Know More about this tour

Cartagena is an important historical city, as its port marks the historical entry point for Spanish conquers into South America. Its fortifications, built for the protection against invasion, still stand strong in the walled city today. The colonial architecture seen in houses, government buildings and churches aided in its 1984 designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Enjoy a guided sightseeing tour and learn about Cartagena's famous past. Your guide will inform you about everything from the economic activity in 4000 BC to the current- day living standards. Learn about the traditions and culture of one of Colombia's most fascinating cities.

Your guided tour takes you through the historic center of Cartagena. Take photos of the famous clock tower (Torre del Reloj) before continuing on to Plaza de la Aduana, a place where hundreds of years ago, slaves were traded in an open market. Then, head over to the Cathedral of Cartagena before ending up at Plaza de Bolivar, home to the Gold Museum (optional visit available), Inquisition Palace and the Theater of Heredia (time permitting).

Then, visit Castillo San Felipe (San Felipe Castle). Located on the Hill of San Lzaro, this fortress was built by the Spanish in the 1600s. Admire breathtaking views of Cartagena and the sea from atop the hill. Learn about the castle's history as you take a guided tour through the fortress.

Afterwards, travel over to the Bvedas district, an area known for its craft stores and art galleries. Spend some time browsing the local shops before heading back to your hotel.
