    What to Expect
    Your private tour begins in the morning when you board an air-conditioned car destined for Medellin’s Escobar-related sites.

    Following an unbiased introduction to Escobar’s reign over Medellin, stop at La Catedral Jail—where Escobar’s hitmen murdered several people—and the Monaco Building, where the brutal war between the Medellin and Cali cartels began.

    Plus, you’ll visit Escobar’s final place of residence and see his humble grave on the outskirts of Medellin.

    The tour concludes with hotel drop-off.

    Jorge the guide was incredible and taught me so much. I had goosebumps at every stop of the tour. The one thing was that they closed off the Catedral (which I payed almost double to see up close) and they did not let my tour guide know. So i could not see it well and did not get

    Hey Amin, Thanks for the review bro. I'm glad you had a great experience from start to finish. Also, thanks for pointing out that we are fluent in English. We are all locals that have also lived abroad. This is very important, since most tour companies are not, thus it makes guests frustrated, wasting valuable tour time trying to decipher what they're talking about. Thanks for making the correct choice. Kind greetings from your friends at Medellin Travels! Alex
