Escobar and more!

Daniela was an excellent tour guide and made the experience so much more! We enjoyed so much we booked the next day tour to downtown, section 13, graffiti and more the following day with her. Such a perfect experience to have someone helping you get around and learning about a new city. She took the time to let us enjoy ourselves and didn’t rush us from one place to another. I highly recommend Daniela!

Jorge, our guide, was fantastic. We spent the day learning not only about Pablo Escobar and events and locations relative to his life, but also talking about many things that contributed to the distinctive experience of the Colombian people generally and the people of Medellin and Antiochia in particular. It was a fascinating and enjoyable day. Highly recommended.

My tour guide was David..I can’t say enough good things about him..great guy and very knowledgeable about this tour. However I felt like I was robbed without a pistol...sorry I excepted so much more. Save your money and watch Narcos on Netflix this tour is not worth $170.00..maybe $80.00

Oscar did an absolutely wonderful...
Michele S.
, Jul 2018
Oscar did an absolutely wonderful job explaining the life and times of Pablo Escobar. He showed us photos of what the places looked like while everything was happening and it was great to be able to see the changes. We decided to do the upgrade and added La Cathedral to the tour and it was worth it. I did require some walking so I would recommend wearing sneakers. Oscar went above and beyond and if I could give him more stars I would. DEFINITELY RECOMMENDED!
