    What to Expect
    Meet your private guide in the lobby of your Medellin hotel at the predetermined meeting time. Then, head to "Los Olivos", the neighborhood where Pablo Escobar, one of the most well-known Colombian drug lords, was murdered. Visit the Monaco's building where you will admire its elegant marble front. This building used to hold the art collection, cars and other eccentric possessions. This building is now being watched by the local authorities.

    See the most exclusive cemetery of the city, where the infamous criminal's tomb is located, Jardines de Montesacro. People often visit his tomb and write messages for him. The tour will conclude with a visit to the Pablo Escobar neighborhood, Barrio Pablo Escobar. The neighborhood includes 800 houses and a church donated by Pablo, home to 16,000 people who used to live in a dumpster back in 1982. This project was called “Medellín sin tugurios”. End your tour with a transfer back to your accommodations.
