Jhon was an extremely accommodating & knowledgeable guide. We shopped for emeralds and ended up going back to the first place we visited (Mr. Emerald) to purchase. Jhon made sure we were there at the opening at 9:30 AM and had no problem taking us back. We toured the La Popa Monastery, Gold Museum, and Inquisition Palace. Jhon was very informative. Would do this again with Jhon in a New York minute. Too bad we only had 4 hours in Cartagena. We were amazed at the traffic and how well we got around.
