Description

Cartagena is a beautiful city that exhibits all the charm of its colors, climate, warm people and historical legacy. With this city tour of Cartagena, you will have the opportunity to discover the most incredible places of the city in a short time, accompanied by a guide who will open the doors to the city and its history. 

This tour begins with a visit to the San Felipe Castle, a fort built by the Spanish on top of a mountain to gain control of the bay. There, you will have the opportunity to discover the impressive architecture and history behind it. The city tour of Cartagena will continue with a pleasant walk through the Historic Center where you will visit the Clock Tower in the Plaza de la Aduana, a place used for the trade of enslaved Africans during the colonial period.  Then you will go to the square in front of the San Pedro Claver Church, a historic church that exhibits art and religious history. In that square we will have a short break for a refreshing juice or coffee. From there, we continue to Plaza de Bolivar surrounded by some of the city's most iconic colonial buildings.

Finally we will leave through the Clock Tower to pass by Centenario Park, a beautiful oasis in the middle of downtown where free sloths, marmosets, iguanas and other animals live and finish our tour in Getsemaní, a very special neighborhood, very colorful, full of graffiti, flowers, colorful houses and music everywhere.

Note: Please note that the vehicle will only be available for 1.5 hours while we visit Castillo de San Felipe. Transport back to the hotel is not included as the tour ends on foot in the historic centre.

Cartagena's Wonders Unveiled
★★★★★

My family has toured with the always excellent Impulse Travel team in Bogotá several times so we contacted them for a trip to Cartagena. We enjoyed a terrific day with Oralys visiting the National Aviary and a walking tour of the Walled City. We asked her a million questions and she thoughtfully answered them sharing the complex history of her City. Impulse makes the travel logistics easy for a family with a young child too.
