour. All incredibly professional and educational. Go on the Medellin Graffiti Tour of Comuna 13 and ask for Oscar.anothersunset (TripAdvisor Review)
Everytime I travel, I try to take a course of the “specialty” of that country. So finding this Barista Workshop was super cool. My husband and my best friend loved the experience. The class was excellent, it opened our eyes about coffee. Balmeri (TripAdvisor Review)

Sustainable Tourism

Our tours focus on promoting historic, cultural, social & environmental themes whilst leaving a positive impact on the communities that we visit. Group tours help reduce our overall environmental footprint. People ask why we don’t do Pablo Escobar tours. To be honest there’s really nothing to see, Pablo died over 20 years ago, the city is a different place.

At Toucan we believe the children are the future. The Medellin Graffiti Tour supports the Casa Kolacho foundation and the education of hundreds of local kids throughout Comuna 13. Every person who attends this tour is directly supporting this worthwhile project.  To date over 5,500 people have attended the tour, supporting Casa Kolacho to the amount of USD25,000.
