We did the Pablo Escobar tour and Comuna 13 with Daniel. We were given a private tour and really enjoyed it. Daniel is very knowledgeable not only about those places but Colombian history and Culture in general. I did the tour while pregnant and he was constantly checking if I was ok to continue. He was very accommodating making sure we had drinks during the tours and breaks which allowed me to finish the whole tour and enjoy it despite my condition. My boyfriend is into Pablo Escobar' story, me not so much. I particularly enjoyed going to comuna 13. I will definitely recommended this company and Daniel of course. They are punctual, reliable, safe and serious business.

It was a great experience, my tour guide Juan was very knowledgeable. The walk through comuna 13 seeing all the graffiti was my favorite part. If you have any interest in Escobar’s part of this country’s history this tour is a must. I highly recommend it.

This was such a good tour. Wilson was so knowledgable and thought us so much about the days of Pablo. It was so good to go to Comuna 13 too, something really special about the place and it has some beautiful wall art. Highly recommend this tour.

My friend and me did this tour with Wilson on our last day in Medellin, and we wish we'd done it sooner! Hotel pickup in an air conditioned car, and on the busy roads of Medellin he was such a calm safe driver. The tour of commua 13 was excellent, he took amazing pictures for us and videos and introduced us to some of the people there. The Pablo Escobar half was also brilliant, he took us to the roof Pablo was killed on and also his grave, and la catheral with an incredibly detailed and interesting commentary for each. Such a great tour, I would recommend anyone coming to Medellin to book this!

We spent a brilliant half day with Wilson doing the Pablo Escobar your and Communa 13.

Just go ahead and book this tour. Air conditioned car, private guide, fantastic door to door service and the ability to spend as long or as short of a time at each place. We met so many people who did bus tours and trust me, if you’re coming all the way to Medellin, just do this tour!

We first explored C13, it was empty before all the other groups arrived and was brilliant to meet some of the locals and explore the area. We then followed the Pablo route and Wilson’s knowledge was brilliant. We discussed every aspect from the history of Pablo to the knock on effects to now, the communities feelings on the Narcos tourism and we learnt so much.

We had a brilliant explore of La Catedral, going for the views alone would have been enough but Wilson took us to every corner. For any Narcos fan it’s brilliant to see but this isn’t a tour to celebrate the show. It’s the gritty reality and the positives on the reformed location and it’s new uses too.

Wilson not only has outstanding English, but he knows so many people in the communities it added such a nice touch. From meeting the Graffiti artists in C13 to taking fantastic photos of us in the duration. He really was one of the best guides I’ve ever had on a tour and we felt we had made great friends by the end of the trip together.

Thank you Wilson! From Jo and Gabi

We had an amazing day on this tour with the best guide ever Juan. Juan was informative, friendly, professional and his knowledge was fantastic as was his English. Comuna 13 is an incredible place to visit, once a no go area due to the violence of the Escobar days the place now has amazing graffiti artwork and a incredibly friendly and safe vibe to it. The escalator system they have put in place for the people living there is a god send, I really don’t know how they managed before it and one section is still to be completed. We visited the prison where Pablo was held, the rooftop where he was killed and his graveside. The tour in no way glamourises Escobar it only reaffirms the death and destruction he brought to a beautiful city and country and Juan was very honest about this situation. I would highly recommend this tour and Juan and if you are narcos fan which i am you will love it even more. There is so much more to Medellin and Colombia than the Escobar days and I recommend everyone visits this beautiful city. Loved my time here and will definitely be back.
