What you'll do

Join me on this "mind-blowing" story, whether you're a group of friends, gathered family or a single person!!

We'll go through Colombia's complex history, a country where reality exceeds fiction, you don't need to know who Pablo Escobar was, just need a genuine desire of learning and a curiosity for meeting different cultures.

We're not only going to talk about drug dealers, guns and money, its much more complicated than that, but I'll present the story in a way that will keep you glued to your screen!

You can lay back and absorb what I'm telling you or you can participate as much as you want, it's up to you.

I'm going to take you through the fascinating history of Colombia, from guerrillas and their fight for communism to the paramilitary's defending Colombia, corrupted politics, the displacements and gangs, its perfect biodiversity, but more important, how Pablo seize the moment and took advantage of all this together.

We'll virtually visit the beautiful city that saw Escobar become the most wanted man in the world, places where there was lots of history and will help us understand why all of this craziness happened.

Feel free to join with someone else on the same device booking only 1 spot.

If you're a group of friends or family and can't find an hour 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.
