Full description
Take part in one of the most controversial tours of Medellin and learn the history of Pablo Escobar and his Medellin Cartel. Learn how he went from being a common car thief to the world's second richest man, even offering to pay Colombia's external debt of $13 billion at one point!

Revered by many for his work building hospitals, churches, soccer fields, schools and a barrio for the underprivileged, he was also feared and hated by politicians, the Los Pepe vigilante group, the rival Cali Cartel and the families of his thousands of victims.

Benefit from the option of hotel pick-up at 09:00 or 13:30, and then travel in comfort by modern and spacious vehicle exclusive to your party. Take an emotional roller-coaster ride as your guide reveals privileged information that brings the turbulent period to life. Visit a church sanctuary where Escobar and his murderous hit men would go to mass to have their bullets blessed and pray for "perfect hits." 

See the Monaco building (known as the "Building of Terror") where the war between the Cali Cartel and Medellin Cartel started. Stand on the same ground where 2 massive bombs exploded, visit the house where he lived and was murdered, and go to the cemetery where he is buried on the city's outskirts. Stop for lunch at one of his favorite restaurants.
