Everything about this experience was 5 starts! I booked online last minute and received a phone call from both Cindy and Andres the next day confirming our trip details and that they would meet us in person the day before the tour. Cindy came to our hotel, went over the itinerary and answered all our questions about Cartagena. The next morning, Daniel showed up with a large van to transport us to the marina, He was a great guide on land and even better on the boat. Daniel took us to a great diving spot where we snorkeled we were the only boat there. He then took us to a beautiful white sand beach where we had lunch and relaxed. The food was delicious, views were amazing, and the memories will last a life time. It was the highlight of our group's trip. Although I was hesitant about booking at first, I am so happy we did this. Daniel spoke perfect English and was able to interact with us the entire trip. I 100 recommend this tour and make sure you ask for Daniel, you won't regret it! Thank you again for a great time!

Our boat tour was a 10 plus. The boat was beautiful, clean with an excellent crew. Our tour leader Daniel was exceptional. He took very good care of us. He has first hand knowledge of the islands and gave us excellent information as we travelled thru the islands Great snorkeling and the carmel bread was to die for ! Daniel took us to a small private resort for lunch. We had great massages and enjoyed the beautiful beach and aqua blue water while our lunch was prepared. Daniel took care of everything for us and made the day a wonderful experience for all of us. He is a treasure !

After booking this tour on Viator, I got a call from Cindy confirming the details of my booking including time and location of our hotel pick-up. On the day of our tour, Cindy picked us up at the hotel and was prompt, professional and very informative. Daniel and the rest of the crew were very attentive and provided excellent service throughout the day. We had a wonderful time cruising the islands, snorkeling, visiting Playa Blanca and having lunch at a wonderful spot in Baru. Overall, this was an excellent experience and confirmed for me that booking a private tour was definitely the way to go.

We arranged for the private boat tour on Viator. Having never been to Cartagena before, I was a little bit concerned about the chunk of change we'd dropped, but lemme tell you, it was worth every penny. Cindy picked us up at the hotel in a spacious air conditioned SUV, precisely right on time, and 20mins later we were cruising out of the harbour on an immaculate 38 foot cruiser with twin 250s. Cindy actually came with us, and it's obvious that she loves her job and her country, and for good reason. She acted as guide, interpretor, and comic relief. We flew around all the islands with a well stocked cooler, snorkled, and enjoyed the requisite fried snapper lunch on a beach that I don't want to tell you too much about, because it will ruin one of the most amazing surprises of the trip. Our jaws hit the sand when we got there. It was a full day of amazing sights, and if I can convince anyone to take the leap of advance purchase, you won't be sorry. Oh, and then she got us a table at Don Juan in the old city, which is one of the best restaurants I've been to, not only in Cartagena, but anywhere. Consider us satisfied customers.
