Having done Segway tours elsewhere, I was concerned how we'd navigate Cartagena's narrow streets and aggressive taxi flow. Cesar (in front and a colleague
In back) truly had it down to a science.

As others note, Cesar offers a great overview of the City and Colombia's rich history. Cesar previously lived in Miami, is fluent in english, knowledgable of S American history and incredibly affable.

The (very) quick 1-hour tour will provide a good orientation of the City, highlight a handful of architectural sites and provide some photo opps. (If you're a first-time rider, you may thirst for more time on the Segway and additional open road to fully enjoy this unique experience).

Cesar (owner and tour guide) speaks great English, is patient (our 3 kids were on the tour), and is passionate about the tour. The tour is a ton of fun and a great way to get your bearings on the city prior to going off on your own. I recommend the tour upon arrival. Cesar was prompt to respond to all email prior to our arrival. Thanks Cesar!

We are making Segway tours a must wherever we travel. Cesar runs the tours and speaks English very well. He is very friendly and knowledgeable about the city and we learned a lot during our tour. This tour combines a great way to see the city in a short amount of time as well as riding the segway which is always fun. Numerous stops and resting to grab a snack along the tour.

People are worried about difficulty balancing and riding on Segway - DONT BE! - it was so easy and effortless and the best way to see the old city in the small streets and heat.
Caesar is great at organizing and being tour guide and he has assistant watching out for the whole group (ours was 6). I was even able to take some pictures while riding although husband thinks I'm bit of a daredevil. He stops frequently giving historical and cultural info and takes pictures using everyone's camera at great spots. So if you're wanting to see Cartegena - GO FOR IT! BTW Wakim was our pickup driver but he is totally flexible and reasonable about taking you anywhere you want to go. The next day we went with one of the other couples to Playa Blanco about 40 mins away but beautiful. Wakim made sure we got to a quiet section of the 7 mile beach by arranging a boat ride!
Then he waited for us till we were ready to go back to ship. He's not the best on time so don't try and do too much - we had to cut short our shopping tour on way back from beach in order to not be late for ship departure. Did I say how reasonable he is? very fair and honest about price!

Segway tours are the best way to see any city and this one did not disappoint. Cesar was very prompt with email confirmation and answers to questions. He arranged our pick up and sent clear directions to get to the pick up spot. Cesar was very knowledgeable of the city history. We love Segway tours and have ridden a lot. If there was one thing I would change, it would be more time just to ride. All in all, it was a great tour. It works for almost any age.
