Most tour operators are trying to copy this fascinating tour around Medellin´s past and present guided by Carlos the excop, so feel free and ask to see his ID and full name CARLOS PALAU. He used to be part of the SWAT team going after Pablo back in the days. For security reasons Carlos left Colombia and relocated in the states where he learned his impressive english skills. 30 years later Carlos is back in Medellin and is a father of two phenomenal teenagers.

Medellin City Services® and Medellin City Tours© are sisters companies and the only ones offering the excop´s unique service around the city. For a reasonable Price take an exclusive 4 hour tour with Carlos and get to know spectacular inside histories with one of the few remaining witnesses of those rough times.

This tour will provide a great learning experience as to what should NOT happen in society and which characters should be the real heroes.

We did the Escobar Tour with Carlos and it was very interesting. He knows a lot about this topic and can tell lots of good stories and facts from the past. Carlos is a very good guide, speaking good english and has a good humor. Highly recommended.
