    Great experience!

    Ask for Manuel!
    This was the first tour we took a day after arriving in Cartagena and we met our tour guide Manuel right by the clock tower. Our tour ended up being private which was an added bonus and Manuel was the best guide. He took all the time needed at each spot, got us water and offered to take pictures along the way which all came out great! The pace and long of the tour was just perfect and we got to see a lot of Cartagena and learn along the way. We highly recommend this tour to get oriented with the place and definitely ask for Manuel when confirming your your details!

    Paid Harassment
    Do not go on this tour if you are just with women or are a solo female traveler. My partner and I thought this was going to be a relaxing tour of the islands but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Every island stop was a chance for the tour guide (our tour guide was Kevin, so don’t go with him) to push us into spending more money. I understand people trying to make a living and respect it, but it was constant and aggressive throughout the tour. My partner and I were the only female pair there and we got the worst of it and the tour guide contributed to the harassment. If you want a relaxing trip to the islands, do not go on this tour.

    Horrible day at the beach
    This was a horrible tour . The tour was rushed, the guides were not professional and the guides did not help with the vendors that were very pushy and to the point of making the tourists feel uncomfortable. Some guests had purchased the sunset part of the tour and they did not want to stay preferring to loose the money than to stay. Also they do not tell you to take a waterproof bag and the second part of the tour which is cholin is with floating tables that your bags get all wet . Will not recommend this tour at all.

    Must do!
    Great experience! I would recommend, keep in mind that only goggles were provided for the snorkeling and not the mouthpiece. Note that those who do not wish to go snorkeling, they take you to the aquarium for an additional cost. However, they provided a small breakfast, full size lunch with a non-alcoholic drink, and a fruit snack. Additionally, you get to go to multiple islands and still enjoy your time at each, rather than going to 5 islands and having little to no time to do anything. You will most likely get wet in the boat as we jump into the water from the boat, and prepare to go fast ! Also, our hotel was not listed but they picked and dropped us off at our hotel so be sure to ask. Overall, it was a great experience at a great value and price.

    Loved it!
    We are so happy that we booked this tour. Rafael was amazing and we got to experience authentic Colombian cuisine that we may not have stumbled upon on our own. The food was all delicious! Highly recommend this tour and Rafael as a tour guide!

    I went on this excursion with my close friends. The pick up time was on time. Overall great. You are walking up steep steps. Also, the volcano pit isn’t as large as you may think. But it’s worth the wait.

    Overall a good tour
    This was a good tour at a reasonable price and I would recommend it to others. We got to see the main highlights of the Rosario Islands and we felt that we had adequate time at each stop. The seafood and fruit snacks helped to keep us going until lunch at around 2pm. Just a few things that we felt could be improved - before booking we made sure to book a tour that offered English as well as Spanish. Most instructions/directions were only given in Spanish so we were a bit unsure of what was happening until we met the English speaking guide on arrival at Playa Blanca. Again when we were leaving we were only told in Spanish that it was time to go to the bus. For the snorkelling activity we were only provided with goggles and not the mouthpieces or flippers. We could see that other tour groups had snorkel mouthpieces and flippers. Your bag is very likely to get wet on the boat so make sure to bring a waterproof bag or dry bag to protect your belongings.

    Andrea our tour guide was amazing
    Our tour guide was super sweet and attentive to us. She taught us about the history of Colombia and the culture on the way to the volcano. She also made us feel very safe.

    Mud Volcanic Bath in Cartagena
    Mud volcano was a different experience. The massages was the best in the mud. Really enjoyed the experience. The bus picked us up from the hotel. It was a pleasure traveling so far from the hotel. We waited about 10 minutes once we reached the top of the stairs for the volcano mud. It was smaller than I had expected but it was fine. I lost track of time, I’m assuming I was in the mud getting rubbed for 20 minutes but they rubbed me the entire time. I went with my daughter and she enjoyed it as well

    Mud volcano
    Was good the mud does go all over was fun an enjoyable time this was my first tour wanted to experience it am glad I did my list of tours this one first it isgoof
  • beatrizrR5401XH
    Amazing experience
    We really loved this experience. The lunch was yummy, the mud volcano was honestly a once in a lifetime experience, and the pink sea was so cool to witness. The only reason this doesn’t get five stars is because the sea is only pink from January to April, so I was let down by that (went in may). The van air conditioning is not great also, so sweating in a van for an hour traveling was not good. The driver and tour guide did a great job though. Highly recommend! Just be prepared to sweat

    Pink sea/mud volcano
    Really cool experience! Very friendly people with lots of information. Juliana especially! The Pink Sea isn't Pink so that part could have been left out. Mud volcano is something different that has to be done. Be sure to get a message in the mud. The lunch was very good with a nice view overall good experience.

    Palenque tour
    Nice tour. Great information. Very nice people. I would recommend this tour. I didn’t go through a tour company, I had a private driver.

    Dora De Explorer
    This tour was excellent!! Dora was very professional and communication while booking was prompt. We had a very small group of 9 people, which contributed to the positive experience. Our guide Josie was very knowledgable and attentive to all guests. Incredible history in this city, and our guide knew it all. It was quite evident that both Dora and Josie were known in the city, and we were not hassled by street vendors. Highly recommend!!
