    Daniela was an excellent tour guide and made the experience so much more! We enjoyed so much we booked the next day tour to downtown, section 13, graffiti and more the following day with her. Such a perfect experience to have someone helping you get around and learning about a new city. She took the time to let us enjoy ourselves and didn’t rush us from one place to another. I highly recommend Daniela!

    Carlos was a great guide and showed us so much of the history of Escobar and his brutality. The tour was about 5 hours and we were more than pleased.

    We had a really nice time with the half day Escobar tour. The Tour Guide, Carlos was very informative and really friendly. We enjoyed it.

    This was a great tour (private car with a driver) to see the city itself as well as see Escobar sights. Our driver/tour operator was knowledgeable, polite, and awesome! Highly recommended!

    This tour was unbelievable. So glad we did it. Make sure you include La Catedral also. I you get motion sick, might want to get some pills before that windy drive up the mountain.

    Oscar did an absolutely wonderful job explaining the life and times of Pablo Escobar. He showed us photos of what the places looked like while everything was happening and it was great to be able to see the changes. We decided to do the upgrade and added La Cathedral to the tour and it was worth it. I did require some walking so I would recommend wearing sneakers. Oscar went above and beyond and if I could give him more stars I would. DEFINITELY RECOMMENDED!

    Lina was an amazing guide. It was great to hear the stories from someone who lived through the events and was able to tell both sides of the story. I would definitely add on the extra option to go see La Catedral, Pablo's prison.

    We traveled to Medellin from the USA in mid-April and took two excellent tours with Alex. The private half day Pablo Escobar Godfather tour and the full day private Guatape, Coffee Villa Tour from Medellin which included El Penol.
    Alex is truly a renaissance man!! He has a fascinating background and shared his interesting story with us. We covered so many topics and he was well versed in all of them. He speaks perfect English and Spanish and has a roomy, clean, well air-conditioned SUV. He knows and fully understands the culture and history of Colombia. His knowledge is priceless and he shares it all with his guests. His first-hand stories about Pablo Escobar are fascinating and expose the complexities of the man.
    Our family of four highly recommends Alex for his insights into this amazing country!

    This tour was awesome!! Oscar was extremely knowledgeable and very passionate about Medellin’s history. He also spoke very good English. This is a must see tour. I would also like to add that Oscar was prompt and very professional.
