          Mobile Phone Was Pickpocketed at ther Lusaka Intercity Bus Terminus
          After visiting the Victoria Falls in Livingstone, I returned to Lusaka by bus to catch my flight to Dar es Salaam on 26MAR. Upon arrival at the Lusaka Intercity Bus Terminus, I was surrounded by number of people who offered assistance such as bus connection, taxi...etc. I declined them and started to walk away, when I touched my travel bag, I found my mobile phone was stolen (pick pocketed). I returned to the bus immediately. All the people have gone. So, I reported to the police. Indeed, I find the Zambian people are friendly and helpful. I still like this country Just to remind people who want to travel to Zambia have to pay high alert to look after their belongings especially in a crowded place.

          We had the absolute best vacation at the majestic elegance resort in punta Cana. Our favorite bartender was Ismael Castillo. He was always dancing and singing and making sure we were well looked after. Hope he’s there next time we go

          Go For It!
          We really enjoyed our time in Columbia. Traveled with a small group- of people so had great company and a knowledgeable leader. We felt safe but we had to be smart about where and how we did our activities. The culture and the colors of the buildings and on the walls and clothing were fabulous. Learned so much about the other America.....South America.

          Highly Recommend
          My friends and I did the real cartagena tour with Marlon. He was so friendly, funny and made us feel very comfortable. He gave us the real information on how people live and showed us all areas of Cartagena. He is very knowledgeable and full of facts. We didn't take a boring history tour, he showed us how everyday people live.

          Amazing and Authentic Experience!
          My friends and I visited Cartagena for vacation and had booked a boat tour of the islands ahead of time with Marlon. We visited rosario, cholon, and baru, and the experience was incredible. Marlon and his crew provided excellent service and were extremely friendly and fun. Marlon provided us with educational information as well, so we could learn about Cartagena and the islands while we were there. The islands themselves were beautiful and beyond what we even imagined. Everything about the day was perfect, and was a great mix of fun and local experiences. We had no plans the next day, and had such a great time, that we booked another tour with Marlon. My friends and I went on the "real Cartagena" tour, which provided us with a ton of interesting information about the neighborhoods and history. We felt incredibly safe the whole time, and it provided us with the opportunity to see different areas of Cartagena that were much less touristy and that we would not have seen otherwise. Marlon is the best tour guide and I cannot recommend enough!!

          First Class Service!
          This was by far the best trip of 2019 and Marlon made sure of it! He was the best tour guide. Our travel group consisted of 6 girlfriends that are somewhat hard to please but he was able to “ handle us” and we had an absolute BALL! We were able to experience the best of Cartagena because we trusted him and felt safe. Every tour was excellent and reasonably priced. If you are considering visiting and want a memorable experience book with Marlon! You won’t regret it! He and his company are Amazing!

          Trustworthy and Fun Fun Fun!
          Finding people to trust in Colombia was hard but Marlon made me feel comfortable right away! As a solo female traveler that meant the world to me. I did 3 tours with Local Cartagena Tours because they were so reasonably priced and everyone made me feel like family. The first was the party bus where I had a blast and definitely drank too much, lol. There were people on the bus from all over the world but the music was universal and everyone was super friendly. I made lifetime connections and would recommend it for people who are alone and want to meet new people. My next tour was a beach day, that was relaxing and well planned. The final was a shopping trip at the market. I can't wait to return to Cartagena with friends and do it all over again.

          Personalized and authentic
          Our trip to Palanque was fantastic. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. The food was amazing. Everything ran on schedule but they accommodated our detours as well. Palanque is a special place and we could tell that the tour guides really care about the community and have a strong relationship with the people.

          Beautiful Experience!
          Our friend recommended that we contact Marlon for anything in Cartagena. Once we landed, we did just that and he was amazing. We went to Las Islas del Rosario and Playa Blanca in Barú on a private boat. The boat was a nice size (capacity for 11) and very comfortable for just my wife and I. The speakers were great and we were able to connect our music and party to our liking. All of the islands were beautiful and we made multiple stops to relax on the beaches, swim in the middle of the ocean, and party with locals and tourists in Cholón (rented a jet ski, ate, drank and danced in the water). Marlon was awesome. He taught us a lot about Cartagena and the culture and explained certain sites as we passed them. He really took care of us and we really appreciated that. He was also able to book a separate tour to Santa Marta for us which worked out great. Thank you so much for everything Marlon! You are the best and will be highly recommended to any of my friends or family that go to Cartagena.

          The most fun I’ve ever had!!!
          I could write a whole book about how amazing our encounter with Marlon was. He is so much fun, very knowledgeable about Cartagena, it’s history. We took the party bus and then he took us around the most historic and popular sights. I came back with so much pride in my African roots and all that means being a mulata. Thank you Marlon!!!! His pride for his town and his people washes over you like a warm blanket. When you are around him you feel like you are in a cloud and you never want to come down. He is fun, friendly, welcoming, a true gentleman, very respectful and above all very knowledgeable. I think he can teach a history class in any university. I recommend you to take all the tours he offers, you will never regret it. Because of him I’m looking forward to another trip to Colombia and seeing more of that amazing country. He made me fall in love with this country, with Cartagena and all their people. Thank you Marlon we will keep in touch. What an amazing guy!!!!!!❤️🙏🙏💪💪💪💪

          Party bus - chivas
          The best party bus I have ever experienced. Marlon was the best entertainer; very funny and always checking on everyone to make sure we all had fun. This was beyond my expectations. Thank you so much Marlon. I can’t wait until my next visit ☺️

          Best representative of Cartagena and Colombia. Best tour guide around.
          Marlon was recommended to me by a friend that I had met in Cartagena. I was not dissappointed, as Marlon is hands down one of the best guides I have ever experienced. He agreed to do a personal tour of Palenque for me and a friend. He was great fun, personable and had an incredible local knowledge. He also knew many of the locals. Marlon is fab. If you get a chance, don't hesitate to jump on board. He is truly a cultural embassador and a credit to the Cartagenian tourist industry.

          Best tour guide ever!
          Marlon is the best thing in Cartagena. He is such an amazing tour guide and he makes you feel very comfortable throughout the tour. I did a party bus and a private island tour with him and I recommend it to everybody. He was so friendly and was definitely informative about his city. The party bus tour is a one of a kind it’s nothing better than listening to good music with good food and good drinks with a good tour guide.
