Hop-On-Hop Off Cartagena
Mar 2020 • Couples
Don't trust Tripadvisor. Booked and paid for the Hop-On-Hop - Off bus tour in CARTAGENA. We were instructed which stop to jump on. We stayed for 1 and a half hours for 30 degrees. No bus came. We asked a store that told us when the station was closed. We had to take a taxi into the city center to find the starting point. The whole day was ruined. Also can't find where I can complain and get the money back.

hop on hop off bus in Cartagena
Jan 2020
There was someone at cruise ship dock (we booked this on are own not thru cruise ship) to tell us where we need to go to get transfer to hop on hop off bus.It was not a far walk didn't have to take a taxi, this was great !!! We had a great time . We got a lot of information about Cartagena riding the bus. Got to do lots of sightseeing.Just wish we had more time. Would do this again !!!!! The staff for hop on hop off bus where VERY FRIENDLY & VERY HELPFUL, they even got us back to cruise terminal, no extra charge. We would do this again if we ever go back !!!
Thank You

Unsuitable for cruise ship visitors
Dec 2019
We went by taxi to 'stop 3' San Sebastian De Pastelillo (the nearest stop to the port) where we waited for 50 mins and the bus never came. We caught another taxi to the old city and wasted a lot of time trying to find the bus stops. The tourist info booth there was no help. The free 90 minute walk was at 4pm so no good as we had to get back to the ship. The buses are every 50 mins and the stops are far apart so too long and too hot to wait around if you miss one. Save your money and use taxis for $10 each way instead. You can walk around the old city by yourself.

For most of your cruisers complaining about the heat, the vendors, the humidity and all other issues you may not have in your beloved country or on the multi bizillion people on the cruise ship. Stay on the ship or stay home.

YELENKA was our tour guide on the bus... very knowlegeable!
Aug 2019
I booked Cartagena "hop on -hop off" bus from Pullmantur cruises. The price was very similar to the original one and we had extra buses connecting us to the Terminal, what was an awesome idea. Walking in 35+ Celsius temperature in not good for a long time and it can result in the sun stroke. This tour offers you two lines (green- old city and red the whole Cartagena) We did both of them. We chose option with the guide in the old city (all included in the same price) and our guide was young and vibrant Yelenka. She was very knowlegeable and has showed us an old city with great details. She took us also to the coco factory, ice-cream stop and beer location among all the historical buildings of a incredible history of Cartagena. At the end we had continued with the rest of the city. This tour gives you an awesome overview of whole Cartagena if you are there just for one day!

Jul 2019 • Solo
It was my first trip to Cartagena and as I didn't know anything about the city I thought about doing a tour with the bus. At first I felt a little bit unsecure because I don't speak any spanish but then I was super attended by Stefani Tapia who really helped me out and provided me with all the information I needed. I recommend it 100%!

Best way to see Cartagena
Best way to learn about Cartagena and their Stories. You can take the bus in 16 stops in tourist places with the ticket between 9:00 am to 6:30 pm. Every bus stop is near to interesting places to walk, take a photo and enjoy.

Wonderful tour
Apr 2019 • Couples
This was our first time visiting Cartagena so we booked the hop on/hop off thru our cruise line. There was a bus as soon as we got off the ship that took us right to the hop on/hop off. We got off at the walled city and took the guided walking tour which was informative and well paced. Could have done without the stop at the yogurt place but no big deal. Boarded bus and continued tour. They provide you with headphones and you can select what language to listen in. The bottom of the bus is cramped. We got off at stop 14, boarded a bus back to pier where we did a bit of shopping in the nice gift store, grabbed a cold drink, and enjoyed the aviary with peacocks, flamingos and other beautiful birds. When done we boarded a bus that dropped us right back at the ship. It was well organized.

Stay away - horrible customer service
Apr 2019 • Couples
We booked this excursion. Wasted 2 hours of my life waiting for a bus that never showed up. I called all of the numbers on the signs - found a guy to talk to who said shortly it will be there. Never was. I kept calling back - same bs excuse. One bus came refused to let us on. It was for the ship passengers. Found out all of the buses went to the ship. So anyone who bought 3rd party and went to a stop was waiting for a bus that will never show up. After complaining to Viator.com we were refunded. Do not buy tickets for this product. Stay far away - would have been better off renting a cab to do the tour. . I spent $20 to go to the bus stop - that's the other thing it sounded by the way the tour was written walk off the ship and 'nearby' was a stop. It was a 15 min cab ride that cost extra.

There aren't many options of things to do in the city of Cartagena, so the hop on hop off is a really good option.
