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.

Barry the Baritone was our tour guide. He was an interesting character. We enjoyed the views and his knowledge of where we visited. The tour bus was very comfortable.

I went on this tour solo and was very impressed with the guide and with the tour of the walled city. The guide stayed with us and I felt very safe. We had a small group and that made it more personable.
