First of all let me introduce myself, my name is Julian Montoya, businessman in the tourism sector with more than 9 years of experience in tourism in Medellín and Antioquia under my two companies Blue Sky Paragliding & Experiences Tours Medellin created since 2012. I am a Bulldog dog breeder Frances, paragliding pilot, historian, and for more than 8 years I have worked and lived from local and national tourism. I like to tell the story of Pablo Escobar but I want to tell you the part that others don't tell you, I want to take you to other places that the most famous drug lord in the world frequented in his rise to power. It is no secret to anyone that Pablo Escobar did a lot of damage to our society and the country, for that same reason we will try to give this tour a different point of view than usual, becoming more informative.

I rate this five stars because David (Julian's partner) spent way more time with us than expected, and even offered to show us more the next day because there was still a lot to see! These guys know their history and it goes beyond the Narcos series. There are many review out there saying that the Escobar tour is controversial. If you're on the fence like I was, I recommend going on the tour for the sake of learning about history of Medellin, even if it's dark. I found this tour insightful in ways I didn't expect, and though the controversy is still there, I am glad I went. David, our guide, had integrity and I really appreciated his service.

Had an amazing experience learning everything there is to know about Pablo and his family. Got a really cool tour of his jail and some of the surprisingly positive things Pablo did for the people. Overall it was well worth it if you want to see some less visited areas of Medellin with a great tour guide.

Julian was very informative, so glad we went with this tour because you actually get off and see the locations for yourself as he explains. He is an expert so ask him any questions. If you are looking to learn more about this part of Medellin’s history, look no further and book this one.
