From Medellín: Private Pablo Escobar History Tour

1. From Medellín: Private Pablo Escobar History Tour

Learn about the dark times suffered by Medellín at the time of Pablo Escobar Gaviria. Gain an understanding of the difficulties, which both the city and its inhabitants strove to overcome to become an example of resilience. Discover the troubled past of the city, and the painful and bloody legacy left behind by the famed drug trafficker. Start the tour in the El Poblado neighborhood, visiting the new Parque de la Memoria, a former Monaco building which was demolished on February 22, 2019 to make way for a renewed space that aims to reconstruct the area's history through art and culture, vindicating the city of its unfortunate reputation of a place of drug trafficking. Next, head to the Barrio Pablo Escobar, a neighborhood founded by Escobar himself to offer free houses to the homeless and the poorest in the city of Medellín.  Finally, arrive to the west of the city and witness the house where he died in its dilapidated state. You can also opt to include a visit to Comuna 13, an area with the most graffiti in Medellin and the largest open-air gallery in Latin America.

Fabian's coffee farm is just outside of Medellin and is of a good size, so that the entire tour can be made quite compact and still very personable and extremely interesting (about 3 hours). Fabian is a second-generation coffee farmer and is full of enthusiasm for coffee and explains/shows the entire process from the plant to the ground beans (tasting included, of course) very clearly. By the way, he speaks very good English. Our tour guide, Lina, was great too. She picked us up in Medellin and not only knew a lot about coffee herself (her parents grow coffee themselves), but generally spoke a lot and openly about life in Colombia and Medellin. Conclusion: We were traveling with two children (3 & 6 years) and can only recommend this tour!

Manuel was a great guide, good English and willing to explain everything you want to know. He is the kind of guide that you want for your Medellin city tour and Pablo Escobar history as well. Born and raised there and knows all the ins and outs of his city. He loves his job and we loved the tour!

Excellent service Manny was an incredible guide and has an incredible knowledge of the Pablo Escobar history. Recomended 100%
