Tour was good, Benny was great, we would have preferred a tour of the fort over the emerald shopping but we had a very enjoyable day.

This was the best shore excursion of the whole 19 day cruise. Our tour guild Bennie was so knowledgeable since he lived in the area. He pointed out the good and even some of the not so good areas. We were in Cartagena in 2001 and Wow what a difference the years have made. On any future cruises I will check first here before booking any excursions with the cruiseline.
Great tour and knowledgeable guide. He knew a lot about the area and took us to very interesting spots.
We enjoyed this tour immensely. We learned a lot about the City, Country and people. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and interesting. We have been to Cartagena before and not too interested in returning. After this tour, we would happily return.

This was a 12-person van which was much better and cheaper than the cruise line's larger bus. It stopped at the same stops, so you didn't miss anything. Tour guide was knowledgeable and considerate.
