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.

We saw all the places so happy I could visit them. Our guide wasn't Julian but another person, Davide who was from Venezuela. I felt the tour would have been a lot better if the story was told by the local who lived through these experiences. On the story telling... It was pretty much non existent. It felt like being driven around the city by a taxi driver who gives a tiny bit of info once at the destination. Davide spoke very basic English and wasn't really able to answer questions. I booked the tour in English but was the only English speaking person in the car, everyone else spoke Spanish. Be aware you spend 90% of the time in the car driving around the city / stuck in traffic. Logistically very poorly organised as you drive back and forth across the city for no good reason (really!) and are stuck in traffic most of the time. Davide was trying to make up for it.. By speeding 110 where the speed limit was 50. Not very relaxing experience I must say. But overall good people and mean well, just need to improve the service as I definitely wouldn't call it "a complete and historic tour" as in my opinion it was quite the opposite.

Great tour with stories that mirrored the version mostly reported with the backstories of what really may have happened during the Escobar era. David Jose filled in for Julian and did a fantastic job. They tour was true to description and did not disappoint!

10/10 I would recommend people to do while visiting in Medellín, Colombia. Julian is a great guide who has provided a lot of information and doesn’t mind answering 100 questions you may wonder about. Julian took us to visit Roberto Escobar Gaviria’s house which was not included in this package but it’s definitely worth paying when getting there. It’s a learning experience. I recommend others to do this tour if you are also interested in knowing the history of Pablo Escobar.
