San Felipe de Barajas Castle

Cartagena’s strategic significance as Europe’s conquest of the Americas intensified cannot be overstated. Some say that if the British had won the 1741 Battle of Cartagena, that South America would now speak English. They didn’t, largely because of ...

This was a very good tour. Our guide, Martin, spoke excellent English and drove us in a private clean air conditioned car to many sights. Overall a good experience.

The problem was that there seemed to be only one bus and it was a long time before the bus came around again. Hop-on, Hop-off buses work best if a bus comes around on a more frequent basis so that you can truly hop-on and hop-off several times in a day. We just took the bus around for one complete loop because if we stopped for a short visit at any of the stops, it would be a long time before it comes around again.
The Hop-on, Hop-off was not well advertised nor did it seem to get any promotion in the city of Cartagena. There was an information kiosk at the cruise terminal, but no one was there to man it. The other people in other kiosks did not seem to know anything about it or were reluctant to give any information. We ended up taking a cab to the Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas where they seemed to know a little more about it. I probably wouldn't use it again as it is not a true hop-on, hop-off because of the limited schedule.

We got off the ship and the hop on hop off bus offered a tour for $20 each. We wanted all the stops so we took the taxi to the Ft. San Felipe. The taxi cost $15 per person... $30. Then the hop on hop off bus did not come for and hour and a half. We ended up meeting the same bus that offered the tour for $20 and they accepted our prepaid cost of $25 each. So it wasn't such a good deal if you are coming off a ship. Our ship day had 3 ships in port. The tour was better because they explained things and took us to the old city. It was 90 degrees and 95% humidity. VERY HOT. You needed the cool bus.

Easy and convenient way to see the city in a small-group, personalized tour. Guide was knowledgeable and explained all about the history of the city. Fantastic day out!
