The value was outstanding. Cartagena is very crowded with traffic snarled in every direction. With this tour you can relax and enjoy the sights without ever getting off the bus. It also goes to every attraction you would want to see. However, beware if you are looking to but emeralds because many merchants will sell you glass, fake that appear to be a good value--THEY ARE NOT! eVEN THE JEWWLERY EXPERTS HAVE BEEN FOOLED AND SADDENED BY THEIR LOSS OF SEVERAL DOLLARS. If you are arriving by ship, there is a small duty free area near the dock that will give you good prices, real emeralds, and you can negotiate. I bought an emerald there and was told the stone was good quality and a good price. Furthermore, just get the stone, and then have your favorite jeweler create something back home--you will save hundreds. Hope this helps!
Can't say enough nice things about the tour company. We had bought these tickets because our cruise ship was stopping in Cartegena. The cruise also offered the Hop On/Hop Off tour but for a little more. The tour buses came directly to the ship for the ship's passengers and was sold out. We would've had a hard time getting into the city to pick up a sightseeing bus because they were so packed. The guides had my husband and I plus another couple we didn't know but who had bought tickets separately too wait off to the side until all of the ship-paying passengers were loaded. Then they found a way to squeeze us on. I wasn't able to sit with my husband until one of the big stops the fort where a flood of people got off. But that was fine. It was SO hot I would've melted if I'd had to trek into town and wait who knows how long for a bus to finally come along that was empty enough for us to board.
THEN a little over halfway into the tour, at one of the stops they caught up with another City Sightseeing person who had a big ol' cooler full of cold water. They gave anybody who wanted one a bottle. Which was SO very welcome right about that time!
I was happy to see the city from the comfort of the bus. I wanted to get out and explore more, but...I wasn't acclimating to the heat and humidity so touring the city this way was perfect. And the guides couldn't have been nicer. Yo habla un poco espagnol. I tried to speak a little with the guides who understood the little I knew how to say and the little I knew how to say in reply. Bonus, they didn't laugh at my accent.
Made for a very nice tour.
Very nice and interesting for czech turist: autobus je bezvadná akce pro orientaci v městě jako celku. Staré koloniální město lze vlastně projít jen pěšky, ale stojí to za to. Trochu složitá cesta je najít zastávku autobusu. Ve městě pozor na bary - pro turisty extremní ceny. Jinak krása.

hello good, service days: City Sightseeing Cartagena Hop-On Hop-Off Tour, was excellent, very good treatment and punctuality.
This is an excellent way to see the sights of Cartagena and get oriented to the country. Great weather for sitting on the top deck. Good value for the money.
This was a very organized bus ride, and a lot of fun. Staff was very attentive and helpful. And the price was great.
Tour what I expected, AC on the bus worked well, tour guides English was so-so, but she was cute so I'll give her a pass. Audio system worked pretty well and they give you headphones if you didn't bring any.
The traffic is just too bad to really enjoy this tour, or any tour that involves using the roads in Cartagena. Clean bus and nice staff.
I was very pleased with the convenience of this hop-on hop-off tour.
Nice experience and very good idea to visit Cartagena. I will recommend this tour. The persons at the bus were very friendly and nice.
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.
Our time ashore wasn't very long so we stayed on the bus for two full rounds. Quite nice and worthwhile.
We did this on our second day to get a good overview of the city. It was great. Very informative audio and a nice clean bus. Note: when on the walking tour, there is a stop at the Emerald Museum where there is a hard sell.
So much to see and experience in Cartagena! It is a beautiful and historic city. We had limited time so it made our tour and time limited.
Very short tour for a hop on hop off bus tour, but the walking tour was well done.
