Diane HillUnited States
One of the biggest highlights of being on a Princess Cruise was our stop in Cartagena and scheduling a tour with Daniel! He tailor made our tour with where we wanted to go and we saw places we ordinarily wouldn't have had the opportunity to see. Danny was knowledgeable, personable, adorable (according to my daughters) and I would highly recommend anyone who has the opportunity to book a tour with him, you won't be disappointed!!! Thanks Daniel for making our time in Cartagena so memorable!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wonderful meeting you. Thank you so much for kindness .

Judy WalkerUnited Kingdom
Daniel was a fantastic guide. We notified him that the ship would be 2 hours late. He researched the traffic situation and reorganised our tour to fit in with the shortened time. He took us around the old city, to San Felipe fort and Convento de la Popa as well as the emerald and gold museums. He managed the time excellently whilst ensuring we saw most of the major sites. He was very informative about all topics that we asked him. We only wish we had more time to explore this lovely city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your visit.

David StablerUnited States
Daniel was very knowledgeable and attentive. He took the time to explain and to show as much as he could about Cartagena. This is one of the best shore excursions that I have had on my many cruises. It's nice to see someone who caters to disabled people and provides them with a top notch tour. Loved Colombia and hope to be back some day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much . I enjoyed the tour too.
Barry KlicksteinUnited States

Reuben GarduceUnited States
Great time! Danny and his team were awesome. Everything was taken care of from transportation to and from our hotel, to organizing lunch and providing drinks throughout the trip. Danny was flexible and let us choose how we wanted to spend our day from when to eat lunch to when we wanted to leave and whether we wanted to go snorkeling. Danny will also get you to the island before the rest of the day trippers so you'll have some private time and have your pick of beach chairs. Highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much . Really enjoyed your visit.
Carol LoveladyUnion, KY, United States

Doug EvansUnited States
If you are going to be in Cartegena for a day...Daniel is your guy. We were on a ship and only had 5 hours in town. He has lived here is entire life, is a great story teller, super personable, and our group of 16 loved the personal tour he provided. We were early and he was waiting for us and arranged the tour so that we saw things in an order that was different from the big group tours...thus avoiding huge crowds. We had a great day and learned a ton. Thank you my friend. Doug (Seattle, WA)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much . I thank God i had the opportunity to meet such a wonderful Group.

Daniel was great professional and on point. His military background showed during the trip as he was a constant professional, gentlemen and showed a wonderful city off in a short time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Sr. Wonderful time .
Annette KelleyUnited States
We fell in love with Cartagena! Daniel was so informative about the history & current city story. Because he had a driver, too, we were able to walk around different areas of old city and be picked up later. Daniel helped us find good stores for mochillas (woven bags) and emeralds. Also the best shop to buy coffee to bring home. And, cigars! Took us backstage into Heredia Theatre, amazing place. He arranged dinner for us at Carmen which was a true gourmet experience & beautiful place. Highly recommend him
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much . You are wonderful people.
Jeredith StifterUnited States
Danny is a terrific guide. In addition to his knowledge, listening skills, and wonderful personality, he has a passion for Cartagena and its people. Our hotel manager told us Danny is well known, hugely respected, and very professional — the best guide in Cartagena. And we can see why!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much it was great to see you wondering around the city the next day.
Colin MitchellUnited Kingdom
Daniel you are a star, what a great day we had with you . The pickup was well organised and on time. The coffee shop / café was a great experience and the rest of the walking tour very informative . I would whole heartedly recommend this trip.

Seth R.United States
Daniel was great. He was on time and explained everything before the tour began. He was very personable and friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. Being a local, he gave us a more local and personalized experience than what our cruise ship counterparts were getting from the massive cruise excursion tours they booked with with 40 other people. We have another tour booked tomorrow. Thanks Daniel. See you tomorrow.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much , great to see you tomorrow.
Debra ParrishUnited States

Tamara WynnUnited States
can't say enough about how awesome our tour with Daniel was today! We love to go where the locals really are, where they shop, live and eat. Daniel turned us on to amazing street food-Fried cheese rolls, this egg meat cornbread thing and the craziest looking fruit I ever saw-tasted delicious! He took us to this trendy coffee shop, had fantastic carrot cake,even got to make my own plantain and eat it...Daniel was engaging, and knowledgeable...we saw all the landmarks too and more-hotels the theater! A+
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much I have no words to say thank you for loving my city.
Gay-Lynn CarpenterUnited States
Daniel was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. He customized the tour for us and combined history, coffee, stories, a museum, walking and driving for a memorable 3 1/2 hour tour. We were so pleased we had him to introduce us to Cartegena!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much , was great to meet you.
This guide is the best! Personable, knowledgeable, accommodating.... 4 adults, 1 using a scooter. Everything went just as outlined from meeting to drop off. No surprises, totally professional. Excellent accessible vehicle and skilled driver. Daniel is great. Do not hesitate to book this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much I really loved your Visit.
Cherie G.United States
Daniel was a wonderful tour guide & gave us a great day in Cartagena. He was very easy to work with to prepare our customized cruise excursion & was flexible as our group expanded from 12 to 25. The coffee tasting was a highlight for a lot of our group with the only negative being the heat in the facility & the lack of a mic so everyone could hear. Our walk through old town & lunch was enjoyed by all. Many said it was the best excursion they ever had. I highly recommend Daniel G.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your visit.

We had a most delightful customized tour with Daniel and his driver. We saw everything from the comfort of a very clean car with AC. Of course we did make stops and toured the important sites on foot. Daniel has a good command of the English language and it was a pleasure to interact with him about his Cartegena's culture and history.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much , I feel so delighted to hear that.

What a great day we four seniors had in Cartagena! Thanks to Daniel, we were the only ship's passengers who were able to visit La Popa Monastery. Daniel also organised a tour of the old fort and the old town for us, among other things - nothing was too much trouble. We found him to be very accommodating and knowledgeable and would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to see all that is possible to see in a limited time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much . Wishing you come back .

Daniel was a terrific guide, friendly, full of information, prompt and made the tour a delight! His commentary as we drove or walked around was interesting and personalized. He took us to a shop where an expert in coffee roasting gave us a private "class" in coffee making -- along with a delicious Irish coffee. His tour was a true highlight of our entire trip!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your comment This is what I love doing . Glad you enjoyed.
Elaine OsbondUnited States
I just realized when booking another tour through ToursByLocals that I hadn't reviewed Daniel in Cartagena, Colombia last year. Many apologies Daniel! We had a wonderful, informative tour, Daniel knows his city and showed us so many interesting sights. We booked the tour and asked a few other cruise passengers to join us and they all thought TBL was a fantastic idea and enjoyed the tour as much as we did.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your review.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much I really had fun too.
Terri MontagueUnited States
Daniel was waiting for us at the port when we arrived. We had a very short port stop in Cartagena and had to be back on board by 1:30. We never felt rushed, and he gave us a great overview of the area. The walking tour of the old city was the highlight, and he kept the pace slow enough so that everyone was comfortable. Daniel has a great sense of humor. We even had time to stop for a local beer. We enjoyed our tour and Cartagena very much.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your Visit , hope we can meet again soon.
Mary FlahertyUnited States
Daniel did a fabulous job with our tour. Our group of 5 all agreed that it i was the highlight of our ten-day Panama Cruise. For those in wheelchairs, a private tour is the way to go! Daniel was so informative And definitely gave us our moneys worth! We definitely want to return the Cartegena and book another tour with Daniel some day,. We saw more of the city then we never would have seen on a cruise tour. Great job Daniel and Pedro!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Mary for trusting in our Job. Best for all of you.

We had a great day with Daniel. He showed us the highlights, had great knowledge of the area and went out of his way to make our tour everything we wanted.

He brought us to local shops, brought our bags to the van, called the van when needed - just as helpful as anyone could be!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you ladies for all your kindness, you were more like a Family to me . You have a Place in my Heart. Hope to hear from you.

Our morning in Cartagena was absolutely wonderful (albeit HOT!). Daniel and his driver met us at the port with his large comfortable van and arranged the itinerary to suit our needs and desires. He is a wealth of knowledge, very pleasant, and his English is excellent. He helped us track down a second store where we were able to buy a particular type of artwork we had bought on a previous trip. I highly recommend Daniel as your guide in Cartagena.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your Visit , Mr & Mrs Eisenberg, I really enjoyed to Share my knowledge with you. Wishing you good luck and Hope I can see you for a Second Time.

Daniel was a very personable tour guide. There were 6 of us in our group, and it was great that he had a driver with him so that we could be dropped off and picked up right in front of the tourist sites, especially since Cartagena is such a busy city. I just wish we had more time to look at some non-tourist attractions and shops.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Mrs Deborah.
Ian McDOnaldUnited States
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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so Much Mr Mcdonald you both were so Nice with me . you will always be welcome .

This was our first Tour by locals and if this is any indication of the type of guides you have we'll be using you again. Daniel was excellent. He was extremely knowledgeable of the area, very friendly and accommodating. Great guy and very considerate to all our needs. Unfortunately we only had four hours to tour. Next time we'll take a full day. We would recommend Daniel to everyone...he was awesome! A great way to see Cartagena.
