Tour Details

Cartagena is a stunningly gorgeous port-city on Colombia's Caribbean coast, labeled a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its uncanny beauty. This Cartagena tour takes you on a comfortable air-conditioned ride to see the city's most outstanding destinations, like Manga Island and Castillo San Felipe de Barajas. This tour is ideal for newcomers to Cartagena, photographers, and anyone looking for a rich cultural experience for a low price.

Your guided tour starts on Manga Island, a luxurious residential area with Republican-style architecture. Move on to the Castillo San Felipe de Barajas (named after Saint Philip IV), a striking sixteenth-century fortress atop a lush hill. From here, you'll see panoramic vistas of Cartagena.

Next, your guide will drive you through the renovated areas of Cartagena on your way to its famous Walled City. This is Cartagena's "old town," a gem of colonial architecture loaded with picturesque monasteries, churches, plazas, palaces, and mansions. You'll have about forty minutes here to take a leisurely stroll, savoring the architectural details, shops, and local cuisine before returning to your port.

Reviewer: Marcia Holsinger
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.

Benny was phenomenal and very comical. Extremely knowledgable of Columbia's history. His pride was very evident. He went out of his way to ensure we had a great tour. Loved the old history and architecture. I would love to revisit Cartegena. Definitely would look up Benny 😊
