Description

If you are looking for a quick but fun and quite complete tour around the Walled City of Cartagena: you are in the right place!

Let our guide take you to the cradle of Colombian history and diversity. Starting in the Peace Square and through the Clock Tower, like entering to a whole different century, spend the following 4 hours getting to know its most important spots and broaden your ideas of the country.

While walking around San Pedro Claver’s square and church, observe the walls bordering the sea and the bastions, like San Francisco and San Ignacio, that were quite important back in the XVI and XVII centuries for Spaniards to defend the territory from enemy troops.

Learn and link in history the transition from free-living indigenous communities to Spanish colonization by jumping afterward to the Zenú Gold Museum, the place that holds pre-Columbian metalwork pieces of one of the oldest ethnics of the country, and then, the Palace of Inquisition, the Court of the Holy Office and a sign of the power the catholic church had in the XVII century.

Keep strolling through narrow streets and among old colonial heritage houses that will make you feel frozen in time. And then, after taking plenty of pictures, be our guest at tasting our Caribbean Colombian cuisine with two of the most traditional snacks: arepa with egg, a crunchy and fried corn-based tortilla with an egg inside and raspao, a cup of shaved-ice with a fruity syrup on top. Both tasting experiences with native people so you end up having as many sides as possible of the magical city of Cartagena.

With this tour, you will never forget Cartagena as the touristic capital of Colombia as well as a city synonymous with culture, tradition, and diversity.
