An honest account of Escobar's life, excesses, violence and terror delivered by people who grew up during his reign. There is also quite a bit of commentary about Colombia in general and an understandable sense of pride in how Medellin has developed but with work remaining to do. It's not without its sense of humour despite everything. Paola is an... More

There were 11 of us in the minibus and it wasn't too crowded at all. The stops were all interesting and we learned a huge amount about Escobar.The guide shared her personal experiences in a non-emotional, matter of fact way and was also very open about the corruption that still currently exists. Our group all went away wanting to read... More

I had read previous reviews so I was a little sceptical about this tour, however for people who want to learn about the real impact Escobar had on Colombians this is an excellent investment of your time and money. It is true, the bus is a little small and there are not many stops on the tour but I can... More

We spent 3 hours in a tiny bus listening to a very sensitive and nice guide but only stopped in a couple of places of interest and did not learn that much.

Sat in a roasting hot van for three hours, the guide had a bad attitude and kept talking in stupid voices. I don't think they could fit more people in the van if they tried! DO NOT GO ON THIS TOUR book, the real city tour is a lot better and the guides are a lot more friendly and informative

On the positive side the tour gave you a lot of information (facts and figures) about both Pablo Escobar and the period that the city and county was controlled by the cartels. You get to see the house he died in (from across the street) and his grave (up close), plus a few other buildings (but these are from a... More

Really impressive tour, which gives you a lot of insight in life in Colombia during Escobar's reign. Paula was our tour guide and she is amazing. She knows what she's talking about, and really makes the history come to life, including all its terror. Plus her English is really good! Big recommendation, definitely worth the money.
