The tour host "Benny" was excellent and gave a lot of history of the City. Told us where to buy and where not to buy. Good bus driver, also. Enjoyed this tour very much and learned of the history of Cartagena. The only thing I have a complaint about is where we were to meet when we got off the boat. The tour operators where hard to find and when we found them, we were instructed to walk the length of the pier and go behind a white building, but there was no one behind the white building. It was very confusing. They should of had a flag held up to identify the tour. Not a good way to start a tour.

Our tour guide's name was Benny, he gave us the best tour I have ever been on. We arrived in Cartagena by cruise ship and this tour was half the price of the ship,s excursion and covered more. Benny was very knowledgeable, he spoke Loud and clearly, never at a loss for words, he is a true professional. It as a small group about 12 of us, we had a clean bus, with AC. I highly recommend this tour and if you are lucky you will have Benny as your guide.

Our tour was wonderful thanks to our tour guide Benny! We visited the old and new city, we toured the monestary and the old fort and we learned a lot about Cartagena, both old and recent history. Benny was so knowledgeable about everything. He answered all of our questions and he gave us guidance on where to shop for different items and where to avoid. We felt very safe throughout the entire tour!

The meeting location was fun with the tropical birds. The tour guide was humorous and knowledgeable. It's a must to see the beautiful architecture in the old town but bus traffic from tourists like me made it time consuming to get there and back. The reality of only a few hours in port. The street dancers were great!
