Cartagena is a beautiful city that exhibits all the charm of its colors, climate, warm people and historical legacy. With this city tour of Cartagena, you will have the opportunity to discover the most incredible places of the city in a short time, accompanied by a guide who will open the doors to the city and its history.
This tour begins with a visit to the San Felipe Castle, a fort built by the Spanish on top of a mountain to gain control of the bay. There, you will have the opportunity to discover the impressive architecture and history behind it. The city tour of Cartagena will continue with a pleasant walk through the Historic Center where you will visit the Clock Tower in the Plaza de la Aduana, a place used for the trade of enslaved Africans during the colonial period. Then you will go to the square in front of the San Pedro Claver Church, a historic church that exhibits art and religious history. In that square we will have a short break for a refreshing juice or coffee. From there, we continue to Plaza de Bolivar surrounded by some of the city's most iconic colonial buildings.
Finally we will leave through the Clock Tower to pass by Centenario Park, a beautiful oasis in the middle of downtown where free sloths, marmosets, iguanas and other animals live and finish our tour in Getsemaní, a very special neighborhood, very colorful, full of graffiti, flowers, colorful houses and music everywhere.

Hemos viajado doce amigos a Colombia y ha sido una visita maravillosa. Hemos contado para toda la organización del viaje con Impulse Travel y la asistencia antes y durante el viaje ha sido excelente. Nuestro guía en Bogotá, Daniel Pedraza, ha sido perfecto, con conocimiento de los lugares y de la historia, muy amable en todo momento y siempre dispuesto a dar una mano en lo que fuese necesario, nos ha cuidado mucho y se lo agradecemos mucho. Cristian, nuestro chofer en Bogotá, muy profesional y considerado. Don Dagoberto, nuestro guía en Cartagena, maravilloso. Y Daniela Ortiz, desde Impulse Travel ha sido el hada madrina que ha coordinado todo con dedicación y eficiencia, siempre disponible, una interlocutora confiable. Gracias por hacer de nuestro viaje una experiencia inolvidable en la hermosa Colombia!
Great guide and great experience hiking the mountains of El Cocuy. We had nothing to worry about all transports were organized and our guide knew great places to go eat or walk every stop along the way. The room in La Esperanza is right at the beginning of the trail. We did get a bit cold so I suggest you pack a lot of warm clothes.
Fantastic experience! I highly recommend this event if you’re an coffee enthusiast. Gabriella was our host for this event who was very accommodating and knowledgable when it comes to coffee! Myself and my girlfriend left with a greater appreciation for Colombia’s relationship with the bean, and 2 bags of our chosen coffee from our tasting experience. Honestly, This was one of the highlights of our trip to Cartegena. 10/10
