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.

Belkin was an excellent tour guide. We saw the Castillo, Popa, and the Walled City. Lunch was fabulous. She shared so much knowledge and her perspective of the area. We had great conversations with her and she made us feel comfortable and welcome. Great Tour!
