Enjoy a private and fully guided city tour of Cartagena de Indias, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Your transportation guide will be waiting for you just outside your cruise ship in Cartagena Terminal to get you going on your special day. The guide will give you historical information, stories and cultures about Cartagena de indias.

The first stop will be at the top of la Popa Monastery where you will have a fantastic view of the whole city of Cartagena de Indias. This convent was founded in 1607 as Convento de Nuestra Senora de la Candelaria, the patroness of the city, in the convent's chapel along with also the statue of Padre Alonso Garcia de Paredes.

The next stop will be the Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, a huge Spanish colonial fortress that took 200 years to build and testament to the engineering skills of the 16th-Century Spanish military. More of their handiwork can be seen as you drive into the Old City, home to Las Bóvedas, 15-metre-thick walls which contained dungeons and arcades which have now been converted into shops. The perfect spot to buy a handmade souvenir or two.

You will also see the Old City or walled city (Centro Historico), as this area is also known as, has narrow streets and open plazas. You will also see the Plaza of los Coches, Plaza de la Aduana, San Pedro Claver Church, Bolivar Park, Palacio de la Inquisición, Gold Museum and a fantastic view of the Cathedral.

The third stop will be at the Plaza Santo Domingo to view the famous sculpture by Fernando Botero, La Gordita. You will have time to take a walk through Old Town and stop to try some famous Colombian coffee, shop for hand crafted items, leather good, antiques or maybe even a Colombian Emerald!

Finally, the fourth stop will be walking of the wall at the Plaza Santa Teresa.

Please let your guide know about specific sites you would like to visit on this tour.
