Overview
Explore the world of infamous drug trafficker Pablo Escobar during this private guided tour in Medellin. Hear stories about the man who formed the Medellin Cartel and was known as one of the most powerful criminals in the world. The tour takes you to significant locations from his life, including the cemetery where he’s buried.
What to Expect
After being picked up at your Medellin hotel (in El Poblado and Laureles areas only), begin your private tour with a guide, exploring the Colombian city through the life of drug kingpin Pablo Escobar.

Stop at the Monaco Building, which is the starting point of the war between Escobar’s Medellin Cartel and the rival Cali Cartel. Then, visit the church where Escobar sought “blessings” for the bullets his cartel planned to use. The tour also includes a look at the house where Escobar was murdered and the cemetery where he’s buried. Plus, along the way, snack at one of Escobar’s favorite eateries.

Choose the tour upgrade and visit La Catedral, a vacation home that served as Escobar’s makeshift jail after he surrendered in 1991. He escaped authorities in 1992 and died in a shootout in 1993.

At the end of the tour, get dropped off at your Medellin hotel.

A must do in Medellin!

I did the Pablo Escobar Medellin tour with the La Catedral add-on. The guide was so knowledgable - not only about the sites we visited but about the details of Escobar's life. I highly recommend this tour!
