I liked the tour, but also think that maybe it wasnt worth the money and time. I enjoyed seeing la catedral the most but you can also do that yourself if you hire an uber or motorbike etc. The guy was nice, and knowledgeable on the subject but there wasnt too much in the tour.

We did this tour with Wilson, who was an amazing storyteller. He not only related the history of Colombia during the time of Pablo Escobar, but also explained how Escobar's actions impacted the future of the country for the negative. It was eye-opening to see the history

Very Educational Tour
This was a great tour. I had my reservations that Escobar would be sensationalized. They did not do that.
