Frequently Asked Questions

    • Would it be fine to fly from Salento to Medellín instead of taking the bus?

      G adventures confirmed that it is totally fine, so long as you understood you would need to make your own way to and from the airports.

    • Does this tour include a trip to Escobars self made prison?

      The prison is not included in this itinerary.

      However, it looks like La Catedral is about an hour away from the city of Medellin. You will have one full free day here, so if there also others who want to visit it, you would be able to organise this with the CEO right there.

    • Are flights included in this trip?

      Please note that the tour does not included flights. Refer to the 'What's Included' Section of this tour to see what is and isn't covered in the tour price.
