My husband and I had William as our tour guide. William has good english and is great at giving the background to the city. Touring with him felt like the Mayor of Cartagena. Everyone knew him and he even helped negotiate for us when they were trying to over charge us for souveinirs. He is defientely a trip. Highly recommend the tour!

Eduardo was very pleasant and accommodating. He provided us with water and got us lemonades at the plaza. My sister and I opted to skip lunch and we still got a 6 hour tour. Eduardo manuvered us around the large cruise ship tour groups. I learned a lot from this tour.
