I highly recommend Marelvy's walking tour of old Cartagena! My husband, adult son and I have just returned from a week in Cartagena and one of the highlights of this trip was our tour with Marelvy. Her historical and political knowledge is astounding and yet it is all presented in a very down to earth manner. My husband and I had lived in Colombia 25 years ago and we had a lot of questions about the positive changes we saw throughout the country- Marelvy was so patient about answering all of these questions. She also gave us very practical advice about where to eat, where to get the best juice, the best coffee etc. I can't say enough positive things about our experience with her and should we return to Cartagena we will definitely contact her again! thank you Marelvy for making our trip to Cartagena so memorable!

After a lot of research we chose to go with Marlevy and we were so glad we did. Marlevy has a passion for her city that shows throughout the tour. We were on a cruise ship with two teenaged sons; while my wife and were eagerly looking forward to the trip we were worried that our sons who had not had great experiences on earlier and soppusedly similar tours would be less than thrilled. However we all agreed it was our favorite stop. In part because the city is so beautiful and in equal measure because of Marlevy.

She took us to places others didn't go and while our time was much too short (the cruise ship curse) every minute was well spent.

We look forward to returning something I can't say about all our other stops.

Spending the day with Marelvy was one of the smartest things we did in Cartagena. She is incredibly intelligent, articulate, and a wealth of information about the city, the country, and the people. As if that's not enough, she has an amazing heart and a beautiful smile. We learned more about Cartagena and Colombia in a few hours with her than we ever could from a guidebook. She took us on a walk around the city while it was still morning-cool, and then took us to the old Fort and La Popa. She had answers to all our questions and happily changed the tour when we expressed an interest in seeing a few other areas and activities. She's wonderful. Really, really wonderful. If you don't do anything else in Cartagena, do a tour with the charming and lovely Marelvy. (And ask about her husband's artwork; so beautiful!) Thank you, Marelvy, for such a wonderful day.

Marelvy came highly recommended and she did not disappoint. She gave us an excellent tour of Cartegena. She has extensive knowledge of the Colombian culture and it was a pleasure to spend the day with her. She was also very responsive and easy to work with in booking and making arrangements for our tour.
