This 'tour' does not attempt to hide the changes taking place in this fiercely traditional barrio, far from it, the experience is designed to help visitors connect with the local population, understand what makes the barrio so special and engage with the people doing their bit to ensure that it preserves its particular charm.
Filled with vivacious and idiosyncratic characters like El Zanahoriazo, the charismatic vendor selling carrot juice, the street legends that play ludo like their lives depend on it and the carpenters and tradesmen staying true to the district’s working class roots.

A great tour of the up and coming Getsemani neighborhood. My guide was very pleasant and informative. I highly recommend to anyone spending a day or two in Cartagena.
En mi segunda visita a Cartagena quise conocer el barrio de Getsemani. Fue una excelente experiencia.Hicimos un tour a pie por el area de Getsemani y fue una inolvidable experiencia conocer este barrio con fuertes raices afrodescendientes. Muy recomendable!
Este es Cartagena era parte de la gran experiencia que tuvimos en Cartagena. Reservamos las excursiones alrededor de Getsemani, y el centro histórico. Ronald nuestro guía fue excelente, no solo fue muy eficiente, pero también nos hizo sentir muy cómodos. También reservamos una clase de salsa y nos ayudaron a hacer reservas en un restaurante. Sin duda recomendaría este es Cartagena, tienen un excelente servicio al cliente y son exactamente lo que cualquier turista necesita cuando están de visita en Cartagena.
