Personalized and customizable private City Tour

Hi, welcome to "La Heroica" (The Heroic)!

Cartagena de Indias is an amazing city, full of history and stories. An amazing wall that guarded the city is now one of its special appeals. Beautiful colonial houses with vertical gardens and big balconies, "Plazas" (squares) everywhere and a huge military fort.

As your private tour guide, we will visit the main touristic spots all around the city. We'll ride in a private car, with a driver, making stops on the most representative places and wherever the group wants to stop.

Contact me for more information.
