We purchased this tour because our cruise ship did not offer the opportunity to go up the highest point in Cartagena which was La Popa Monastery. Our guide, Willis, blurted out a list of things we were going to do, so we accepted and trusted him. He took us to the fort, but we were not allowed to walk up the trail. The stop after that was shop 4 where he dropped us off and we spent about 40 minutes walking around in these shops. I spoke to Willis on the side, telling him that I was not interested in shopping. I asked him to stay close to the itinerary. We were a party of seven people who were more interested in exploring the city as none of us had ever been there. Willis took us to the Gold Museum, then we were given a tour of the Emerald mine which was really a jewelry store. I was getting quite upset at this time. Then he took us to another museum that was not on our list, and we saw a dance and was expected to tip the dancers. We walked along the old city, and when it was past noon, I asked him when were we going to La Popa? He said La Popa was not on the itinerary. He got mad at me and said I could talk to his boss if I wanted. I asked him what would it take for him to take us to the highest point? He said he would not take us there because that was not part of the plan. I said it was. He said, Why didn't I say something when he listed all the places we were going to go? I said, because we trusted you. He said La Popa was closed off to the public due to erosion. None of us were informed of this. When we talked to the local workers, they confirmed that the roads were eroded. They said that tour buses parked a the bottom and had people walk to the top of the monastery. We were not informed or given that choice. Had we known this, we would have booked through our cruise line. We felt that we were not informed. In addition to that, Willis was more concerned at trying to get us to buy stuff took us places we did not want and exchanged La Popa for some museum without telling us the truth. This was not a good tour and we were sorry we booked this.
