My 2nd visit to wonderful Cartagena. Always stay in historic old city. This time wanted to see more so chose this tour and we were very glad we did. It was a terrific way to see the city. We enjoyed the views from the top level and were very pleased that the narrative was provided via personal earplugs in the language of choice. It was easy to hear and very informative. I would do again.

We really enjoyed the bus, as we have in many other cities around the world. The only difficulty, was finding where to be picked up from the ship we were on. Fortunately, the shore excursions people had arranged the same trip from the ship at a much higher price and we just tagged along.

Booked the tour of Cartegena online easy process. Getting bus on the Port in Cartegena not so easy. Too many passengers for available seats. Long wait wasted time given short cruise stop over. HOHO booth easy to locate but HOHO officials at Port not as easy to locate. Eventual tour was comforable and worth the price paid a better deal (except for the wait") than the price charged by the cruise line. Would do again but would organise to come off Cruise early to get the first bus out. Recommend HOHO get more buses based on bookings and issue tickets with start times to manage loads..

Not very good if you are on a cruise ship,not regular enough,good once you are on but you can not hop on hop off,too long before the next one comes along.

We booked this tour online ourselves, instead of through the cruise line. The cost was about the same, however, booking online allowed us for more time on the tour than it would have if we had book through cruise line. We walked to the nearest stop on the tour, which was not so easy to find, even though we had a map to look at. We had to ask for directions a couple times. When we made it the the stop we checked the bus schedule that was posted there and were relieved to see that the bus should be coming in about 7 minutes. So we waited. We waited over 30 minutes past the time that was posted on the schedule and gave up. We started walking, heading toward the town and towards another bus stop on the tour. After about 15 minutes we saw the tour bus and were able to wave it down. By this time we are very hot and not very happy! We were able to board the bus. The next stop for this bus was at the very spot we had just spent almost 40 minutes waiting at! The tour we were able to experience was ok. We had headphones and were able to listen to the narration along the tour. We stayed on the bus until tour was over. At each stop, the narration told us we could get off and the bus would be by in 40 minutes to pick us up again. We were afraid to get off, not being optimistic that we would actually get picked up again! So we stayed on the tour bus til the end, even though we would have liked to exit it at least once to tour one of the sites. We were very disappointed in the tour because of the bus not being on time that was posted on their schedule. The tour itself was fine.

First: There was no representative when we disembarked the ship and no sign of a bus. After waiting a long time, we got on another bus ($20). At the first picture stop we found a hop-on hop-off tour bus and consulted the on-board guide. She said we were on the right bus and took our vouchers. We went through 5 or 6 stops and she directed to get off at stop #2 in order to get back to the ship. We walked about 2 miles and got a taxi for the rest of the trip to the ship. She said the bus did not go to the ship. Upon arrival at the ship there was our tour bus.

This was the first disaster that I've had with Viator. All previous experiences were terrific but not this one. Simply stated, the bus was nowhere in sight on both days that I booked. No one knew/saw/or heard of this bus........and I speak both English and Spanish.
