Overview of your tour

At night, Cartagena reveals an indescribable magic that it keeps hidden during the day. Seeing the colonial bits of the city and how they contrast with the slice of ocean within the Cartagena Bay is an image you’ll want to take home with you. Visit what Cartagena’s famous for — Zapatos Viejos, Bocagrande, Getsemaní, and more — aboard a chiva with your newest friends and plenty of vallenata music. You’ll end the sightseeing trip with a local rum tasting and plenty of delicious fried snacks, but where the party ends is entirely up to you.

Good to know

This tour is shared, but it is also safe so that you feel comfortable roaming around the area. Enjoying the company of others is how we like it here in the Caribbean!

The tour will take you back to the meeting point at the Hotel Dorado Plaza in Bocagrande, but if you don’t want to go home just yet, feel free to stay out! Your guide can help you with how to get transportation when you’ve partied your heart out.

The guides on this tour are local and know their way around the city quite well.

Medical insurance is included in the price of all of our tours, so we have you covered in the unlikely event of an accident.
