walking tour of walled city
January 01, 2020
This was my favorite excursion of the entire cruise. We had a guide who took us took to remote areas even to the top of the catherel There were only 3 on the tour so we were able to avoid the crowds with shopping the the tour areas. Do be afraid ot hte traffic and crowd. Catergenia is the worst for crowds.

Excellent cultural guide

On the day of our tour, there was a nation-wide civil protest in Colombia. Our guide gave everyone the option to cancel, with full refund. Everyone opted to take the tour. Our guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable, but he also maintained constant radio contact with his company and rearranged the route of his walking tour to ensure that we did not get caught up in any of the hubbub of the demonstrations. We felt fully secure at all times, and received an in-depth overview of the cultural history of Cartagena from a delightful young man.

Did not know what to expect. Guide was professional and helpful. The hand artwork stop on the street was wonderful. I wish I bought a couple. He completed a painting literally with his hand in a couple of minutes. Beautiful! Wished we were not so rushed in the 2 jewelry stores though.

a private tour

We had a private tour with a guide who was very informative. Not sure if no one else was interested or all their tours are private. Lots of history within the walled city. Wonderful walk through the city, very professional.

Wonderful tour
December 18, 2018
This was my first time purchasing a shore excursion from a vendor other than from the ship. This tour exceeded all expectations. It was easy to find our guide after we exited the ship, and as it turned out, no other people purchased this tour and we had a private tour. Londono was our tour guide and he was wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Cartagena and would recommend this tour and Shore Excursions Group to anyone.

Columbia - Cartagene

We were greeted with a smile and the Guide & driver were excellent on the service and explaining the history of the City. Amazing culture and location. We were also introduced to tasting the local coffee on the Piazza and the gentleman was nice to explain a bit about his family & working experience. Thank you for the great service & excursion.
