“Fortress & Old Town Tour”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Duran Duran is an excellent tour guide. He was quite knowledgeable about the city & his english was very good. The fortress was extremely interesting & we wish we could have had more time there. Maybe the next trip?! We also went to a couple of museums (one of the inquisition) which were fascinating. The homes in old town were beautiful, too. The shopping at the end was a bit of a letdown, but we still found a few small items to take home at reasonable prices. All in all, we would be happy with Duran Duran again!

Thanks a lot for your comments, we are glad to know that you really enjoy
your holy days in Cartagena-Colombia. We also like the fort very much and we enjoy showing it to every body.

Please do not forget to come back to Colombia and specially to Cartagena De Indias.

God bless you and your family.

“Tour of the Inquisition Museum, Cartagena”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Duran Duran is a lovely chap and his tour is great. He explained all of the torture instruments in grisly detail and covered the pretty fascinating history of the Inquisition. Duran Duran's tour is very informative and he seems to speak a multitude of languages so no worries if your Spanish is basic. As a freelance guide, Duran Duran is trying to avoid doing large tours organised by cruise ship companies (the little pay that guides receive for these is often months late), so just contact him directly for a personally tailored and actually very reasonably priced tour.

“The best weekend in Cartagena”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

A japanese diplomat recommended us to use Duran Duran´s services. Of course, we thought the tour guided by Mr Duran would be interesting and useful. What we didn´t expect is the warmth and friendliness shown by Mr. Duran, that made us experience the best possible weekend in Cartagena, which included a tour along the historic city and another tour outside the city, near Barranquilla.

Mr. Duran is not only one of the most prominent and experienced tour guides in Cartagena. He is a multilingual expert on the history of the conquistadors, specially the history of Cartagena. But what makes us strongly recommend his services when in Cartagena is that he is also a wonderful person that when we left made us feel like we left a friend there.

“very informative tour of inquisition museum, Cartagena”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

Duran Duran's tour of the Inquisition museum was very informative and entertaining. He adapted it to our group composed of children and adults and his interactive style kept us all engaged. I have no hesitiation in recommending Duran Duran and I only wish I had been able to go on other tours of Cartagena with him.
