What You Can Expect

Pablo Escobar Historical Tour of Medellín

Pablo Escobar Historical Tour of Medellin

Depart from your Medellin accommodation in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan to begin your journey to the heart of Colombia’s history. Greet your knowledgeable guide and become entranced as you are plunged into a captivating commentary of Pablo Escobar; as one of the world’s richest men, worth over $25 billion dollars, Escobar owned luxurious residences, expensive cars and private airplanes because of the illegal drug operations he orchestrated. Gain insight into the millions of dollars he spent improving the poor community in Medellin, when he ran for Congress and how he was responsible for the violent destruction of the city. 

Visit three significant historical sites during your intriguing tour; begin with Monaco Building, a stolid structure that was bombed by the Cali cartel in an attempt to assassinate Escobar’s family; next, venture to the unassuming house where, on December 2nd upon the roof, Escobar was assassinated by Colombian special forces; and conclude with a visit to Escobar’s unassuming gravestone in a local cemetery. 

Return to your Medellin hotel at the conclusion of the tour.

This was an amazing tour!!! It highlighted important facts and key locations that were prominent in Pablo Escobar's life. I loved this tour because it also focused on key spots in Medellin. We learned so much about the city itself and saw many different neighborhoods. Our driver was Guillermo and our tour guide was Carlina Lopez. They were absolutely phenomenal!!! Carlina was very informative and answered all of our questions, she even introduced us to some of her friends in the area and had us try some famous empanadas and ice pops! Guillermo drove us to all these different locations. At the end of the tour I accidentally left my phone in the car and Guillermo drove back to where he dropped us off and gave it to me!! They couldn't have been nicer. I highly suggest this tour because you will learn so much about Medellin with amazing guides.

Great tour with a very knowledgeable guide. It was a little longer than expected, mostly due to traffic on the road between destinations, but we learned a lot about the history of Pablo Escobar and the city of Medellin in general.

Awesome tour. Our guide Juan Carlos educated us not only on Pablo but also the rich history of Medellin. Far beyond my expectation and worth the price. Juan made us feel as if we were visiting a friend who was showing us around the city. You will have enough pictures to fill a photo album.

Great tour! Our tour guide, Luis Ospina, was very personable and a great story teller/history teacher. He even took us to La Catedral for a small extra fee.
