About
On this 4-hour tour, you will visit the best spots of the city guided by a local expert. It all starts with a visit to La Popa Convent, the highest place in the city from where the social dynamics of its inhabitants can be understood and the photos that come out are incredible. Then you will be able to observe El Castillo de San Felipe and you will end with a walk through the center of the city passing through the best-known places such as The Cathedral and La Plaza de Simón Bolivar. You will also go into the Monastery of San Pedro Claver, a saint who fought the hardest for the rights of Afros in Colombia in his time. This tour is the perfect combination of must-see and hidden places in the city.

A good way to see the city
Mar 2017 • Couples
We decided to take this tour because we were told that seeing the city on your own (unless you know it well) isn't safe. I felt very safe while in Cartagena and even wandered off from the group on my own a few times to take some photos. It's a lovely city and this particular tour is a great way to see the main attractions in the city.

Hi, Thank you very much for your comments! We are glad you enjoyed the tour and your visit to Cartagena. Security in Colombia has improved a lot throughout the years and you can walk the streets of the main cities without worries. However, the advantage of hiring a tour is that you can get to learn more information about the city, its history, culture and important facts that only a local can know. You can also get recommendations about places to go and activities to do. It was a pleasure to be your hosts in Colombia. Kind regards, Paula Duarte
