Enjoy the best of Cartagena with our private English speaking guide tour around the city. From La Torre del Reloj, Plaza de Bolivar, San Pedro Claver church, Castillo de San Felipe, and La Popa.
Cartagena is a beautiful city, that captures the heart of all its visitors because of its colors, Caribbean climate, warm people and its historical legacy. With our Cartagena city tour, we make sure you have the opportunity to discover the most amazing sites of the city, accompanied by an experienced tour guide in a short time. This tour starts by picking you up at your hotel to take you to La Popa monastery. In this place, you can view Cartagena entirely from a watchpoint and know the history of this monastery. Afterward, we will drive to Castillo de San Felipe, a strong fort built on top of a mountain by the Spanish as a strategic point to gain control of the bay, where incredible battles were fought during many centuries. There we’ll have the opportunity to discover from the outside the impressive architecture and history behind this fort. The Cartagena city tour continues with a nice walk through Historical Center where we will visit  Torre del Reloj, at Plaza de la Aduana, the place used for slave trade during the Colonial period. Then we will go to San Pedro Claver church, which was built in the second half of the 17th century, to finally visit Plaza de Bolivar.
