Medellín: Private Pablo Escobar Tour with Cable Car Ride

1. Medellín: Private Pablo Escobar Tour with Cable Car Ride

Learn all about Pablo Escobar's life on a 4-hour guided, private tour in Medellín including three main stops: Inflexion Memorial Park, La Catedral jail, and a cable car ride to enjoy a panoramic view of the West side of the city for unforgettable photo opportunities. Hear interesting anecdotes as a knowledgeable guide presents Pablo Escobar's history on a sightseeing tour of the most famous locations linked to the drug lord, and how he affected Medellín and Colombia as a whole. Start your tour by visiting the Inflexion Memorial Park, built in 2019 on top of the lot of the old Monaco Building, a former property of the drug lord, to commemorate the 46,612 victims who were killed during his rule. Take a moment to walk through the moving space while your guide tells you facts of that time. Next, make your way to La Catedral, a personal prison Pablo Escobar built for himself — and where he spent five years — on top of a hill overlooking the city. It is said that he could choose who guarded him, and that the prison was built more to keep his enemies out than to keep him in. Drive on to visit the cemetery where Pablo Escobar is buried, as well as the neighborhood in which he spent his teenage years, and the house where he died. End your tour with a spectacular panoramic view of the West side of the city on a cable car ride before being dropped back off at your hotel.

This tour was great. Carlos really went out of his way to ensure we had a great experience. He was very knowledgeable about the history, and he answered all the questions we had as well! He even offered to take pictures for us when we were visiting the beautiful sites. I enjoyed this tour very much & I’m going to recommend this one to anyone who would like a tour to learn about Pablo’s impact to Medellín and Colombia itself!

Great tour about the Medellin's turbulent history. Carlos is a great guide, very pleasant and knowledgeable, with friendly approach. There is enough time to see everything what is in the itinerary. Worth to mention that the car is very comfortable.

Carlos was an amazing guide, It was raining - but we saw everything and were able to see and go - to all the different places. The aerial TRAM-- wow!-- to go up all the way- amazing work

Fantastic, Carlos was very knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting
