We didn't really know what to expect but came away very pleased with our experience. The tour was informal, our guide just picked up in his car which we very much preferred to a massive double decker bus with Escobar's face painted on the side or something.
Our guide Camilo was knowledgeable not only about Escobar but the city of Medellin itself. He had a gameplan but also allowed us to steer the tour toward things that interested us more. He was really easy going and went above and beyond to make us happy. If you're on the fence, do it. It was one of our favorite parts of the trip.
We really enjoyed this tour as well. We sent places other tourists don't go. Camilo provided us with inside information regarding the impact of Escobar on the country. We learned a lot, and this tour remains one of the most memorable for our 20-something children.
This tour is very interesting and takes you to all of the things having to do with Pablo Escobar. We were able to visit his mansion called Monaco.
Interesting private tour. A must-do when visiting Medellin. Pablo Escobar was part of the city's history and they won't forget it. They have learned from it and moved on to the great city it is today.
The story of Pablo Escobar has always intrigued me. I thought I knew a lot about him - I've seen the documentaries, watched the movies, read the books and articles and even the new TV show on Caracol (Colombian) TV. But this tour is different. You'll learn about the his life from a local's perspective who lived in Medellin during the years of Pablo Escobar and how it felt and what it was like. Visiting the three sites related to Escobar makes this tour eerie, but real. Also, I was in Medellin the week after Griselda Blanco was murdered and her grave was being done on the day I visited the cemetery. Creepy. Ask your guide to see her grave, it's close to Pablo's.
