    Our tour guide was a nice young lady. The amount of history you learn was awesome. Make sure you have your walking shoes on it is by far the most walking we have done since we arrived in Cartagena.

    We had a lovely time with a guide that found shade on a blistering hot day. The architecture was amazing. She was knowledgeable and helped us navigate the mazes of street vendors, often negotiating for better prices when we did want to purchase something. We wanted to see churches and we got into several. Thank you for a wonderful morning in Cartagena.

    This was a great tour and Sam was an amazing tour guide. He was full of interesting information, his English was perfect, and he was funny. I was traveling with 4 young adults (ages 20-22) and they were highly engaged the entire time. We saw so many beautiful parts of the old walled city. I highly recommend this tour!

    Our walking tour was informative. Our guide was friendly and very helpful in sharing information about the historic area. We toured in the morning and it still got quite hot. Afternoon may have been unbearable.

    My guide Carlos (Charles) was friendly, knowledgeable, and considerate. As we rode between sites he told about events that occurred along the route, and Milna (?) would slow down or stop as was appropriate, they worked together very well. At the sites where we stopped he was never hurried, Vern informed, and always answered any questions. Even though this was not my first visit to Cartagena, he pointed out countless things I had not noticed before. A very relaxed tour. He even offered to help me plan another excursion!

    This is an amazing city, colorful and full of history. Each part has a different story and they are all interesting. Our guide was Toti, our tour operator was Cartagena Travels, excellent service; everything was great.

    Cartagena é a expressão máxima da história da colonização espanhola, cultura local e palco de grandes acontecimentos históricos que envolveram batalhas e conquistas.

    El recorrido por la Ciudad amurallada de Cartagena es realmente hermoso, sus calles y su arquitectura son espectaculares, es como un viaje en el tiempo en la época de los piratas, sin duda un lugar romántico, con grandes paisajes y plazas, tal vez faltan mejores servicios y restaurantes donde pasar el rato,pero es muy bella. no olvides una caminata por la parte alta de la muralla.
