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

Great local tour company with an office in the old walled city offering very personal service. Walter, the owner is awesome and very honest. When we asked to book a tour of the mud volcano he was good enough to tell us that the mud level was low and we would really get much out of the visit.

Recently went on a city tour with Walter's company. Good communication prior to arrival and Walter was there when we docked. As no others booked on the tour we got a private tour for $75 each ( we were willing to share if any others booked ) Our great driver was Alfredo - who kept the car cool throughout. Our... More

Hands down, the smartest thing I did during our Panama Canal Partial Transit Cruise with the Island Princess was to forget the cruise excursion options. After reading the reviews and the immediate and thorough responses I received from Walter, I booked a tour with Guianza. Walter and his dad picked us up at the port. There were four of us... More

The trip with Guianza Express in September 2013 to the Vulcan Totumo close to Cartagena was really great. The bus was punctually waiting for us. We got an explanation about all the steps we were going to follow during the visit to this amaizing place. When we arrived to the vulcan, everything was ready and the personal in charge of... More

My wife and I joined the Russell's in April taking this Guianza private tour that created very favorable memories. Unlike large group tours, with bus loads of people, we explored areas not included in the cruise ship's optional tours. We highly recommend Guianza and Trip Advisor, which led us to them in the first place.
