This tour was excellent. The van was very comfortable and air conditioned. Our tour guide, Indira, was very knowledgeable, outgoing, and engaged. She had lots of tidbits of information and interacted so well with everyone. I would recommend this tour company.

The gentleman who showed us around was fantastic. He knew a lot of history and walked us through shopping areas, historical spots, and the old residential areas of Cartagena. He helped find specific items you might be looking for and took us to see artists and street performers. If anything, it would have been great to have more time with him in the old city.

We had a great tour guide. I really enjoyed our walk through the old city. Would have rather skip the stop at the wall and the jewelry store. Felt that was a total waste of time.
We were net at the dock by our guide Andy and learned that we would be having a "private tour". Andy was a great guide and very knowledgeable of the history of Cartagena. I highly recommend using Shore Excursions, we had a wonderful experience!
