This was an excellent tour! Paulina led our group of 9 through some of the highlights of Cartagena (Bazurto market, La Popa, Historic Center, Getsemani) with expert and interesting commentary. We had a comfortable and convenient van (thanks Everto!) to get us from place to place. Paulina was extremely responsive and designed a tour in advance (and was flexible during the tour) that was exactly what we wanted to do. This is a fantastic way to see Cartagena and I couldn't recommend Paulina more highly!

Paulina did an excellent job in tailoring our tour of Cartegena to cater to the needs of my family - which included our 2 teenage daughters. Our tour appealed to both young and old in our family. My wife is vegetarian and Paulina was great at providing us with recommendations for places to eat for dinner as well. Her tour gave a great overview of Cartegena and made the rest of our stay in the city that much more enjoyable. Highly recommend her for any family vacation!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mrs Rohit you and your family make me si easy share the city and it's secrets. It was a real pleasure I hope welcome You again in Colombia!!

Date: Feb 18/20

Pauline was an excellent guide that did everything possible to make our day at Cartagena perfect! We saw the pink sea and then she took us to a place to see the a mud bath that was more private than the one you see advertised. It was located on top of a small cliff that gave us a wonderful view of the Sea and the countryside. Afterwards we returned to Cartagena and some shops. There were six of us and all of us agreed that she did a great job and we highly recommend Pauline!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ellen you with your positive energy make everything funny and enjoyable. Thanks to visit us, give My greetrings yo everybody

Paulina was wonderful! We had a large group (8 people) and we were picked up outside of the port in a large comfortable van. Luis was our lovely driver and from the minute we boarded the van, Paulina was sharing the rich and amazing history of her beloved Cartagena. We toured the fortress at San Filipe then traveled up to Popa Hill for the stunning panoramic views. Followed this with a walk through the old town, stopped at a local shop for a snack and local coffee. Amazing trip!!! Gracias, Paulina!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Rosemary Thanks you to allow me share Colombia and Cartagena 's culture. It was a real pleasure. All of you are clever and kind at the same time, perfect blend!! Sure, we see each other again

We had a great time with Paulina in Cartagena.

Our kids (age 11 and 8) also enjoyed everything about the tour. Thank you so much, Paulina!

We really enjoyed our tour with Paulina, she is wonderful and very knowledgeable. Her English is excellent and she knows so much about Colombian history and culture. She took us around the old city and Getsemani, it was really lovely. It was just my husband and I and I think a small tour with her is great. The driver she had for us was also friendly and professional. We would use her again when we come back to Colombia. She is great!!

Paulina was a wonderful guide. She was very knowledgeable about Cartagena & Colombian history. She has a fun personality & is able to relate to all people. She was very considerate of the two slow walkers in our group. Even though we had a rainy day we visited La Popa, Old Town, a local coffee shop, drove around San Felipe fortress & neighborhoods where local people live. She was the best guide of 5 that we have used on our cruise. I highly recommend Paulina.

Paulina is an exceptional professional guide whose depth of knowledge & charming personality truly exceeded my expectations for a Cartagena city tour. I learned a great deal about the city's unique past, its sites and its people and culture. I now feel that I understand more about both Cartagena and Colombia -- historically and present day. Paulina also had an exceptional, personable driver, and both made me feel comfortable at all times. I don't think I could have wished for a more memorable experience!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Marcy you make us enjoying the city ,look it with another eyes. We enjoying a lot with your explosive and natural smile. It was a real pleasure meet you. Our best wishes to you!!

Five out of Five We had a great day with Paulina R. She was on time when our cruise ship docked and made sure we saw not only the highlights of the area but those places we had indicated we would like to see. She was knowledgeable about the places she took us and always had an answer to our questions. You won't be disappointed by having her as your guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mr and Mrs Craft It was a real pleasure have you here in Cartagena de Indias . You are smart and lovely couple. I hope see you again anywhere in Colombia. Your Colombian Tourguide

Had an amazing time with Paulina. She took time to learn all 8 of our names and where we were from. She considered what WE wanted to do and built our tour around that. She was informative and fun! When our time with our driver was finished she continued to show us Cartagena on foot and we had a really intimate tour of the city. We finished with drinks at a fabulous seafront bar and as time was tight for us returning to our cruise ship she personally escorted us. Can't recommend Paulina highly enough. TY x

We had a wonderful day with Paulina in Cartagena, Columbia. Our custom tour hit the spot and included la Popa Monastery, Castillo San Felipe, a delicious lunch at a local restaurant, and walking tour of the old city. Paulina was a fountain of knowledge of history and culture of the city. There were five of us, including my four year old granddaughter. Paulina adapted beautifully to accommodate individual preferences -- including my own, for emeralds!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks you to allow me share Cartagena with you. It was a real pleasure,you are very nice and special visitors. Always welcome!!

Paulina was an awesome guide. She was extremely personable and accommodating to our tour requests. She provided many interesting and valuable insights not only into Columbian and Cartagena history but also into the personal and political climate prevailing at that time. We were super impressed with her knowledge, humor and details of our tour. Strongly recommend her and would definitely use her again next time in Cartagena. She goes well above and beyond what I expected.
