Wonderful tour and fantastic tour guide. He included a tour of the historic fortress and beautiful walking tour of old town’s wonderful balconies. We also had a small break to go into a cathedral. The emerald tour was informative and interesting. We did not purchase but several in our group did

Great tour. Walter our guide was excellent. Just 6 people in a van not a bus of 50. He asked how we would like to do things and always asked for suggestions (like if we wanted to walk part of the tour) My wife loves emeralds and made a purchase at the last stop.

We had a great time with our guide Walter. Only six people not a bus with 50 people. He asked us how we would like to see things and if we wanted to walk some of the time rather than ride. Very informative and the shopping at the the Emerald museum store could not have been better with Maria.

This was a very good tour. We were surprised that it was just the two of us on the tour.Niba was very knowledgeable and attentive to our needs. We saw and learned much about the city and it's people.The only thing is we never saw or heard about an emerald museum, only stopped at an emerald store. Not sure if we misunderstood the description.

Loved this tour that started with a driving tour of the older section of Cartagena - amazing architecture! We completed our tour at the Emerald Museum where we learned the history of emerald mining. There are beautiful emeralds in their natural formation at the museum to see, as well as beautiful emerald jewelry to purchase that is made right on site.
