Your Cartagena tour starts with pickup from the pier. You'll ride on an air-conditioned vehicle en route to your destination: the Old City. Here, you'll hop on your carriage and embark on a 45-minute journey around the area. As you tour the neighborhood, you'll lay eyes on charming colonial structures like churches and mansions.
The final stop on your tour is Las Bovedas, which translates to The Vaults. Here, you can spend about 30 minutes purchasing handcrafts and other goods from the numerous vendors. Before this locale was a market, it was a dungeon. The cells were used to imprison people during the 19th century civil wars; they were also used as storage for ammunition.
After your time here, you will be taken back to the pier on a bus. Bottled water included on this trip.
This was the best excursion we had. The guide was very knowledgeable, and u derstandable. There was time to see things, time to go through the shops in the dungeon and it was very personal, with just the two of us all the way.

Richard did an excellent job of organizing and running the tour. He did a great job of telling the history of his county and the reasons for the various structures. All in all a very interesting tour, the best of our trip.

Going through the old city by carriage was amazing. A small amount of time at the shops and tour guide was able to get us free wifi to post our pictures. Thank you !!!

This was an amazing tour! First they drove us around Cartagena in an air conditioned SUV, which included a stop at the large fort. Then we got on the carriage to take a tour through the old city! Benny, our tour guide did an exceptional job! His 42-years of experience as a guide made the excursion one of our most memorable ever!!
It is a must tour
