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.
