Explore the notorious legacy of Pablo Escobar during this private tour investigating the one-time Medellín hangouts and neighborhoods inhabited by the drug kingpin and his gang. This Escobar-themed tour of Medellín is as much a celebration of the city’s economic and social resurgence as it is a trip down memory lane. Visit sites that once hosted fierce turf battles between the Cali and Medellín cartels in the 1980s. Then check out the safe, thriving neighborhood of Comuna 13, once used by Escobar to recruit his army of assassins and killers. Your Escobar trip also includes a guide, bottled water, and a metro ticket.
