    What a truly incredible tour this was... My guide Carlos Palau was awesome! Not only did he take care of my every need during this day tour, including picking me up from the airport at 6.40am as that was the time my flight arrived from Bogota, even though the tour was not scheduled to start until 8am, but he is also fantastic company, a genuinely lovely bloke with a mind full of information about Pablo and Medallin during those days as he worked as a police officer back then. He showed me photographs taken during the capture and shooting of Escobar as well as photos of him and his family taken during the same period. I twisted my ankle quite badly whilst climbing El Penol first thing in the morning and Carlos could not have been more helpful and attentive and made sure I still managed to complete everything on the itinerary and more... A fantastic day, fabulous tour with an awesome guide! High recommend for anyone interested in stories of P.E and those famous drug running days! 5 star x

    This tour is HIGHLY recommended! My day was just AMAZING! My tour guy Silvio was AWESOME! It is an ALL day event... It felt as if my tour guy was family...such a presence, knowledge, sense of humor, humble, so comfortable being around him. My friend and I instantly felt we were in good hands. He spoke about his family personal background, as well as the history of Pablo Escobar during that era... his narration was just AWESOME. Our day began going to El Barrio de Pablo Escobar, visiting where he spent his last moment alive, his grave, a boat to view the location of his abandoned mansion now ruins, while ending our Pablo Tour and day going to El Penol and having a delicious coffee in Guatape. I cant express how much I enjoyed this day and learning about Colombia.

    The ONLY down side to this Tours' description which I have notified Viator is:
    it states you are able to have access walking into El Monaco to view Pablo's walk-in safe.
    Walk around his semi-destroyed Monaco building where the first car-bomb in Colombia took place in the late 80s. Unfortunately, the government has taken over the property and NO access inside is available.
    And it also states, take a private boat to Pablos abandoned mansion, where you can walk around and take photos of what is left after years of curious visitors tearing down walls and cabinets.-also NOT available to go inside, as this is government property now and NO entry inside allowed. You do take the boat ride by the mansion and are able to take photos from the boat.

    The only reason I gave this tour a fully 5 star was because I had such a good time/ great day and so excited to learn about this era and Colombia and the knowledge of my tour guy Silvio and his form of narration, as well as providing his personal life testimonials...
    However, I did notify Viator...so anyone who is into this Full Day Pablo Escobar Tour does NOT expect to go inside El Monaco Building, as well as go inside La Manuela Mansion Ruins, as NO ACCESS is allowed INSIDE.
