We had a tour planned with Dora herself for my family including my elderly parents. I read all the great reviews about Dora and how well she speaks English and the great tour she gives so I booked early and made sure we had her as a guide. Unfortunately she was sick and we had a substitute guide. I wish... More

It's nice when you get to review something and you have no criticisms. Booking a tour off the net, sight unseen, you always take a bit of a chance. Not with Dora's tours. We were met on the dock, and our group of 6 were led directly to our private van and tour guide. Mercedes, our guide, was a delightful... More

I chose Dora to guide us on a shore excursion when we visited the port of Cartagena. We were on a cruise critic roll call - so about 16 of us went in two vans. The vans are air conditioned, and that is truly important since this is the equator!! Dora has her driver stay in the van and keep... More

Dora met us off the cruise dock as a group of 16 and led us through a jam packed 1/2 day tour of fascinating Cartagena. Dora is quite knowledgeable about art, architecture, history and culture. She has excellent English and a good sense of humor. The AC worked and Dora took charge of everything including traffic when necessary. Reasonably priced;... More

What a wonderful and exciting adventure with our family. Doris arrived at our hotel (Hotel Caribe) promptly at 10 AM and our adventure began. We zoomed off in our air conditioned Van that comfortably seated 8. We knew from the moment she began speaking, her enthusiam for the city of Cartagena De Indias was something special. I took away a... More

If you are going to Cartagena de Indias there is no question about it! Talk to Doris De Zubiria. I used her city tour on November the 6th 2014. Of course she has many other tours but we only needed the city tour. We were 6 adults and 1 child coming from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I was born in Barranquilla... More

Dora was a great tour guide. Booked the tour (based on trip advisor reviews) prior to leaving for our holiday. There were just 8 of us in a modern a/c van & enjoyed many of the attractions of the beautiful city. Lots of history and just so interesting.I highly recommend Dora who is a warm and an informative guide. Very... More

One would think that there would be a plethora of sights to see in Cartagena’s over 221 square miles, not to mention the surrounding natural terrain. Dora's tours not only mimics the ship's tour, but follows their same order from place to place, all be it just a few minutes sooner. First stop the Fort, out just as the ships... More

We had a great tour with our guide Mercedes whom has excellent English. Dora also has excellent English and I highly recommend Dora's company as an alternative to a ship's tour. We were in a new air conditioned van with 11 tourists in our group. Dora will also do private tours. It was extremely hot the day we were in... More

Very nice. It was a fairly long walk to the tour van from the dock, so not great for those with disabilities. Dora did tailor the tour for those who had limited walking abilities such as my 84 yo father. Dora was very knowledgeable and personable.
