My husband abs I used Cartagena Connections as a lifeline throughout our trip. We are from Ohio and both had taken some Spanish 20+ years ago but are not fluent. South America was on the bucket list and Cartagena was at the top. With some research I had an idea of what we wanted but Cartagena connections helped us fill in the gaps. The walking food tour was excellent and authentic and soo filling. But the recommendations along the way, the obvious familiarity with the people abs culture and the overall warmth both given and received by our guide Kristy was amazing. Cartagena connections also provided us some reservations for a rum tasting which was also very good and helped coordinated some time on the nearby islands. There were check ins to see about how things had gone and offers to assist in anyway she could. It was really nice to know that someone is out there honestly and lending a hand to travelers who may have reservations due to limited language skills. I believe seeing more of the world and other cultures makes better people snd we were so pleased to see this played out here in Cartagena with this agency!!

Kristy is a rude and unprofessional person to work with. We had issues with our 7:10 am PCR appointment and got back to our hotel 15 minutes before our transportation arrived. Ronal (our transportation/driver) was very understanding and told us to talk to Kristy to reschedule. When we did that, Kristy told us to pay for today AND tomorrow to reschedule, told us we lacked honor (lol?), and said it was unfair to the other vendors. Even though she knew it was something out of our control, she continued to speak to us in a condescending and rude manner, demanding that we pay for a tour we wouldn't be able to attend. SAVE your time and energy booking ANYTHING with Cartagena Connections. What type of business has no preparations outlined in case of and last minute cancellations or emergencies? A dumb one. Anywho, we decided to take our hard earned money else where and complete our tour with a tour company that was ACTUALLY professional and respectful, not to mention extremely knowledgeable and funny. I highly recommend anyone considering the Palenque Tour go with Freedom Tours of Palenque. Kristy must've busted her head when she got rude and then asked for money later. You catch more flies with sugar than salt. Take this as a learning lesson Kristy. We would've tipped extra because of the inconvenience but when you get rude and nasty, you get nothing.

We did a cooking class arranged through Cartagena connections, and we had an amazing time. They are a great resource for all sorts of experiences in Cartagena, and were excellent at communicating arrangements. I would recommend checking out their website if you are planning a visit to Cartagena, it has a ton of information beyond just the tours they sell.

Kristy is the absolute best. The cutest and spunkiest spice of life ever. We loved her free spirit and courage to go for it. Food tour was incredible. She also took us to the market — we felt so safe with her. There’s no way we’d be able to navigate without her knowledge and expertise. Thanks for a great time! We appreciate it.
