Escape the heat into an air-conditioned car, with a bilingual certified guide to take you to the city's most beautiful and extraordinary sites.
You’ll take in Cartagena’s most important historic landmarks including the 17th century city walls and the San Felipe Castle, one of the finest examples of Spanish military architecture.
Stop for a cup of the world’s best coffee at one of our favourite caffeine pits-stops in Cartagena’s insanely picturesque old town, declared UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984.
Panoramic views are served up throughout including a chance to get a shot from up high at La Popa Convent and a glimpse of the thrusting modern city being built in the beach districts of Bocagrande and Castillogrande.
We’ll leave you back at your hotel/house or at the cruise terminal, or if you prefer drop you at one of our favourite restaurants for lunch or dinner.
This tour is private and can be scheduled for whenever you would like but to make the most of the day and skip the heat we recommend leaving early (before 09:00) or after the midday sun loses it’s powers (15:00 onwards).
