Storyteller tours

Connect with community and learn from their stories 

Community walking tours with locals

Storytellers is a project that supports sustainable tourism through a community and social transformative framework.

Rewarded the Recon Colombia award for Social Entrepreneurship in 2019 in the category of Peace and Human development, this project helps empower people in situations of vulnerabity to take control of their circumstances and connect with opportunity.

Since 2016 we have cocreated with communities in Medellín and around Colombia to help them be storytellers (local tour guides) or use the platform to empower their initiatives and entrepreneurships.

Our guides choose to actively support the social project where they received their storyteller formation

Currently, our Storytellers have tours in:

Comuna 13 - San Javier

Local Comuna 13 residents share their stories of transformation as a marginalised community that converted into an amazing tourism destination thanks to the artistic expression of graffiti artists and the formation of Storytellers offering tours in English and empowering local initiatives.

In what was one of the most dangerous places in the city and the country fifteen years ago, a story of transformation and resilience is shared by the community. The history and culture of the commune are transmitted step by step, until you reach a taste of the local cuisine: homemade ice cream with Colombian fruits.
