We took an afternoon tour (about 4 1/2 hours) of Cartagena with this company and were delighted with what we saw and with Daniel Gray, our guide. His sense of humor, knowledge and facility in both English and Spanish enabled him to work easily with a bus load of passengers, who spoke either Spanish or English. He switched between languages...

Walter and his team are very professional very different from the experiences I has with other tour operators. I was able to have a tour of the city for a group of colleagues who travelled from overseas and they were surprised with the quality of the cars, guides and tours. I have known Walter for more than 4 years now... More

This tour is a must do once you arrive in Cartagena. Our tour guide Daniel Grey was awesome!! He was so knowledgable and took his time showing us around and educating us about its history. He spoke English and Spanish very well and we had lots of fun with him. The tour is about 5 hours and the cost was... More

The tour was in the afternoon and lasted about 4 hours. It cost COP 54,000 per person (less than £20) which was great value. It included a visit to the Fort of San Felipe de Barajas as well as the Convento de Candelaria on the Popa Hill. There was also a visit to the Las Bovedas shopping arches located in... More

My wife and I booked a private City Tour of Cartagena through Walter. He never failed to respond promptly to any questions. We arrived by cruise ship and were met by one of Walter's representatives who led us to the holding area for independent tours. Walter was there and introduced us to our guide, Daniel and driver, Auturo. Daniel knows... More

Communiation with Walter prior to the tour was excellent, I even threw a last minute hotel switch that was accomdated without issue. Pick up was on time, the guide... More

Hotel staff has recommended a city tour with Guianza early in the morning. They called the agency and, even though there were no more city tours planned for that particular morning, the agency has arranged for an ad-hoc tour for me and my boyfriend, and for other four people who had also called last-minute. Walter, the agency owner, and Óscar,... More

Our hotel concierge arranged a wonderful tour of Cartagena with our guide Nicomedes Vergara. We wanted to do a 3 hour walking tour of the old city, but ended up spending 4+ hours with Nico as we enjoyed the tour so much and wanted to add on the Fort (a don't miss!!). Nico was friendly, informative and clearly well-known around... More

I cannot commend Guizana Express and the owner of the company, Walter, enough for the amazing hospitality and service my friend and I experienced during our recent visit to Cartagena. I had contacted a friend who had visited Cartagena earlier this year for suggestions for tours. Guizana Express was one of a few companies that had been recommended to me.... More

I contacted Walter regarding tour recommendations to the Rosario Islands. Walter was very kind and responsive. He met us at the dock before and after the tour and was very attentive. However, in my emails with Walter it seemed as though he was the tour provider, not just the transportation and coordinator. I think when Walter is acting as the... More
