Dora met us at the ship and introduced us to our guide Mercedes, who is the best guide I've ever had, hands down. I can't say enough nice things about her! We went all over town, and we got a great overview of Cartagena--not just the history, but the modern city as well. This was the highlight of the cruise--it... More

Dora put together a group of 14 people from our ship, and we visited the city highlights in a much smaller group than the ship's tours and with Dora herself as our guide. She is an enthusiastic booster of her city, recognizing its past difficulties. We like private touring, and had originally booked just for the two of us, but... More

Another cruise passenger arranged for our tour with Dora's company. We rode in a small bus with 20 people. The tour was satisfactory, but after the tour I read about one of the cruise tours that was offered for about 40 dollars. It seemed to be the same tour that we got for 60 dollars. We loved the old city... More

Based upon recommendations from a friend, I contacted Dora about 10 months before our Port of Call in Cartagena. We wanted to be sure that she was our guide. Over that 10-month period, Dora was always responsive to any and all of my Email inquiries. She committed to being our personal tour guide. Well, let me assure you, we were... More

This is an easy to work with company. We had a few emails exchanged (including one wishing us Happy Thanksgiving) and we were all set. All aspects of tour were exactly as outlined in emails. When we left the pier we were escorted to Dora. On our way to Dora we passed through a small "zoo" with monkeys, peacocks, lizards,... More

This was our first trip to Cartegena and we chose this service due to the positive reviews on TripAvisor. We were met at the end of the pier by Dora and her group and placed on vans for about 20 people maximum. Mercedes was our tour guide. She is a retired school teacher, extremely knowledgeable about the history of this... More

Previous reviews of this company seemed what we were looking for - especially small in size, cost & sights. Mercedes was our guide & delightful; full of information, funny & very pleasant. Got to La Poppa first thing & beat the crowds; what a wonderful view. A little disappointed at the fort, as we thought we were going inside. 20-30... More

We booked this tour OUTSIDE of the Princess Cruise tour services. We reviewed and received comments over TRIP ADVISOR™, the date was set and Dora personally provided instructions as to how to met the rest of the folks taking the same tour. I was traveling with my wife & her vibrant 86 yo mom, so I was very interested in... More

At the advise of a friend and the positive reviews on TripAdvisor, we booked a PRIVATE tour for four of us in Cartagena. We were most disappointed when we were put on a small bus with 17 people. The other passengers were also expecting a private tour and were surprised as well. Obviously, Dora defined "private" differently than we did.... More

We had Dora herself for our guide and couldn't be more pleased with the tour and her love for her city. Comfortable van and good driver. Would highly recommend her tours for anyone in Cartagena.
