Private tour of Cartagena
Ginny_Y, May 2023
Julio (guide) & Gabriel (driver) we’re great! So glad we scheduled this private tour. Julio is sooooo knowledgeable of Cartagena and the surroundings. Learn and saw so much.
Great tour and guide covering the main sights
Adam_W, May 2023
A great tour, my guide was full of information and anecdotes about the city and its history. Would recommend.
A must do if u want a very complete tour Private!!!
ernie_r, Apr 2023
We were picked up by Rafael, our tour guide and a driver ( 10 minutes early) , this tour was so detailed and visited so many spots that otherwise we would not have visited. The amount of knowledge, patience and friendliness of this crew is what made our tour amazing! It was my wife and another couple. Rafael would find awesome spots to take pics all around and would take pics for us! This was a plus because our wives LOVVVE TAKING PICS! lol Rafael went above and beyond and we highly recommend if you want to learn all about Cartagena n visit a lot of spots.
Private your from the heights of Cartagena to the city walls
Kara_S, Apr 2023
Our guide was very personable and well versed in the history of Cartagena. We started off in one of the neighborhoods, drove around the walled city and went up to the monastery for a great view of the city. I love that the guide listened when we needed breaks and asked us what we wanted to see more of. Highly recommended!

Guide gave us a lot of history, driver did a good job navigating around. Favorite part was walled city.
Great tour and tour guide!
wise_j, Apr 2023
Excellent tour and tour guide. Had a chance to see the old city and monastery and see the panoramic city view. Only thing I would add is a lunch should be included with the tour.
Gorgeous city, amazing history!
Amanda_S, Apr 2023
I'll be honest, I was nervous about this tour. I was so wrong! Both our driver and our guide( Julito) were amazing. We learned so much more about Cartegena on this private tour than we would have being stuffed in a bus. The driving is best left to the locals, no stop signs and barely any traffic lights meant there were cars and motor cycles every which way!! Totally recommend this tour! Thank you Julito!!

Great Private Tour
John_L, Apr 2023
Census was a fantastic guide. Manuel did a wonderful job getting us exactly where we wanted to go. I highly recommend them and this tour. We got to go on our on pace to the places we wanted to see. This private tour is especially the way to go if you cruise to Cartegna.
Very nice & interesting tour
R_L, Apr 2023
Very comprehensive 1/2 day tour. Our guide Francia was wonderful, and very knowledgeable about Cartagena. We had a very nice private tour that took us to Fort St Felipe, the convent (400’ above the city with spectacular views), and the Walled “old” city, which included many shopping areas (emeralds), the gold museum, and very nice restaurants. Thank you, Francia.

The tour guide, , Rafael, was excellent. He took the time to respond to all of our many questions. He showed so much pride about his culture and country. We were very satisfied. We are both lovers of history and Rafael proved to be knowledgeable. Thanks.

Rachel_M, Apr 2023
Julio was very knowledgeable and friendly. Our children who are 4 and 6 loved the tour. We enjoyed all of the places we went.
Wonderful city with excellent guides
ThomasJohn_O, Apr 2023
Francisco, tour guide and Gabriel, driver were great! Cartagena is a wonderful city with a rich history made all the more memorable with Francisco's knowledge. His manner of explaining everything also allowed us to absorb more of the info he gave us. And Gabriel navigated the difficult traffic in the city. Good team. Thank you for a great afternoon!!
Best Tour to Learn About CTG!
Eric_H, Apr 2023
Francisco was the guide and was amazing! Top notch experience and hit all the perfect sites to see and know in CTG. Don’t hesitate and book this experience!!!
Wonderful experience!
Maria_S, Mar 2023
Our guide, Alvaro, was very friendly and did a wonderful job showing us around. He explained the history of each location we visited. Our driver, Lembardo, was very kind and assisted us in and out of the van. This tour is a must when visiting Cartagena for the first time.
Treat Yourself to a Private Tour.
William_C, Mar 2023
This private tour was the best idea for Cartagena. We saw things that we might not have seen on a group tour. When our guide learned my husband is an architect she catered to seeing things she knew would interest him. I wanted to stop at Starbucks and she was like "oh no, we're going for real Columbian coffee" Loved Loved Loved this tour. Thank you!
A great way to tour the city
Julia_B, Mar 2023
We liked this tour and our guide Francisco and driver Luis were great. We saw areas of the city we wouldn’t have been able to get to on our own and got good narration from our guide along the way. My only complaint is that I wish we could have spent more time in the old town (walled city). The monastery and the fort were awesome but I could have spent less time there to spend more time in the walled city. But Cartegena is a beautiful, vibrant city and I would love to come back someday and see more of it.
Private tour for 4 with guide and driver.
Howard_B, Mar 2023
Carlos was terrific as a guide. Sorry but forgot the drivers name, who did an amazing job navigating the busy and narrow streets of the town. We covered many of the highlights of the town with plenty of time for walking and shopping.
A beautiful and amazing city
Harold_C, Mar 2023
Our guide was amazing and so full of information! One of the best we have had! She explained everything very thoroughly and had great time management! Our driver was unbelievable as he got us through the busy and narrow streets !❤️
