This tour stretched out a 4 hr tour but could have really been a 2hr tour. First 3 stops were insignificant photo ops with pesky vendors. Only 2 stops worth mentioning were the San Felipe fortress and the walking city tour of the walked city. My husband and I were the only Anglophones on this Spanish tour. Even though the vendor who sold this to us promised there would be English. William, our guide, did his best to include us and explain in his limited English. We saw other tours with majority English speaking tourists and wondered why we weren't with those groups.

Good overview of the city's history.

We waited for over an hour for the trolley to show up and when they finally did, they wouldn’t take us because we were the only guests who showed up. My five year old was so looking forward to sight-seeing.

To add insult to injury, they did not give us a refund after promising to bring the money to our hotel.

Do yourselves a favor, choose another company!

We were recommended this tour from our hotel on our first day in Cartagena (the only bad move from our hotel) when we asked about the hop on hop off bus tour to get an idwpea of the layout of the city and the key places to visit. A big mistake not to do what we originally planned!

We couldn’t understand why we made the stops we did as they appeared to only be stops to get harassed by hawkers and we were only given one hour at the Castile SAN Felipe when we really needed 2 hours. The vehicle should not have been operating as the fumes in the carriage made it a significant health hazard.

Be warned,
