A must see if you go to Santa Marta...
★★★★★

I would definitely recommend this excursion and especially Nestor and his driver I can't remember his name. Anyway the tour was very informative and seeing Simon Bolivar estate is a must in Santa Marta. We also toured the town and many beautiful and churches. Communication and timing were perfect and they sent us a picture of the car and identity so we could see it once we got off the ship and went to the location it was safe and easy to spot. Nestor was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Thank you for making this a memorable trip .

Awesome tour
★★★★★

I went to the Aracataca tour with Diva as a book fan of Gabo Marquez. The trip was super informative with lots of callbacks from details in the books that I remember. It was a slow paced trip with walking in the town, food tasting and driving through the villages with air-conditioned car. Diva was super nice and she speaks great English.
