Medellin Graffiti Tour
Medellin Graffiti Tour
Join us on the “original” Medellin Graffiti Tour as we take a journey through Comuna 13. Once known as Colombia’s most dangerous barrio, we’ll explore how innovative urban regeneration projects and the use of street art have given the area a bright & colorful new future.
You will be led through the barrio by local urban artists, members of the Casa Kolacho collective, responsible for over 90% of the artwork in Comuna 13 (they work exclusively with Toucan’s tour).

Comuna 13’s Transformation
On this tour you will learn how the government tackled the crime and drug gangs head on and how music and art has influenced the transformation of this community. We'll ride the electric escalators, enjoy the stunning panorama of Medellin and even have the chance to try some local Medellin street food along the way.
The Medellin Graffiti Tour is brought to you by Jeihhco and the other co-founders of Casa Kolacho, community leaders and artists who together promote a message of peace through education, hip hop music, graffiti, breakdance and DJ’ing. Casa Kolacho artists are responsible for over 90% of the graffiti art that you’ll see in Comuna 13. Operating without government funding the founding partners all work on a voluntarily basis.
The tour is conducted in Spanish by the members of Casa Kolacho and you will also be accompanied by a bilingual tour guide who will provide additional historical and cultural context as well as English translation. The tour departs in all weather conditions.
