    Alex is a Pablo Escobar scholar. We learned so much, not only about Escobar, but the history of the area. Highly recommend!

    Carlos was amazing! The tour was better than we could’ve imagined. He was knowledgeable, fun and so nice. We couldn’t have asked for a better guide!

    BF and I only had a few days in Medellín and I spent a lot of time looking for a solid, dependable tour company. Glad I chose this one and Veronica was great!! You can tell she really cares about the clients and making sure they have a great time in Colombia in general. She warned me about accidentally flashing cash in a market (it was our first day in Colombia) and had the driver leave us off at a great restaurant in Poblado. Did the Catedral add on and everything was fascinating. (She also takes great photos). The company does have unique ties to the Escobar family but they didn't glamorize Pablo. Prompt pickup from our hotel in Laureles. We especially loved that Veronica answered any general questions we had about Colombia while driving between locations. Definitely the highlight of the trip.

    Carlos was a great tour guide. He was very informative and friendly. The tour is very interesting and well worth it. Make sure you upgrade to see the site where Pablo’s jail was. That was the highlight. The views are amazing.

    Excellent tour. Our guide Veronica (Vero) was amazing!!! She was knowledgeable about all the sites and provided us with background info and cultural perspectives. We had trouble with the van we were touring in and Vero made sure we didn't miss a beat. She got us into another vehicle right away to continue our tour, which led us to the "jail". WOWWWWWW. She promised the best pictures and views of the city and she delivered. We did a lot of things in Medellin but hands down this was the best part of our trip.

    Our guide was brilliant, so friendly and knowledgeable. Wasn't just a Pablo tour, we also went for food in a local place which we wouldn't have done otherwise. Also missed a lot of the traffic and other tourists by starting early.

  • 10-Aug-2022

    This was a great tour. Veronica is very knowledgeable. She has a passion for her people and the culture that comes through. We received a well-rounded overview and deep dived on more than one occasion. You’ll love it.

    Our tour guide was very kind, he picked us up on time and was very flexible, however I think there wasn’t a lot of structure when or pre-work done to have a script that the guide could use to tell the audience, the beauty of a guided tour is that your guide takes you thru a story, engages the audience and then takes you to the places where you can see what him/her told you about. Although Escobar is a well-known persona, tour guides should start from the basics and then build from there and sense the audience knowledge to work accordingly

    Vero was the best tour guide! Gustavo was a great driver. I got a great first hand account of what Pablo was really like. I love the moments to the victims. Stories about the city and the culture. Tour is definitely worth it.

    My tour guides Veronica and Julien were wonderful. Warm, inviting and knowledgeable. Special mention to Veronica. She was wonderful. We stopped for local food. Wow. Just amazing. Would I recommend Veronica...IN A HEART BEAT!!! An amazing tour of a more amazing city. Medellin, I will be back!!!!
