Pablo Escobar Historical Tour of Medellín

Pablo Escobar Historical Tour of Medellin

In 1975 and with a personal net worth of more than $25 billion, Pablo Escobar was the 7th-richest man in the world. His successful drug operation had allowed him to own luxurious residences, expensive cars and even airplanes. Although Escobar was held on charges such as murder, bombing, drug smuggling and money laundering, he was depicted at home in Colombia as a Robin Hood-type hero. He spent millions of dollars building schools, hospitals and churches in Western Colombia, giving back to the poorer communities in Medellín.

On this guided sightseeing tour, learn about his life at three historical sites. First, visit the Monaco Building, which was bombed by the rival Cali cartel in an assassination attempt on Pablo Escobar's family. Then, head over to the house where, on December 2nd, 1993, he was shot and killed by Colombian special forces. Finally, make your way to your third stop – Pablo Escobar's grave, located just on the outskirts of Medellín.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2014

Great private tour! Our guide, Camilo Uribe, was wonderful. We learned a great deal while being comfortable in a private SUV. He educated us but also shared his experiences growing up during this dark time in Medellin's history.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

It's a GREAT way to get a sense of Pablo's influence in Medellin and why he is so revered and LOVED at the same time. The rour guide was awesome, he even took us on the "ski lift" to get a general sense of the magnitude of the city.
