Tour Details

Cartagena is by far one of the most breathtaking areas in Colombia. Located on the coast of the Caribbean, the views are quite spectacular. This two hour bus tour gives you the flexibility to kick back and enjoy the sites or hop on and off at each highlighted landmark. Listen to an informative audio commentary as you stop at each spot. Everything from beautiful architecture to magnificent monuments are included during this trip around the city.

Climb aboard the bus and be driven around the Spanish colonial port of Cartagena with its medieval palaces, monasteries, plazas, and unique overhanging balconies. Each area has an interesting story behind it, and you will have the choice of staying on the bus to hear the commentary or hopping off to explore on your own. When your sightseeing is complete at any of the stops, another bus will arrive within 40 minutes to pick you up.

Make sure you hop off at the Bodeguita Pier stop to enjoy a fully-guided, 90-minute walking tour of the Walled City. Enjoy sights of the Clock Tower, Santo Domingo Square, Plaza de la Aduana, Inquisition Palace, and more up close as you learn from a professional and bilingual tour guide. This walking tour is included in your hop on / hop off bus tour. Please consult a representative for more information on tour times.

The bus will take you around the entire loop so you get to see the city's fortress walls, brightly colored buildings, and impressive monuments. The Simon Bolivar statue, a testament to the Spanish Heroes of Cavite and Santiago de Cuba, The San Felipe de Barajas Castle, and several other fascinating monuments are all stops on this two hour ride that you will not want to miss!

Unfortunately, my husband was not feeling well that day, so we were unable to take advantage of our purchase. Since I must click on a rating to enter this and have no experience, I will just call it 4 Stars.
