29 Nov Pablo Escobar Tour – Full Day
You know the name. You know the face. You’ve heard the legends. Now you can see where it all took place. Medellin was the home and base of operation for El Patron, the world’s most notorious criminal, or as you may call him, Pablo Escobar.On this full day tour, you will travel through time to a very different Medellin to the one we know and love today, to a politically fraught and unstable Medellin that was ruled by the all powerful drug lord. You will learn the story of the places that were most relevant in the 44 years of Pablo’s life. From urban landscapes to stunning rural sceneries, you will relive the slow climb to power and eventual demise of El Patron.
Your private bilingual driver will pick you up in a comfortable, air-conditioned car and take you to the modest neighbourhood where Pablo grew up, and you will see from there how he began to build luxurious properties all around the city as his wealth began to grow to a point where it was almost out of control. You will also visit the Monaco building, where the first car-bomb in Colombia was set off, initiating a bloody war between the Medellin and Cali drug cartels.
Try not to get creeped out by the ghosts at Pablo’s old prison, the “Cathedral”, and whilst visiting his grave. You will also see the place where the narco kingpin was caught barefoot. The tour will then take you to postcard-pretty Guatapé, where you will be transported by private boat to his abandoned mansion and where you can also revel in the delights of one of Colombia’s prettiest and most colourful towns.
This is an unmissable all-inclusive experience with inside knowledge that gives you an insight into the violent, tragic and merciless life of Pablo Escobar, a man who changed Colombia in many ways, and whose influence can still be felt throughout the country.
