Full description
You’ll be met at the pier by a smiling member of the tour operator’s staff, who will be holding a sign with your name on it. The 4-hour tour begins with a drive around the Manga neighborhood to see the Moorish and Republican houses. Stop at San Felipe Fort, one of the most outstanding strongholds built in America during colonial times. Follow this with a visit to Las Bovedas, a handicraft store that is filled with souvenirs of all kinds. Enjoy a walking tour around the old city (approximately 55 minutes in duration). During the walk you’ll stop to visit the Church of St. Peter Claver and the church’s museum (around 30 minutes). Head next to the modern side of the city for a sightseeing tour and for views of the Bay of Cartagena. Your last stop will be at the Emerald Museum, where a professional guide will teach you how to recognize an original Colombian emerald (30-minute visit). After this unique excursion, you’ll be transferred back to the pier.

Wir waren mit Aida in Cartagena gelandet und haben uns im Vorfeld eine Stadtrundfahrt gebucht. Eine so tolle Tour hatten wir noch nie erlebt. Unser Guide hatte auf jede Frage eine Antwort und hatte uns in der kurzen Zeit so viel von Cartagena gezeigt und ging auch auf individuelle Wünsche ein.
