A Recent Review of this tour

Jhon was very accommodating of our short schedule and very willing to tailor the tour to our interests in architecture and food. He was very personable and knowledgeable. His love of Cartagena was evident in his passionate explanations of the historical city. We could have spent the whole day with Jhon. We highly recommend him.
