Went with tour guide Manuel. Just bits of random historic information and a great number of years, but the story never got to live. No political context, impossible to derive the city's main historic events in time and just a few cultural facts. Lots of...More

We really enjoyed the walking tour with Edgar. It is very interactive and Edgar makes it very interesting and fun at the same time. It’s a great way to spend 2 hours in the walled city.

You will find out a lot of historical dates names from Cartagena in this tour, but they offer no information on good bars, restaurants to go to and it was a bit boring. Half of our group left the tour early as they were bored....More

Tour with Manuel in the morning. Good way to get your bearings in the Old City and where the different plazas are but thought it was just okay. Bring water as the heat and humidity are both high.

Yes, It is safe to take a taxi. Insist the taxi driver to take you to PLAZA SANTA TERESA, right there you find MUSEO NAVAL DEL CARIBE, we are just outside with the YELLOW UMBRELLAS.
