He also took us to the monastery for a amazing views and even more knowledge. He is knowledgeable, friendly, funny, and just absolutely delightful! Highly recommend to anyone who really wants to gain a complete knowledge of the area! We feel so lucky we found Duran!

In March 2021 we traveled for 10 days in Colombia. Definitely hard times for local tourism. Most enjoyable experience was Cartagena, thanks to Duran. He is a fantastic guide.

Wonderful! It was the exact thing we wanted: to experience the real Cartagena. My boyfriend is a big fan of cooking and I am a big fan of learning new things (I will note, I am an awful cook). Angel Duran picked us up from our hotel and brought us to meet Maria at a supermarket on the way to the Andalucia (as in Andalucia, Spain) neighborhood of Cartagena. At the market, Maria and Angel were very informative and patient explaining the local produce that we were not familiar with the US. I should note, this tour is typically at an open-air market to shop for ingredients. Due to the pandemic, Angel and Maria thought it was safest to shop at a supermarket. We gathered our ingredients and headed to Maria's house in Andalucia. She then gave us a ton of information on how to make our meal from scratch, including a wonderful tomato drink I fell in love with! Maria was beautiful and charming! Her kitchen is a place of love for food. She was helpful in explaining how to prepare the food to me. My boyfriend was very excited to learn her method of preparing rice and fish. 10/10 I would do it again! Angel is very intelligent and passionate about showing off his town. A MUST take ANY of Duran Duran tours you see on Viator. You will get a real local experience. Tip, if you take this cooking class, give Paco (dog) a head scratch.
