Fully customizable tour of Cartagena
Without a doubt, Cartagena's old city is its principal attraction, particularly the inner walled town, consisting of the historical districts, It is a real gem of colonial Architecture, packed with Churches, Monasteries, Plazas, Palaces, and Mansions with their overhanging Balconies and shady Patios.
The Walled Town is surrounded by Las Murallas, the thick walls built to protect it against enemies. The walls are an outstanding piece of Military Engineering preserved in remarkably good shape. The best approach to experiencing the Old Town is to wander leisurely, savoring the Architectural details, street life, and local Snacks along the way.

Daniel was an excellent tour guide, both knowledgeable and entertaining. He made us feel very welcome and we learned a lot about the history of Cartagena. The tour felt very natural (not scripted) as he adapted it specifically to our group's interests. He also extended the tour beyond the 4 hours it was advertised in order to show us as much as possible. You could tell how passionate he was about the city and truly loved introducing it to new people. He's a 10 out of 10!
