Medellín: Private Pablo Escobar Tour with Cable Car Ride

1. Medellín: Private Pablo Escobar Tour with Cable Car Ride

Learn all about Pablo Escobar's life on a 4-hour guided, private tour in Medellín including three main stops: Inflexion Memorial Park, La Catedral jail, and a cable car ride to enjoy a panoramic view of the West side of the city for unforgettable photo opportunities. Hear interesting anecdotes as a knowledgeable guide presents Pablo Escobar's history on a sightseeing tour of the most famous locations linked to the drug lord, and how he affected Medellín and Colombia as a whole. Start your tour by visiting the Inflexion Memorial Park, built in 2019 on top of the lot of the old Monaco Building, a former property of the drug lord, to commemorate the 46,612 victims who were killed during his rule.  Take a moment to walk through the moving space while your guide tells you facts of that time. Next, make your way to La Catedral, a personal prison Pablo Escobar built for himself — and where he spent five years — on top of a hill overlooking the city. It is said that he could choose who guarded him, and that the prison was built more to keep his enemies out than to keep him in. Drive on to visit the cemetery where Pablo Escobar is buried, as well as the neighborhood in which he spent his teenage years, and the house where he died. End your tour with a spectacular panoramic view of the West side of the city on a cable car ride before being dropped back off at your hotel.

Learn about the life and times of the drug lord Pablo Escobar on a guided tour of Medellin and discover how the city has changed since his death in 1993. Loved and feared by millions, Pablo Escobar’s story is intimately linked to the recent history of Colombia’s second largest city. Travel back to the time of Pablo Escobar's reign over the city and learn about his extensive cocaine operation. Visit many historical sites with Escobar associations, from the modest community where he grew up to the house where he was shot dead in 1993, and his grave next to the “Black Widow” drug lord, Griselda Blanco. Another highlight is the Monaco Building (Edificio Monaco) where he lived and survived a bomb attack by the rival Cali cartel that was designed to kill him. For the second half of the 8-hour tour, head east for an hour to see Escobar’s abandoned mansion “La Manuela” from top of the El Peñol rock. Then take some time to explore the beautiful facades of the Guatapé village, grab a bite to eat and use the facilities.

This guy can help plan out your entire stay in Medellin and enrich you with cultural, geographical, and historical knowledge of Pablo and all of Colombia.

Terrific day with guide and driver David to see the sights of Pablo Escobar, including La Cathedrale and the Memorial Park. Guatape with the private boat ride along the waters with views of the celebrity mansions including Escobar and the climb to El Penol Rock was memorable. Well worth the day trip.

This was probably one of the best tours I have ever been on. Our guide, Juan, was very knowledgable and respectful. We were picked up on time, got to see all the sites, and we never felt rushed. Highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Medellin.

Very nice tour, and our tour guide Andres was really informative, he answered all of our questions and very fun to spend the day around. I would 100% recommend this tour to anyone visiting Medellin.

We learned much more from this tour then from watching the series. I'm glad we decided to take the tour.
