There were 7 in our group including my mom. (*My mother has special needs with her wheelchair and our guide and driver could not have been more helpful and organized our tour with just the right amount of activity and interest for all of us to enjoy.) We did not have Dora as our guide but the one we had... More

What a fun day. Dora had people to meet us at the ship which went very smooth as they were holding large signs with our names on them. She was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour . She got us to all then stops ahead of the big tours so we were never crowded. This is a... More

A group from the Island Princess booked Dora for a full day excursion around Cartagena. We were met at the dock by Dora and her driver who took us to the air-conditioned mini-bus which was used for the tour. On the tour we went up to La Popa which is the highest point over-looking Cartagena, to the Fort which is... More

My husband and I were very pleased with our tour. We booked this tour in advance based on the recommendations from TripAdvisor. Mercedes and our driver provided us with a wonderful tour of Cartegena. Our group size was small and that allowed us the opportunity to have our questions easily answered. We would definitely recommend this tour.

We disembarked from a cruise ship to meet Dora. She had sent very specific instructions on where to meet her.She always answered my emails in a timely manner. I can only say Dora goes above and beyond any tour guide we have used. She has so much knowledge and shares it in an interesting way.She is a caring tour guide,... More

As soon as our guide introduced herself as "Mercedes without the Benz", we knew we were in for a great experience. This wonderful lady showed us the delights of Cartagena in a 4.5 hour tour. We visited Cartagena from a cruise and the entire experience, from initial email booking of the tour, through meeting and greeting and returning us to... More

Scheduled our tour of Cartagena with Dora; she answered all my emails quickly and thoroughly. She personally met us at our cruise dock as well as about eight others from the ship. Her passion for Cartagena is quite apparent. She took us to sites I had not seen on my first visit, including La Popa, the church of San Pedro... More

Dora herself met us after our cruise ship docked and we had a wonderful day with her. She's passionate about her country and very knowledgeable. We had so much fun on our tour. The walk through Old Town was fantastic (oh, the mangos from the street vendor), the pace was great for our small group, and we got back to... More

Dora's personal attention and love for all things Cartagena cannot be outdone! She will take maximum advantage of your timeframe--no matter how limited. She is flexible, delightful and knows the city, its heritage and the best nooks and crannies for a great tour--as well as the safe food vendors. Terrific guide--her 5 star reviews tell the story!

Not going to list all the details, suffice it to say it surpassed our expectations completely. We had Mercedes as our guide. What a great personality. She is informative and easily slides back and forth between the language and culture of her guests and her own. An immigrant herself (many years ago) this lady will win your respect and your...
