On a recent cruise through the Panama Canal, we made sightseeing arrangements with” Dora the Explorer” in Cartagena, Columbia. We had found her here on TripAdvisor and as she was highly recommended by previous travelers, we enlisted her help. During our initial contact, I explained what my wife and I were looking for in a tour and things that we... More

Cartagena with Dora De Zubira (Dora the Explorer) Four of us, on a Queen Victoria cruise from Los Angeles to Southampton, after lengthy internet research, booked a tour of Cartagena with Dora De Zubira. All the reviews we read praised Dora herself as well as her tours. On the day we were there, Dora was taking out a larger party... More

After spending some hours comparing the different tours/companies available - Princess, Cruise Critic, Trip Advisor, etc. I decided on "Dora the Explorer" and was not disappointed. The meeting was lengthy because one couple was a bit slow to arrive - this was a pity as it was very hot and humid (I love this but some others did not). Mercedes... More

We loved our tour of Cartagena new and old with Dora. She has a great personality with amazing knowledge of old and new Cartagena - she really made our tour both informative and lots of fun. Dora arrived very promptly at our hotel in her spotless car. We were soon on our way to explore the newer parts of the... More

We had originally booked a shore excursion thru our cruise line but really were not thrilled with the itinerary. Then a person in the cruise Facebook group suggested joining her family and go with Dora instead. What a great suggestion!! Dora was fantastic and extremely knowledgeable about Cartagena, especially the old walled part of the city and the fort. The... More

I booked the private 4-hour City Tour based on reviews on Cruise Critic and Trip Advisor. Our group of eight were met just steps off the cruise ship by members from Dora's company and directed where we should go. We met Mercedes, our guide, in the parking lot outside the visitor's center and off we went. She is a delight... More

I booked this tour with Dora more than a year in advance. Dora was quick to respond to any inquiries and because we booked so early we were fortunate to have Dora as our tour guide. We were a group of 4 amongst approximately 12 from our cruise ship. Cartagena is beautiful and Dora did an excellent job of sharing... More

i booked our tour with Dora on the recommendation of friends and most certainly did not regret it. We left our ship as soon as it docked and had to walk to outside the dock gates to find Dora and the buses (there were 54 of us). WARNING - if you are disabled in any way ask the ship for... More

Dora provided a very comprehensive tour of her city. Taking us throughout the walled city into the new city and even up to Popa. All done within the 4 hours we had before having to return to our cruise ship. She is very knowledgeable and accommodating. I highly recommend her as your guide in Cartagena, Columbia.
