Aftermath of Medellin

George our tour guide was awesome in re-living the true events of infamous Pablo. What good Pablo did for Medellin and community also came with bad events that occurred. I highly recommend this tour.

Thanks for the best tour ever

I did a Pablo Escobar tour with Aba, and it is hands down the best tour that I have ever done, and I have done a lot across the world. Aba is genuinely passionate about her beautiful city and full of knowledge about its history and current happenings. She knows it all, from the bigger picture to intricate details. On top of it, she was extremely friendly, patient, accommodating, and ensuring that you would have the best tour ever. My time with her made me learn so much about Medellin, its people, and culture that I would have never have known. I have long left Medellin, but I have such deep appreciation and fondness for Medellin and its people because of her tour. I cannot wait to revisit Medellin and explore it further, and I highly recommend having a tour with Aba. The experience will be priceless and enriching. She is a great ambassador for her city.

Thank you for taking your precious time writing this beautiful review. It brings me great jubilation when a guest feels enamored with our beloved city due to one of our guides. Indeed, Alba and all of our guides for that matter are great ambassadors for Medellin. This is why most people book not just our Pablo tour, but ALL of their tours with us. They know that with Medellin Travels their vacation will be an unforgettable one. We appreciate you and love you as we do all of our guests...and YES...contact us when you come back! We have many repeat guests that always come back! Cheers, Alex from Medellintravels.com

The tour was very interesting and informative. Our guide was very knowledgeable, attentive, and organized. Learning about this aspect of Colombian history was more meaningful because we visited relevant places and neighborhoods, putting it all into context. This tour combined with a few museums is a must do for anyone who is interested in Colombian history.

We had an incredible time learning through Jorge, our tour guide. His depth of knowledge and personal experiences helped us understand and feel what it was like to live through such a memorable time. He answered all of our questions and explained how all of these events created what we see today. Gustavo was an amazing driver throughout the journey. You won't find an experience like this on the internet or through any TV show.
