The tour guide and bus driver were kind and courteous. And I enjoyed the tour. Thankful for the many places to sit on the tour as the heat was ,as Canadians , we do not have those temperatures....the bottled water was a bonus.

Our guide, Walter, did a wonderful job of touring us around Cartegena! We were on a tight time line with only 6 hours in port, but he was very accommodating to make sure we were back at the cruise ship on time and also did a good job of accommodating the varied mobility levels of the group without slowing things down too much. In the short time frame he managed to show us the highlights, our favorite being the walk thru the old town! It is a beautiful city and he was a wealth of information on any topic you could come up with! The only downside was the traffic jam trying to get out of the port with several ships docked that morning!

This was a perfect tour for four persons in a van and we appreciate the fact of very small group of persons. The guide was a very nice person with the knowledge of his town in history. I definitely recommend this tour in Cartagena

The tour guide and driver were excellent. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the area and very polite. We spent very little time shopping which allowed us to see more of the city. I would recommend this tour to anyone in Cartagena.
