Our two families really enjoyed to the tour. We got to see the key sites, received insights in English from our tour guide, and were able to cool off from the intense heat in the comfortable modern air-conditioned buses. This is the best way to see the historical sights.

Although they were 30+ mins late from the time they told me they would pick us up, and they do pick up a bus-load of 25-30 people before starting the tour - Richard did a great job. This is an English and Spanish tour (which we were not expecting) and I wish I had known that ahead of time, but Richard did a great job explaining everything about Cartagena. He told us the history, did a walking tour through the old town which gave you the lay of the city. Very impressed!

The tour with Nico was quite informative and he was very attentive to the English speaking audiences. This is a must take tour early in your trip to Cartagena. It sets the baseline for your further exploration later in your trip. La Popa and the San Felipe were the highlights.

The beginning was just a bus ride across city of Cartagena. It gets interesting once you hit the San Felipe Fortress

This is a good tour; however, our group was predominantly Spanish speaking. Those of us who spoke English felt completely left out. Our guide, Oscar, would speak for about 5 minutes in Spanish then say to us (once we protest) that he'll translate. When he does, it's usually one sentence.

We received 2 phone calls the night before to make sure what time the pick up will be . They arrived on time and we had a great guide and driver. Our guide was Richard and he spoke English perfect. He was very knowledgeable and very personable. I would recommend this tour.
