Loved our guide. He was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Old City was so charming - exceeded our expectations.
The tour guide was excellent. My wife & I were the only ones. We had requested to our guide that we wanted mingle & meet some of the local people. The walking part of the tour was superb in that aspect.

This was an excellent tour. Our guide Sammy was great, knowledgeable and cool. The bus was very comfortable, our driver was very capable, driving through the narrow streets. Sammy knew everyone, all the street vendors and took good care of us. We saw a lot of the old and new cities. We visited all the areas identified in the excursion info. Would definitely recommend this tour. But ask for Sammy!

Cartagena City Tour 27 January 2019 I decided to book this tour through Shore Excursion Group instead of through the cruise line. This allowed us to be in a much smaller group. Our tour guide was “Benni” who was a great guide with a very strong voice. Benni helped some in our group make emerald purchases getting them maybe a 30% discount. We toured the San Pedro Church inside which has some original wall built by the Spanish in the 1500’s. Seeing the Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas Fort (largest fort built in the Caribbean) was nice especially with the local people in their native dress.
