Medellín: The Real Pablo Escobar Tour

1. Medellín: The Real Pablo Escobar Tour

After pickup from your hotel in Medellín or the meeting point, depending on the option chosen, begin your 4-hour tour by visiting the site of Escobar’s former home, where he hid his family and had enemies plant bombs to kill him. Learn about the transformation of this site into a memorial park for victims of Colombia's drug war. Next, head to “la cathedral”, a jail Escobar built for himself in an agreement with the government, from which he later escaped. Afterwards, visit the soccer field Escobar built, known for its visionary design, where he gave speeches in an attempt to make a foray into Colombian politics. To cap things off, make your way to the cemetery, where Escobar is buried along with his family and other members of his gang, including Griselda Blanco. By the end of the day, leave the tour with a better understanding of the negative impact that Escobar had on the country and the lives of the Colombian people.

I Highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to know more about Escobars life.

Very informative tour, tons of behind the scenes and stories untold. Tour guide Daniel was a pleasure to have and also assisted with any questions we had, even the ones not tour related.

Great tour, the guide gave us very details infos. What was important for us is know the opinions of Colombians about Pable Escobar and we are very satisfied.

Daniel (host) did an amazing job! He explained everything to detail and accurate. Would definitely recommend him as a tour guide.
