The walking tour is a great way to learn your way around the old city of Cartegena. Marelvy Pena-Hall tours could not have been better at responding to my inquiries and arranging a tour that met our needs. Eyster was our tour quide and provided a 3 hour tour of the city - she was a native of Cartagena, very knowledgeable, very friendly and spoke fluent English. We would have like just a bit more about the history of the city.

We had a port day in Cartagena and pre-booked Marelvy's associate Ester as Marelvy already had a tour that day. We did the Highlights 4 hour tour. I can't say enough wonderful things about Ester. She was fluent in English, very knowledgeable and had a great personality. She grew up in Cartagena and clearly loved her town - it showed. . Four hours just barely touches the highlights as you could sightsee for a week there. Traffic is usually heavy as it was when we were there. Ester chose to do the tour backwards ( start at end attractions first) so we would have less traffic and crowds. It was a wonderful way of doing it and much appreciated since it was very hot that day. I highly recommend Ester.

We were in Cartagena for the day on a cruise ship and pre booked Marelvy for a 4.5 hour tour. Communication leading up to the tour was great and we knew exactly where to meet and at what time. We were met at the cruise port as arranged and then led to the mini bus and we set off for our tour. We visited La Popa, then the fortress of San Felipe, then a tour of the town including a couple of museums. Traffic was very heavy due to Columbia's Independence Day celebrations, so we ended the tour with a walking tour of the old town, which was great. So much to see. It is a beautiful city and much more than we expected.

We had a great day and would highly recommend Marelvy.

Marelvy Peña is an excellent tour guide and a well-cultivated person with much knowledge in the fields she´s developed: as a teacher and a professional tour guide. She´s friendly, polite and very devoted to what she does. She´s also been a tireless traveler which is an experience that has contributed much in her personal growth.
