Before going to Colombia I logged into Tripadvisor to see what there was to do in Cartagena. I was very impressed with all the positive comments that the "segway Cartagena" received so I put it on my list to do.
The day of our tour, me and my dad were a little late, but Cesar still went out of his way to make up for the lost time. He took us to all the important spots in Old Cartagena, and gave us actual facts about the city. It was wonderful to learn and to be able to experience soo much without running out of breath or getting tired! Segway in Cartagena is amazing and I recommend it to anyone whos in the city.

Our family of five had a blast on this tour of the beautiful city of Cartagena. Cesar's guys met us at the cruise port and drove us to his storefront. We were given instruction and training before departing. Cesar led the way navigating the narrow streets filled with locals and tourists, on a busy December 24th. His love of the city and knowledge of happenings past and present came through as he taught us about the important buildings and plazas. It was informative, entertaining and mostly fun. His lunch recommendation was perfect.

We booked this tour like many others off the strength of the reviews on Trip Advisor. Cesar is genuine and sincere guy. The tour is informative and so much fun! The segways are easy to handle and Cesar gives you a little training session before you start.

We highly recommend this tour, thanks for a great morning Cesar and for all the recommendations of places to eat/sleep for the remainder of our trip.

We originally booked the 60min tour but extended it to the 90min tour because we were having such a good time!

If you only do one thing in Cartagena of even South America, do this tour with Cesar!

I found Segway Cartagena on line at Trip Advisor and after reading the great reviews booked it. We also wanted to do a cooking class so asked Cesar if he could put something together for us. Without question, our day in Cartagena was the best in our 11 day itinerary and other cruisers were so sorry they didn't join us. We met Cesar just outside of the cruise terminal and he wisked us away to the Walled City for a nominal fee - all the time giving us information about the city and its history. We arrived at a restaurant called Collage and were greated with great warmth from the owners. The first station was the bar where an interpreter explained the extensive recipe for a local fresh rum drink. It took two days to prepare and was out of this world. After that we moved over to the kitchen area where the two local chefs prepared and served samples of several local appetizers. Again, just wonderful, fresh and delicious. Last, we were escorted to seats in the restaurant to be served a local beef; rice and plantain entree with a fresh green salad and the beverage of our choice. The class was 2 hours and cost $35/pp which was a DEAL! After lunch, Cesar met us at the entrance to the restaurant and we walked a short distance to his shop. He gave us instructions for the Segways and emphasized safety. We took the 90 minute tour because it was recommended in other reviews. SEGWAY is the ONLY way to see the Walled City. We got into areas where tour buses could not manouver. Cesar helped us safely cross streets; he stopped if he felt someone needed a break. But the ability to get up close to these old venues was invaluable. And Cesar was EXCELLENT with his knowledge of the city and its history.

In our 11 day tour, this was the best day of all and I have told everyone about it. You will not regret taking the Segway tour. We recommend Cesar and the tour without hesitation!
