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 church where Escobar sought “blessings” for the bullets his cartel planned to use, plus other sights including the house where he 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.

Amazing tour!

Daniela our tour guide is excellent and was a great tour guide. She was well informed of the knowledge of Pablo Escobar’s life. The day started with the home he died, the cemetery, the cathedral and the Monaco building.

Its about 4 hrs without the house tour, think you are probably closer to 8hrs with the house portion included as I believe its a 45min-1 hour drive each way to the house....
