There were 6 of us on the tour and we all felt it was A++. Marelvy made the day fun,educational and interesting. She was a bright light and we all are richer having met and trveled with her.

We spent three days with Marelvy in Cartagena and found her delightful. She is adaptable and intuitive always making sure that you get the information you need but not giving way more than you want (a fault we often find with tour guides). She has a nice easy manner which provides flow to the day consistent with the city. Her ability to put all Columbian events into a global historical context is a pleasure and gives real value added. We can not recommend her highly enough and are thankful to have found her.

We are staying in Cartagena for an extended period of time and wanted an overview of the city upon our arrival. I explained to Marelvy what we wanted and she did not disappoint.
Thanks to her we now are getting around on our own. She provided us with very personal service and not just the standard tour every visitor might get with a tour group..
We have been in Cartagena for almost 2 months now and see all the poor cruise ship people on these mass tours. All I can say is she is worth the money and you will be much more comfortable and enjoy Cartagena even more.
Thanks Marelvy

We were on the Coral Princess cruise through the Panama canal with an all day stop in Cartagena. We did a walking tour of old Cartagena, a visit to La Popa, the fortress of San Felipe and an air conditioned cruise through some of the neighbourhoods.
It was evident that Marelvy is knowledgeable and passionate about her city. She shared information in an articulate and intelligent fashion. Her warmth and friendliness made this tour a memorable experience for my wife and I. In fact, it was our favourite tour of the cruise.

She was terrifically flexible, cheerful and knowledgeable. You could not ask for more! Book her if you want to see Cartegena's Old Town, El Popa (Jesuit monastery with incredible views), and other places. She is very, very good.
