Wonderful excursion with no worries about making it back to the ship on time! Very reliable and great communication. Dora the Explorer was a kind and informative guide. Highly recommended!

The 3 hour tour is perfect with information about the city and its history as well as sightseeing and a wonderful guided walk around the old part of the... More

Our 3-4 hr. tour of Cartagena provided peripheral information about the CIty and its history. Some stops were more in depth than others, but short or long, our tour guide, Mercedes, knew her City well. She not only provided us with history but seasoned it with socio-political spices as well. Although our stops were predetermined, they were clearly the city... More

Our private tour with guide, Mercedes, was so much more than we would have hoped for! Cartagena is a beautiful, cosmopolitan city with an incredible walled "old city". Mercedes made the tour. She was very knowledgeable and had a delightful personality. All 4 of us agreed she was the highlight of our trip to Cartagena. Working with Dora to book... More

Everything I heard about Dora was correct! We toured with a group of 13 people in a smaller, comfortable air conditioned van.....so glad we didn't have a big bus with a huge tour run by the cruise line! We were there on December 26th with a group I had put together on Cruisecritic.com prior to our cruise. Dora customized the... More

Four of us hired Dora for the day and absolutely got our money's worth! She modified her tour to accommodate our preferences and made it perfect for us. I was particularly impressed that she observed my particular interest in Spanish architecture and made adjustments mid-tour to make the trip especially memorable for me. The van and driver were excellent, clean,... More

Really enjoyed Dors's tour, saw so much in such a brief time! My only complaint is that I'd have liked some free time (more than 15 minutes) in the Old City. The stops to shop were very brief.

We were in a group from a cruise ship. The group was large enough to divide into 2 smaller groups which was prearranged with Dora. We were fortunate to be in the group with Dora and the people in the other group loved the male tour guide (can't remember his name) that was with them. No problems being met at... More

Our cruise ship, HAL Amsterdam, stopped in Cartagena, Colombia on 12/19/2014. Based on Trip Advisor reviews, I had set up our tour with Dora several weeks in advance. Her contact info is Dora de Zubiria, dora@cartagenatour.com. Her e mail instructions were precise and timely, and outlined where our tour would be taking us. We were met by a guide holding... More

The tour groups were small 6-12 per group in small vans so we got good narration from and interaction with our guide. Also the small vans were very manouverable and got into the sites quicker and easier than the large tour buses. About the same price as a large bus tour, but better personal sevice
