We’ve all heard the stories and are all familiar with the culture behind Pablo Escobar. But do we know the truth? Our Pablo Escobar Tour Medellin is an educational 3 hour tour that takes you all-around the city. You’ll visit his properties, see the house where he was gunned down by the Colombian government (with the help from the CIA) and visit his grave.
However, after months of planning, Medellin’s mayor changed the scene. On February 22nd, 2019, Federico Gutierrez (Medellin’s mayor since 2016) ordered one of Pablo Escobar’s most famous properties (Monaco Building) demolished. To many, for a man like Escobar with over 500 properties, this demolition was uneventful, but it’s because of a few bad apples, that the building came down. The mayor and city have been outraged because of the many Narcos lovers that desecrate these places and one even went as far as to record himself consuming drugs right off of Escobar’s tombstone.
This harbored resentment from locals who want the Pablo Escobar Tours in Medellin gone. Our tour is more historical, more unbiased and more seeing the before and after of the Escobar era.
