The Pablo Escobar tour run by Nico was really informative and respected the sensitivity of the events. Everyone in Medellin was impacted in some way so the story Nico conveyed was authentic. Highly recommend doing this.

We enjoyed the tour. It was a good summary of the story of Pablo Escobar. The places we visited were nice but don't expect too much. Overall we would do it again but it was a little but too expensive for what was offered.

Great tour around Medellin. Our guide was very informative and had a great presence. It was an amazing way to follow in Pablo Escobars footstep. I would definitely recommend this tour for people who are interested in the story about Pablo Escobar.

Very informative. Good tour guide, speaks super good English and has a way of telling the story without judging or admiring. I really enjoyed it.

The guide gave lots of information about Pablo Escobar, his business and his personal life. You also get to understandant how people of Medellin were effected by Pablo, because our guide was there at that time. Guide speaks excellent english!

Paisa Road is the name of the company. We booked the day before and just walked directly to the Black Sheep Hostel to make the reservation. Easier to book ahead though. It was between 40,000-50,000 COP. Had a great... More
