You know the name. You know the face. You’ve heard the legends. Now you can see where it all took place. Medellin was the home and base of operation for El Patron, the world’s most notorious criminal, or as you may call him, Pablo Escobar.
The name alone evokes memories of violence and extraordinary wealth. Hi Medellin will take you around Escobar’s home city with a bilingual guide that will tell you all the things you already know, while filling in all the gaps. You will feel all the Narco history come to life as we take you to all his old haunts. We paint a picture of a loving family man who was also a cold-blooded murderer, who wouldn’t let anyone come between him and his objectives. The tour will be in a comfortable car with AC and we will stop to take the best pictures and try some of Medellin’s best snacks! This is why Medellin is known around the world and it is a tour that should not be missed!
This tour offers the complete Pablo package – from his humble roots in the ironically named “La Paz” (Peace in Spanish), to his most lavish and extravagant moments, and crashing back down to the lowest of the lows. You will see where the most significant events of his life took place, and at the same time get to experience some super cool local sights.
This tour is a cut above the rest, as we also take you to climb the famous “Piedra de Peñol” near Guatape town, a breathtaking natural formation which not only offers panoramic views of the emerald-green lakes around it, but also a good spot to spy Pablo’s abandoned mansion, which now lies in ruins on the lake’s edge. The excitement doesn’t stop there, as the tour also includes a boat ride across the lakes to see for yourself the splendor of what once was, now haunted by the ghosts of the thousands of people killed by this drug lord. This diverse tour offers something for everyone – for the history lover, the thrill seeker, and the nature enthusiast alike.
