Once your bilingual driver has met you at the hotel, tour heads north on a customized journey by car with AC just minutes away. First stop takes place at Pueblito Paisa (little town), cozy replica of a typical Colombian village sitting in the center of the city which shares outstanding panoramic views of the Medellin valley. There is enough free time to walk around and take the best postcard photos or use bathrooms and grab snacks at any time so is recommended to bring cash and/or Colombian pesos since not every store takes credit or debit cards. After a guided visit, our local guide will wait for you to go on to the next stop downtown to visit the barefoot park, park of lights, and the infamous Fernando Botero Plaza where 23 amazing statues of the most popular local artist reside.

 

Just let your guide know when you start to feel hungry so you can enjoy a tasty traditional lunch or dinner as per itinerary at one of the well-recognized local restaurants. Snacks and samples are included in price so feel free to request your guide at any time.

 

During the afternoon, you will learn about the druglord´s extensive cocaine operation and visit four significant locations: his humble barrio growing up and home of his private prison, the Monaco Building where Pablo was once attacked, the house where he was killed and his final resting place next to the black widow, Griselda Blanco who once was his mentor. There is enough free time to walk around at every stop in case you want to take photos and/or ask questions.

 

At the end of the journey you can make your own conclusions after getting tips from your local guide how it was like during those rough days and what the city had to overcome in order to become one of the most innovative cities on earth and one of the most resilient according to the Rockefeller Foundation. After approximately 8 hours of a fantastic journey, you should be already familiar with Medellin´s main icons and gastronomy as your private driver/guide takes you back to your hotel or any other location you feel like.
