A Recent Review of this tour

Daniel was the perfect guide for Cartagena. His knowledge of the history, and the current status were interesting and enlightening. He brought the past and the present together. Great communicator, well organized, good natured, fun to work with, friends with everyone in the city are attributes that we think of in describing Daniel. There is a lot to see in 3 hours but he makes work and it is fun to do.
