Just book it! Wonderful tour!!
Stop reading and just book it!! Don’t hesitate, just do it NOW! I am a single solo American traveler and found Nico via TripAdvisor and sent him a WhatsApp message as it was too late to book on TA. He responded promptly the next morning and one hour later off we went!

Informative, thoughtful, well paced, historical, well planned, excellent English!! Travel in an airconditioned van with stops as needed and water. He even maintained protocol throughout and kept the mask on even thought it was steaming hot outside.

I highly recommend this tour! Very reasonably priced as well and met some American travelers during the tour and recommended the tour to them as well lol.

Nico also takes great pictures! Ans is very open to taking them as needed.

Please don’t hesitate. Take the tour and also leave a review as he deserves it.

Great tour guide
Aug 2021
Nico provided my wife and I a wonderful private city tour of Cartagena. This old walled city is beautiful and the best view of the city is from the Monastery of La Popa. Nico was extremely knowledgeable of the the city. The nice thing about a custom tour was being able to adjust our time at the different places based on our interest. Nico also speaks excellent English. On another day we took a all day tour to Palenque which Nico recommend. If you like history this is a great trip to get out of the city and into the country side.

Great solo tour of Cartagena, Colombia.
This was one of the best experiences of my life. I love history and discovering new places. Nico exceeded my expectations.

I was skeptical about how valuable the experience would have been, but I can honestly say that I loved every minute. Nico made exploring Cartagena so easy and safe that I could relax and just be a tourist. Everything was well planned. We even went over the four hours so I could take pictures and meet locals. I have hundreds of images from this beautiful city.

If you are looking for a unforgettable experience, look no further. It can get hot in parts of the tour when you are walking, but even having ice cold water available was planned down to the minute. I honestly am going to do this tour again when I bring my family back to Cartagena.

Nico was so darn impressive that people were stopping to pay him homage as we walked. I’m fact, multiple times during the tour other people started listening to Nico guiding me through every aspect of the city and even ignored their own tour guides. I truly felt that I had the BEST and most qualified tour guide.

If you think this is a fluff piece, don’t! I NEVER take time to write reviews. Especially good ones. I just hope that my experience and recommendations can help to make your visit to Cartagena as great as mine was. I have to return!

Great Raining Day
Jul 2021
My best friend ad I booked a group tour and were surprised with a private tour, which turned out to be amazing. Nico came just in time to pick us up and even though the rain was just beginning, I guess God had a different plan because it turned out to be a wonderful afternoon. If in Cartagena we would highly recommend this tour. Nico started off by taking us through the wall city, where we saw the fort , then took us to the Convento de la Popa ( Vendors made us feel a little overwhelmed, we get the pandemic but this was a little insane), ended our tour at a Emerald Store, where we purchased the most beautiful emeralds. Nico made our experience great, we absolutely had the best time ever! thank you Nico and Sion Tours

Private Tour with Nico, the Mayor of Cartagena!
Apr 2021
Our tour guide, Nicomedes "Nico" Vergara Melendez is not only an amazing tour guide, he is basically the Mayor of Cartagena! No matter where we went, everyone knew him. From the vendors on the street to the ticket takers at the major tourist sites, everybody knew Nico. Needless to say, the tour was in-depth, enlightening and insightful as only a lifelong resident could deliver. Ask for him by name!

EXCELLENT! HIGHLY RECOMMEND NICO
May 2021
I visited Cartagena with a friend of mine to celebrate my 34th birthday. On the actual day of my birthday, we went on a private tour with NICO around the city of Cartagena. He was OUTSTANDING and AMAZING. We totally recommend him. Super informative and knows everything and everyone! We had an amazing afternoon. Thank you!

Great Guide - Nico
Feb 2021
We had a great morning tour of Cartagena with Nico (Nicomedes Vergara Melendez) on a beautiful sunny morning. My partner and I was in Cartagena for our first time and wanted to learn more about the city. We could feel the love of Cartagena from Nico who was answering every questions we had during the tour to have a better understanding of the city. We were asked during the tour if we wanted to go off the vehicle at different part of the tour and Nico was there to show us around by foot. We enjoyed our walk in Getsemani, the amazing view from the Covento De La Popa and especially my partner very enjoyed Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas that I have to admit, was very interesting to visit. We really enjoyed our tour and can't thank enough Nico for his knowledge and sharing his love of Cartagena with us. Gracias Nico!

Excellent tour, very thorough!
We loved this tour! Nico was amazing, and showed us a great time. Worked very hard to make sure we were happy, and did not rush us for a second. Would highly recommend! Only constructive feedback would be for the length of tour there should be a stop for lunch even if it is not provided. We got very hungry around 3pm!
