From Medellín: Private Pablo Escobar History Tour

1. From Medellín: Private Pablo Escobar History Tour

Learn about the dark times suffered by Medellín at the time of Pablo Escobar Gaviria. Gain an understanding of the difficulties, which both the city and its inhabitants strove to overcome to become an example of resilience. Discover the troubled past of the city, and the painful and bloody legacy left behind by the famed drug trafficker. Start the tour in the El Poblado neighborhood, visiting the new Parque de la Memoria, a former Monaco building which was demolished on February 22, 2019 to make way for a renewed space that aims to reconstruct the area's history through art and culture, vindicating the city of its unfortunate reputation of a place of drug trafficking. Next, head to the Barrio Pablo Escobar, a neighborhood founded by Escobar himself to offer free houses to the homeless and the poorest in the city of Medellín.  Finally, arrive to the west of the city and witness the house where he died in its dilapidated state. You can also opt to include a visit to Comuna 13, an area with the most graffiti in Medellin and the largest open-air gallery in Latin America.

Highly recommend this tour! Manuel was an amazing private guide! He is super friendly and knowledgeable about the city. Growing up here he has crazy stories and brought the history of Pablo Escobar to bigger light. We learned more than expected and really helped us to understand this complicated chapter in Medellin history. Amazing experience and would recommend him to anyone!

Manuel was a great guide, good English and willing to explain everything you want to know. He is the kind of guide that you want for your Medellin city tour and Pablo Escobar history as well. Born and raised there and knows all the ins and outs of his city. He loves his job and we loved the tour!

First hand experience to truly obtain another perspective into the world of Pablo Escobar.
