    Guiados por Durán Durán Tours hemos realizado una extraordinaria visita por los principales sitios históricos de Cartagena: Fortaleza de San Felipe de Barajas, Convento de la Popa y una magnífica caminata por la ciudad amurallada, deteniéndonos en cada punto importante para recibir de nuestro guía una completísima e interesante explicación del lugar.

    The History & Street Food tour with Durán Angel Eduardo was, hands-down, the best tour we’ve had in Colombia so far. It was a private tour that we will cherish in our memories for years to a come. Angel is very passionate about the city and its culture; a passion that has not dulled at all despite 3+ decades of experience guiding newcomers and re-visitors alike. His passion is not only noticed by us, but also the locals who openly greet him throughout the tour. His enthusiasm shines through with every topic that he talks about, from Cartagena’s beginnings to current day, which made learning about Cartagena’s history a lot of fun, rather than a dull lecture. Angel is the epitome of Cartagena’s warmth and hospitality—he is extremely friendly and kept us engaged, laughing, and safe throughout the entirety of the tour. Angel even made sure that we had a chance to try a street food that was not originally a part of the tour, all because we had asked about it. We enjoyed this tour with Angel so much that, when we return to Cartagena in the future, we would make it a mission to re-experience this or another tour with Angel again. If a tour with good people and fun history over delicious food sounds like something you’d enjoy, make sure you book with Angel at Duran Duran!

    Mr. Duran was absolutely phenomenal as a tour guide. For historical knowledge, he navigate us through the key sites and taught me and my daughter some incredible lessons on the history of Cartagena. He is a kind and very nice man. Has English is absolutely perfect. I highly recommend this tour if you love history and appreciate a great tour guide. Thank you, Señor Duran, see you next time!

    Senor Duran was a great guide. For about 3 hours he took us to a variety of sites around Cartagena in the old city and Getsemani, explaining the history, architecture and characters that shaped the city. Very informative, took time to make sure his guests were comfortable. We did stop at an emerald workshop which I wouldn’t normally like because it’s obviously a way to make a bit of extra commission, but it was fast, not pushy and a nice break to have some air conditioning and coffee. Would recommend the tour.

    We loved our walking tour with Angel Duran. I always like to understand the history of places we visit and Mr. Duran was exactly the tour guide we needed. So many interesting stories and our teen daughter was very engaged as well. Cartagena is a stunning city stacked with history, art, architecture and flowers everywhere. Duran Duran tours came to our hotel to pick us up and gave us a great intro to the area so we feel confident now to explore more of the city.
