A Recent Review of this tour

Rafael tour was called the Real Cartagena Tour and it truly was. Spending the day with Rafael gave us a great understanding of the area and what life was all about in Cartagena. From the majestic views, to the streets of the old city, Rafael guided us with his love and knowledge of the city. What a wonderful day!
