What you'll do

This experience is great for corporate teams, families, date nights, individuals and birthday reunions!

It's not the average boring history class, we're not just going to talk about drug dealers, guns and money, its more complicated than that. I'll present the story in a way that will keep you glued to your screen! You can lay back and absorb or you can ask as many questions as you'd like.

Colombia is an extraordinary, beautiful and diverse country, unfortunately known for its dark past, a country where reality exceeds fiction, locals have named it the "Magical Realism" and to really understand our history, we'll study every aspect of Colombia as a whole: its nature, geography, regions, cultures, believes, politics and some personal stories.

We'll virtually visit the beautiful city that saw Pablo Escobar become the most wanted man in the world, full with breathtaking landscapes, lush green nature and giant mountains, places that will help us understand why all of this craziness happened.

This experience is great for team-building. Book a private tour for your group, If can't find a time that suits you let me know!

I love what I do! I love Colombia as a whole, the diversity in every aspect, the different climates, landscapes, geography, cultures, ethnicities and the amazing and crazy history that "blows" everybody's mind.

I am professional guide with over 10 years of experience in the city of Medellín and the Department of Antioquia, the region I live, the city I love and the culture I feel absolute passion for. I was doing tours every day before this crazy pandemic, but now technology has showed us the way. Fluent in english since I live a big part of my childhood in United States and built a unique point of view being grown with both cultures.

This was a great experience. I had never thought of traveling to Columbia, but after listening to Fernando and seeing the beauty of Columbia, it makes me want to go visit it. If you like history, this is a great experience to learn more about what really happened within Columbia.

I am FLOORED by how thorough and gripping this experience was! I feel like most people are only aware of the sensationalized image of Pablo Escobar, but on this tour I learned actual history as well as learned about the social and economic facets that gave rise to Narco culture. I learned about the geography of the nation as well, and the hope that Colombians have for their futures. I took this 'tour' two days ago and still cannot stop talking about it to people!

Is it possible to give more than 5 stars? Soooo thoughtful, warm and brilliant story-telling by Fernando including through his personal experiences to living through the changed and changing Colombia! We learnt more here than when we visited Medellin! Was also beautiful because we had an excuse to see faces of our friends we hadn't in over 6 months. And they loved it too!

I joined the tour upon the invitation of my good friend. I am glad I did as I could forget for 90 minutes that we are in a pandemic and I cannot go to Medellín. It’s a great way to learn about Colombia through the story of Pablo Escobar. I enjoyed knowing that the world awaits us still, despite our inability to travel now.

Great one. Not just about Escobar. It was great how Fernando incorporated the salaciousness of the Escobar story with the transformation of politics, culture and socio-economic issues. Good use of photos to give perspective. Very informative & interactive.
