My mom and I had a private tour. Host was very informative of the history. We visited amazing spots on some amazing streets. He was very patient while we took tons of pictures and if we had to sit down from being tired of walking. Nico is the name of our tour Guide. He also spoke very good English so it was easy to understand .

BEST TOUR COMPANY IN CARTAGENA
Philip_L
, May 2021
I have been on LOTS of TOURS is countries around the world and I can say without reservation, this tour IS THE BEST HANDS DOWN!! Everything was explained in detail and there was NEVER any rush during the tour or at the locations we stopped. Because of COVID, they did a private tour with just me and my wife for the same price as the group price, GREAT COMPANY!! If you are going to do a city tour in Cartagena, you want this to be the one for sure!! I wanted to buy an emerald ring for my wife and the driver took us to a store that was very knowledgeable, PROFESSIONAL, not a stall location rather, a professional jewelry store where I bought a ring for less than half of what it would cost in the USA, yes I had it appraised in the USA at a VERY high end jeweler when we returned and the jeweler could not believe I paid what I did!! Also, don't forget to Negotiate the prices as, if you really are interested in purchasing something, they will work with you, within reason, and you get the same guarantees and paperwork that you would in the country you.may be from. OVERALL, TOTALLY GREAT TOUR COMPANY AND DRIVER, Nicomede Vergara Melendez!! We would only use this company and you want driver Nicomedes if he is available, TEN STARS!!

Terrible - avoid
Philip_R
, Mar 2020
Avoid like the plague. The worst tour we have ever been on. Pick up was 40 mins late then there was further confusion because the guide had the wrong names even though we had reconfirmed the day before. There was no apology. There was an extra staff member. No idea who she was. She was miserable and thrust a bottle of water in our hands without speaking. Later we picked up another member of staff. No idea why. The main purpose of the tour was the walking tour of the beautiful squares. This never happened - I presume because it got too dark because it had started so late. At one stage the guide picked up his wife and son to take home. It was more like being on a shared taxi service. How to imagine how it could have been any worse.
