Overview
The Pablo Escobar Godfather tour is the most sought out private tour here in Medellin.

This tour takes you to sites situated in four counties to experience the last house he lived at, the house where he died on the roof, the yellow house where the show "Narcos" was filmed, the famous soccer field he built for the kids and the community, the cemetery where he is buried in the outskirts of Medellin, a visit to the Church Sanctuary where the Virgin Mary appeared and where Pablo Escobar and his hit men would go to mass to have their bullets blessed for "perfect hits", and one of his favorite restaurants where you can have a snack or relish lunch!

For an additional fee, there is a Tour Upgrade Option to  “LA CATEDRAL”,

Pablo´s Jail-vacation home, nestled high in the Andes mountains overlooking the city. Be one of the few people to visit what was once the most famous narco-compound in the World!

What to Expect
After being picked up at your Medellin hotel (in El Poblado and Laureles areas only), begin your private tour with a guide, exploring the Colombian city through the life of drug kingpin Pablo Escobar. Stop at the church where Escobar sought “blessings” for the bullets his cartel planned to use, plus other sights including the house where he was murdered and the cemetery where he’s buried. Plus, along the way, snack at one of Escobar’s favorite eateries. Choose the tour upgrade and visit La Catedral, a vacation home that served as Escobar’s makeshift jail after he surrendered in 1991. He escaped authorities in 1992 and died in a shootout in 1993. At the end of the tour, get dropped off at your Medellin hotel.

We enjoyed our private tour with Carlos. He was friendly and knew a lot about Medellin and the history of Pablo Escobar and gave us a real feel for how challenging a period it was for the people of Colombia.

Very interesting tour! We wanted an honest tour and that is exactly what we got; the good, the bad and the ugly. Due to protest in the city we drove around with a second group but still got our own car and guide. The fact that they choose this option showed us they took the
