About
Carlos the expolice officer, has been a witness of all the terrible actions the cartel caused to probably thousands of victims. He´s still alive, and good thing he is nowadays a happy resident of Medellin while offering tours exclusively for Medellin City Services and Medellin City Tours. Do not miss this opportunity to learn closer about narcos and the overall conflict from a police man point of view.  Go ahead and schedule a private tour with Carlos the excop and learn closer about the mafia and its impacts in Colombia from a victim´s point of view. This tour will provide a great learning experience as to what should NOT happen in society and which characters should be the real heroes. Tour focuses on the victims by telling stories of those who suffer most, like police officers and government officials. Since there is no glorification, at the end you will understand how resilient the people from Medellin have been. In fact, it is the most innovative city.

-Carlos's hospitality and knowledge of his home country is unimaginable. He is very knowledgeable, reliable, prompt and most of all he makes you feel safe and comfortable. I have visited Columbia 2x. There is no other individual who I trust to ta show me around the beautiful City of Medellin. I look forward to seeing you in December my friend, my brother from another mother. Thank you for inviting me into your home and getting to know your family, you are truly blessed. Stay Humble my friend!

Dear Carlos, Thanks so much, your feedback means all to us. So glad you have noticed the difference when exclusively having a cop who was in the SWAT team against narcos. Only at Medellin City Services. Please come back soon! Camilo Uribe Medellin City Services

We only had a day in Medellin and decided what better way to spend it than a private tour of Pablo Escobar's spots with an ex cop! Carlos was great and extremely friendly! He told us about his life during the drug war in Colombia. How interesting to hear about it from someone who was so involved and lost many of his cop friends during the time. Highly recommend the tour!

Dear Yevgeniya, Thanks a lot for your comment, it is quite valuable for us. So good to hear you highly recommend us since we are the only company who offers an authentic tour with someone who was really involved in those dark days by losing so many cop friends. We´ll be glad to see you again soon, please keep us posted. Sincerely, Camilo Uribe Medellin City Services

Carlos was extremely helpful, his stories of being in the police force are almost more interesting than the Pablo facts. He was very engaging and seemed to be a bit of a local legend, high fiveing and chatting to most of the locals. I initially thought the tour was a bit pricey but at the end felt it was worth every penny. A must do in Medellin!

We had a group of 14 of us booked for a private day tour of all of the sites of importance to Pablo Escobar in Medellin. Carlos was exceptional, hearing his stories and his point of view was eye opening and made the trip that much better. Amazing service, best money spent in Medellin!

We originally booked the Pablo Escobar tour and then emailed the company to see if we could combine it with a city tour - they got back to us quickly and let us tailor it which was brilliant.

Carlos was a brilliant guide; his knowledge is phenomenal and the sharing of his own personal experiences made this day unique and way beyond what we expected. Carlos was on time, the car was clean and his driving is superb. Carlos also took photos of us when we weren't looking and later sent them via WhatsApp to give us even more memories which was incredibly kind. He also sent us links to other information about the city and Pablo Escobar and shared historical photos as well. Can't recommend Carlos highly enough!

What an experience! You could discover many stories about Medellin and its life under the Escobar dominate. Carlos is the best guide that I ever heard in my life. He's a wonderful storytelling: you can see in his eyes all that he could tell about that sad Medellin period. He was a great policeman and he lived many sad stories but he's proud to tell us that cruel stories. Greatest experience in Medellin!
