Fantastic Service
Feb 2020 • Couples
My wife and I had difficulty finding a tour that was wheel chair accessible, but eventually found this one.

There were 10 of us in a small group. Our guide, Nico, was very experienced and the tour covered all of the important sights.

Several of the sights were not 100% wheel chair accessible, but Nico managed to get us into them. The other guests were very understanding and assisted Nico getting us through some tough spots.

Confusing Start - average Guide
We arrived on Windstar’s Star Pride at 8:00 AM. Booked this tour because of Trip Advisor reviews. Booking said start was 7:45 AM. Emailed them 3 times before we left home to ask what would our start time be. No answer. After our arrival we made our way to cruise terminal and a lady had our name on a board. Was told to wait in the park. We did for over 75 minutes until met with guide. She was average at best. Took us to an emerald shop then the fortress then old town walk. We dropped out and walked around on our own. Would not recommend this company

Good tour but poor start
Dec 2019 • Friends
The actual tour was fine. However, the start was terrible. Our cruise ship docked at 8 am. It turned out another ship docked at 8:30 and another at about 9 am. Our tour was scheduled to start when we got off our ship, about 8:15. We were met and saw our names on their list. We were about the first people off our boat, so we were very surprised when they told us our tour had already left at 7:45 (!!), which seemed impossible since we were the first off the first boat, which had docked at 8. They told us to walk a quarter of a mile down to a park where we could wait in 95 degree heat. There was a gift shop and Zoo. But they That's super fly fly. We waited for 45 minutes, didn't see any new arrivals. We walked the quarter of a mile back to ask them what was going on. They said they were just waiting for more people off our boat. I asked specifically if they were waiting for people from the later cruise ships and they said no. That was a lie. Eventually we had waited about two hours, when people from all the other cruise ships arrived. And we went on the tour. I think this was deceptive practice, where they wanted to collect all the people from all the ships for a single tour, but didn't want to tell us that we had to wait 2 hours. We could have spent time doing something else for those two hours, instead of just sitting around.

Cartagena From The Walls Tour
Nov 2019
We booked a tour (Order # 996670) Cartagena From The Walls on November 27th. We and the others on our tour, had great difficulty in finding the meeting place in the port because our ship provided buses to take us to the park (at the port entrance) and completely passed our pick up point. I would recommend changing your meeting place to the duty free shop. Other than that the tour was great and we enjoyed this wonderful city.

Lots of History - Wish there were less Peddlers
Nov 2019
This city has so much history to offer. Our tour guide did a good job telling us about the amazing history behind all the religious sites and the city overall. Highlights for me were the religious sites. I give it an overall 3 stars only due to the fact that there were so many peddlers at every stop we made and the tour brought us to three separate shops to buy jewelry and goods. Too many for me and I could not enjoy the trip seeing so many people struggling to make a living. The stop at the fort was so short. We were not able to go to the top of the fort. There were so many peddlers of trinkets there that we hesitated to get off the bus, but did for a quick picture. If you can stand staying no thank you every time you walk past someone, then take this tour.

Good Tour
This shore excursion tour was as advertised with a good guide, Nico. Expect lots of walking to get the most out of this tour. Although the pace was fast, we saw and experienced quite a bit in this very diverse city. The views from the Monastery were spectacular. The Emerald Museum was very interesting - and, of course, there was an opportunity to purchase something at the end, but there was no pressure as is sometimes found in these kind of stops.

Two hour two of Cartagena for cruise ship passengers
Nov 2019 • Couples
Four of us walked off our cruise ship and were met by staff who took us to our tour bus. Only eight of us were on the tour. Our tour guide Al was very informed and sensitive to our interests. We enjoyed his information and all the sights we saw. The only negative was that the tour description said we would be on the air-conditioned bus with no walking. On couple on the bus was not able to walk so waited a half hour or so for the rest of us to walk around. It was very hot and humid so we would have been happy to avoid the walking and to stay with the couple.

Benny Tour Guide knowledge and passion
Oct 2019
His name is not Benny, but he was called that once and this name is now this great asset. This gentleman possesses great knowledge, street smart, and a passion that you get to feel right away. Benny spoke just about the entire time, that is a rarity. He would point out historical sites, events surrounding a certain area, political, sporting event, cultural event or anything else. Benny would know about it in great detail. We visited beautiful churches, going back to hundreds of years ago. He took us to the highest point in the city, for a breath taking view of the city and its surroundings. We saw the wall and the old city, all the houses there are well maintained, painted or have historical plaques explaining the events that took place back then. We then visited modern Cartagena and saw an incredible contrast of this international growing city. It is too bad that we didn't have more time with Benny, because I assure you that you would see a whole lot more. If I have the opportunity again, I will specifically request this living encyclopedia for my next trip. Thank you Benny we certainly learned a ton more about this historical and amazing place in Colombia.

Beautiful Architecture

The colors, the cobblestone streets and the old town are worth the tour. The constant crowds that follow up around to offer their wares to be purchased are annoying and very tiring!

Fantastic!
This place is so rich with history and is so interesting. Our guide was really good at explaining and exploring it’s past history and how it is now. There is a museum that focuses on the Spanish Inquisition. We were fascinated and wish we had more time to see all that is offered I. This fabulous place It is a wonderful tour and I highly recommend it!
