A Recent Review of this tour

We had a wonderful tour with Jhon. He showed us many different areas of the city. But the best part was that he arranged for us to see the inside of the Jewish Synagogue and meet the Rabbi. We did not ask him to do this, he arranged it on his own. But it was the best part of our tour for our group. We were very interested in the history of the Jews in Cartagena and Jhon provided that information. The walk through the old city was very informative. Jhon was a wonderful, friendly guide who we really enjoyed
