Overview
Explore the world of infamous drug trafficker Pablo Escobar during this private guided tour in Medellin. Hear stories about the man who formed the Medellin Cartel and was known as one of the most powerful criminals in the world. The tour takes you to significant locations from his life, including the cemetery where he’s buried.
Highlights
  • Get a taste of Medellin by tracing the life of Pablo Escobar
  • Private tour with morning and afternoon start times
  • Tour upgrade includes a visit to Escobar's “jail” in the mountains
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off from certain parts of Medellin is included
What to Expect
After being picked up at your Medellin hotel (in El Poblado and Laureles areas only), begin your private tour with a guide, exploring the Colombian city through the life of drug kingpin Pablo Escobar. Stop at the church where Escobar sought “blessings” for the bullets his cartel planned to use, plus other sights including the house where he was murdered and the cemetery where he’s buried. Plus, along the way, snack at one of Escobar’s favorite eateries. Choose the tour upgrade and visit La Catedral, a vacation home that served as Escobar’s makeshift jail after he surrendered in 1991. He escaped authorities in 1992 and died in a shootout in 1993. At the end of the tour, get dropped off at your Medellin hotel.

Awesome guide (Daniella). I did the tour + La Catedral. Driven around in comfortable minibus. The private 1 on 1 aspect of the tour really makes the difference. No rushing. Plenty of time to chat about anything, not just Pablo related. Had a really great time. Highly recommended.
