Family Holiday at Christmas and New Years: Julio and his team were amazing. In Cartagena he set up our transport, a city tour. All his guides were very good. The most amazing thing is how he jumped in and helped us when one of our group got a passport stolen. He was right there to help us at all turns. If you plan to go to Colombia I give Julio and his team my highest recommendation.

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.

Amazing tour and amazing tour guide (Julio)! My first tour in Colombia and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The sites were amazing and the food was incredible. Thanks to our guide Julio for going above and beyond to making sure we had a great time.
I would like to give special thanks to Kelly for planning my itinerary for Cartagena and Bogota – she also arranged my airport transfers in both cities, my full day tour in Cartagena was amazing! We fell in love with the walled city, such beautiful buildings and great restaurants. Kelly gave us some really good restaurant recommendations and we also enjoyed the trip to fort San Felipe.
