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

Toured Cartagena in early September 2014 with Guianza Express on an afternoon Fort/Convent/City tour. In short, this company provided me with a very professional product at reasonable cost with no hassle. 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

We had a great tour (easy to book and a quick response) booked for four of us to see the highlights of Cartagena. We had an unusual circumstance because two of us had not been feeling well on our cruise ship and had been quarantined until noon.....but the tour started at 9:30. Without skipping a beat, Walter-the owner- said "we... More

Booked a 4 hour tour of Cartagena with Guianza express. Turns out it is the same company that runs the Princess tour for the ship, but they had a large group, and we ended up with a private tour for less money. We originally booked a group tour, but turned out to be the only two on the tour. Walter... More

Great communication prior to the tour and throughout the tour. We were met at the pier right on time. Walter had laryngitis, so Ester Olivo guided us. She was fabulous! Our driver was polite and considerate . Ester customized our tour to our interests, excellent English, very knowledgeable. Walter checked in with us via cell (Ester's) throughout the morning to...

We had a great 4 hour tour of Cartegena! Nico was an excellent tour guide. He knew so much about all the sites and the in depth history of Cartegena. You will drive around and see the major sites, but you will also get to walk around the town by foot and explore different areas that are off the beaten... More
