  • Very happy with this tour. We had an English speaking guide who was very thorough and knowledgeable. The tour was a little pricey for an external tour of the property ($22 USD). I wish we got a tour of the inside of the house, but still recommend going to this museum.
  • The museum is worth it if you have an interest in Pablo Escobar, but it is expensive compared to other museums and tours in Colombia and an obvious tourist trap. You will get massively overcharged in the shop. We did the 2.5h tour as well which I strongly recommend you don't do. They will take you to visit a statue of Virgin Mary built by Pablo Escobar, a monument for the fallen police officers and the cemetery where he was buried. This was not worth 2h and I wish I had seen another museum during that time.
  • It was a unique experience with our guide EL CUBANO, who explained with luxury and details everything related to Pablo Escobar, his life of luxury, his difficult moment, with the Colombian government, and with the other enemy cartels, his family, the attack against his family, the history of the museum that was his house, the vault where he kept his money, the attack against him, how his car was left, his race car and his plane. Etc.
  • I was very happy with the tour. I learned a few things that I had not before such as more about the family and more details about some of the details of what Escobar did. I give credit for members of his family to be proactive in talking about Escobar. As with many historical figures, there's a division on how one views Escobar - either he's great or he was a scourge. Either way, I believe we need to embrace our history in order to learn from it.
  • This was a cool experience. They might have put too much emphasis on how great PE was and how much money he had as well. There was no mention of the people who died at the hands of his cartel. It felt a little anti-american at times. Overall a good experience and worth the trek up the hill.
