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.

Reviewer: Jane Ingram
This tour was very well organized. Was met by tour rep and guided to the mini-van. One driver and one tour guide for the four of us. Spoke good English and was very knowledgeable. 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 !!! A tour of the city and then back to the ship. Highly recommend this tour. Felt safe and well looked after.

Reviewer: Donna Rogers
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!!

This was a great way to see the old city. It was very hot but they provided bottled water for us. The van was air conditioned which was a huge plus. The only down side was they led us to a store and then just left us there in that 1 store for 20 minutes. It would have been nice to have longer to walk through many shops.
