Good option for a quick overview of main attractions. No AC but the second floor has a cover and the wind helps with the hit weather. Not worth it if you have already passed by Bocagrande and is staying at the Cidade Amuralhada. Currently not stopping at number 3 as the bus cannot cross the bridge for safety reasons but we mainly bought this tour because of that and could not stop there. The stop number 5 requires paid entry and the surrounding is not very attractive, so unless you are paying to enter the castillo, do not stop on this place.

Sites are interesting but some stops lack of signaling or guide. We arrived to open if the stops (no sunshield in Cartagena , ridiculous) but we had to call to find out that bus had to detour and we had to walk to the next stop. If you come in a sma group I suggest you to rent a local taxi or van, you'll receive alit better service. Bus inside is dirty and some wires are exposed.

The Cartagena Hop on Hop Off bus tour is an EXCELLENT value! The bus route and descriptions are comprehensive, adhere to the printed time schedules, and provide a way to get a high level understanding of the layout of the city while enjoying the respite of some air conditioning. In addition, the walking tour is also a must! We had an EXCELLENT bi-lingual guide, Ronaldo, who had mastery of both English and Spanish nuances; demonstrated mastery/passion of his city’s history; and also happy a disposition with the local merchants/street vendors. My recommendation: the bus tour and the walking tour are a MUST!

Would not recommend it.
It was 15 minutes late on our stop and it was just the second bus of the day.
One of the main stops was closed so we couldn’t visit it, aside from that half of the stops are around the walled city and the other half around the area of boca grande which is mainly to pickup tourists.

The only thing that might be worth it is the walking guided tour but we didn’t did it since we weee staying inside the city and had already walked it around 2 times.

Mu husband and I have traveled worldwide and have enjoyed many hop on hop off bus tours in major cities. The Cartegena experience was a total waste of our time and money. The operators took our money, then had us wait for more passengers for at least 15 minutes. They then said that they had to drive us to a location to transfer to a different bus. Included in the ticket was a walking tour at a specific site; they told us a guide was not available this particular day. When they started to take us to the shopping district area rather than the old city area, we asked them to just allow us to leave the bus and that we would walk the rest of the way. What a bad experience to start our day. Thankfully, once in the old city area, we hired a nice local guide and enjoyed the remainder of our day.

I was a bit wary having read some of the reviews, but decided to go for it.
Firstly, some of the facts here are wrong, as of July 2022 the price at the official ticket Agencies, of which there are many, is 45000 per adult for a two day ticket (consecutive days). The bus, if you don't get off, takes about 90 minutes to do the 14 stops.
We decided to use it as a tool, the first day we did the full ring, to establish where we wanted to return and visit, only getting off at the Clock Tower to buy sweets , and the Boca grande Shopping Mall for lunch.
Day two we used it as transport to get to and from Getsemani, so as not to waste a day's ticket.

Just what you expect on these hop on, hop off buses--a very good overview of the city and a chance to get off at any place you want to explore more. We usually do take one of these when we visit a new place just to get the overview. Then we go back to the places we would like to explore more. The tour is informative. Would recommend for a first time visitor.

Helpful tour with some interesting information. Staff really nice. Bizarrely no bus stop by the clock tour just outside the city walls. Website doesn’t help and there was no timetable available online. The streets of historical city are too tight for the bus so the tour doesn’t really include this part. There, however, is a walking tour at 4pm every day. The cost was about €10 so don’t expect too much.

This was our first visit to Columbia on a cruise. The ship docked a taxi ride away from the centre of town but it was only $10 each to get a taxi from the port. Pleasantly surprised at how lovely Cartegena is, it has a real Latin american feel in the old walled city (the HOHO doesn't go into the walled city but there's a stop right outside). The bus gives a great way to get the lay of the land before venturing out on foot. We had a lovely ride round listening to the very informative commentary. Cost for the 90 minute tour was $20 each. The bus was clean and has open sides but a covered roof on the top deck to protect from the sun which was most appreciated. A worthwhile tour especially if you feel a little apprehensive as we did initially. Our lasting impression of Cartegena is one of a vibrant, family centred city with a mix of old and new blending together. The people are friendly and helpful.

We used the tour to orient ourselves. It worked as stated with the bus making complete loop of all areas of the city. Downside was no English Channel on provided headset although it showed a channel. Strange. Very helpful.
