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 September 2014

The tour was absolutely fascinating! Our tour guide gave us a personal tour four more than the time we had paid for. He was full of information because he actually lived in Medellin during the Pablo Escobar era. He was even able to get us into places that we off limits to the general public! For anyone interested in this part of Medeliin's history--book this tour!

Tour guide was on time which was very important to me. Offered to turn on the A/C. Went right into the tour. Showed me everything as promised. Tour guide was very knowledgeable. He even put on music inspired by the events we were talking about. In summary I'd recommend this tour very much.
