Led by a charismatic local hero, the trail starts in the bad-boy-gone-good neighbourhood of Getsemaní, takes in a street food pit-stop at the pulsating Bazurto market, a dreamy canoe ride through lush mangroves in La Boquilla and a visit to an inspiring social project in the heart of the unpretentious San Francisco district.
Stay off the tourist tracks and absorb the entire cityscape to truly get under the skin of this complex, yet beautiful city.

Hola soy Costeña y estaba de vacaciones con 2 amigos europeos, mostrandoles lo mejor de la Costa Caribe, y realmente cuando pensé en ir a Cartagena estaba buscando unos tours para que ellos se llevaran la mejor impresión de nuestra ciudad hermosa que tenemos, y una amiga me recomendo This is Cartagena y no podia creer lo organizados y las multiples opciones que tenias para conocer Cartagena de la mejor manera. Sin pensarlo 2 veces me contscté con ellos y fueron super amables y siempre son atentos a lo que el cliente busca. Y quede sorprendida del servicio que prestan para esta hermlsa ciudad, Gracias This is Cartagena por hacer nuestros días en Cartagena mágicos y el tour del bote privado fue lo mejor. Recomendadisimo.
¡Excelente paseo, que sin duda alguna, repetiría! Fue bastante agradable el recorrer el área de la bahía y el mar Caribe, ¡vale la pena!
If you like to internalize the history Cartagena in Colombia you must stay more than half a day! We went by private taxi and we traveled in half a day but only the walled city, with its squares, churches, and the wall.
I loved Cartagena, I loved Colombia, I loved this tour! Ronald our guide was the best and made it very fun!!!! He even made us taste foods that we would never have eaten in our home country.
I did the Real Cartagena tour and it was perfect. I got a detailed explanation of the story, as well as an introduction to the current culture.
Cartagena is full of culture and history. We had a lovely tour guided. Cartagena is to vibrate.
