Know More about this tour

In 1975 and with a personal net worth of more than $25 billion, Pablo Escobar was the 7th-richest man in the world. His successful drug operation had allowed him to own luxurious residences, expensive cars and even airplanes. Although Escobar was held on charges such as murder, bombing, drug smuggling and money laundering, he was depicted at home in Colombia as a Robin Hood-type hero. He spent millions of dollars building schools, hospitals and churches in Western Colombia, giving back to the poorer communities in Medelln.

On this guided sightseeing tour, learn about his life at three historical sites. First, visit the Monaco Building, which was bombed by the rival Cali cartel in an assassination attempt on Pablo Escobar's family. Then, head over to the house where, on December 2nd, 1993, he was shot and killed by Colombian special forces. Finally, make your way to your third stop Pablo Escobar's grave, located just on the outskirts of Medelln.

    Do NOT use this company. They cancelled our tour at the last minute. Claimed the main museum was closed. It was open and we went on our own ! Horrible communication and lack of respect.

    This was by far my most favorite tour of all time through my Colombia experience. Our tour guide, Mauricio, brought my family and me through Medellin safely and securely. Not only did we see the beautiful city, but he also made sure that we had everything we needed. Great tour! Highly recommend it! Very cool tour! Good job your doing Mauricio👍🏾

    We had a private tour with two guides. We had seen the Comuna 13 the day before so they were kind enough to readjust our schedule and take us to The Catedral instead. Both guides were really knowledgeable and offered us a great experience. One of the best tours I've done!

    For anyone that is interested in the life and times of the world renowned criminal and biggest drug trafficker of all times! Nevertheless, he also did "good" to the local people of Medellin who still appreciate and honor the man for what he did in helping them live in better homes he actually had build for them. A type of South American Robin Hood.

    Our guide was amazing. He grew up in Medellin during the Pablo Escobar times so he was able to share some real life recollections and stories and how he was affected. We felt very safe with him as well as we visited some areas which used to be very dangerous once upon a time. His English was great and very easy to understand. We loved this tour
