Add Kristy's street food tour to the top of your "Cartagena To Do" list. An informative, friendly, and filling tour that my girlfriend and I enjoyed immensely. Kristy's recommendations on where to eat, play, pay & stay in Cartagena are the best we've come across whilst travelling throughout South America. If only there was a Kristy in every city.

The food tour was a perfect mix of history lessons and tasting street food/fruits; my friend and I had already walked a good amount of the northern part of Cartagena, but we had no idea the significance of what we passed by. Kristy was able to bring the streets to life, and give credit to the vendors and their importance... More

I sent two visiting friends on Kristy's walking tour a few months ago. I live in Colombia and have been to Cartagena about ten times but these guys came back knowing much more than I ever did! Kristy was very nice about catering the tour to exactly what they wanted to see and was fun, friendly, and professional in the... More

Cristy was super knowledgeable and very helpful. The food tour was yummy and adventurous. She was great about suggestions for where to go and what to do.

we'd been in Cartagena a few days already when we decided to do a tour with Kristy. It was great to learn more about the city as well as sample some great street food and meet locals. Kristy did a great job of mixing the two tours together specifically for us and also improvising as it was a holiday and... More

I was travelling to Cartagena as a solo female traveller, and booked a tour with Kristy to see the Mercado Bazurto as a visit there wasn't something I was keen to do alone. Kristy is an absolute delight, had great anecdotes about the history of Cartagena, and made it feel like you were hanging out with a friend rather than... More

I was looking for a one day your to Cholón (recommended by my Colombian friend) and talked to locals but no one really could help me. I came across the tour online. I wasn't sure the authenticity at first but Kristy was really helpful answering all my questions in a timely manner and my doubt was cleared shortly. The tour... More

We had a blast. Kristy was a joy to be with, enthusiastic and capable in customizing our tours for our interests. With Kristy we did a walking tour of the Old City on day 1, a market tour and street vendor tour on day 2, and lagoon fishing with a local family on day 3. There was never more than... More

I am disappointed how this turned out, as we didn't make the tour. We travelled all the way to Cartagena and chose this walking tour from several that were available. It took a while to get an email reply, but when Kristy did contact us, she advised us that the meeting time was 10.30am at the clock tower. We arrived... More

I am so so sorry! I 100% deserve this bad review. Everything that was written is true. There are reasons (I was working between two mobile phones with calendars set to different timezones, and kindof drowning under too many emails and enquiries in that particular week) but no excuses. And yes. You totally, at the very least, deserved an apology... More

What an incredible walking tour. Kristy is an absolute delight and she is the only tour guide that is a native English speaker in Cartagena. We did a walking tour with Kristy the day we arrived in Cartagena and I'm so glad we did! During the tour she constantly offered take photos for us and allowed us as much time... More
