Description

Cartagena Walking Tour is designed for those who believe that the best way to discover a city is on foot. Get to know the beautiful walled city of Cartagena and get lost within its cobblestone streets. You will walk through the walls and its bastions, where you will discover some of the most important historical buildings. At your own pace you’ll absorb as much information and history as possible. You'll have the best possible experience to explore Cartagena from inside-out thanks to the local tour guides.

To start the tour, we'll pick you at your hotel or at the designated meeting point. From there, you'll start a journey that will take you to enjoy the imposing and beautiful clock tower (La Torre del Reloj), the spectacular entrance to the old city of Cartagena. This is the gateway to La Plaza del Comercio which is surrounded by beautiful old buildings with colonial balconies. The tour continues through the cobblestone streets to the next destination, La Plaza de Bolivar. This site was used for several activities in colonial times, thus its changing names throughout history like Inquisition plaza and Cathedral plaza. Afterward, you will enter the Cartagena Cathedral, which is one of the oldest in America, and continue to the place that safeguards a stunning collection of gold and ceramics from the main pre-Columbian cultures, the Gold Museum.

Conclude the trip by walking to the walls that surround the beautiful Old City. Enjoy the striking architecture and amazing views while walking through this wonderful city.

Authentic Cartagena

The tour was excellent! Our guide Luis Fernando made a real effort and showed us parts of Cartagena we would not otherwise have seen. It was really enjoyable.

Fantastic guide who surpassed expectations.
★★★★★

Juan-Fernando is an excellent, well-informed and diligent guide. He’s an academic historian who brings the streets of Cartagena to life with a deep knowledge of the city and broader Colombian/Latam history, and brings with him an iPad full of useful maps and images to illustrate along the way. It was a nice touch to finish up our tour at a fantastic bar at the end of our hotel’s street where his sister and niece work, paving the way for us to get into Cartagena’s best New Year’s Eve after-party. His English is nigh on perfect and his enthusiasm for the job is infectious. Would give 6 stars if we could.
