The history had never been so alive and colorful in an old center.

This is the best introduction to Cartagena: the Walled City, a Unesco World Heritage site and a fairy-tale city of romance, legends, and beauty within an old colonial stone wall.

Tour Description

Join us for a fun-filled walk to understand and to learn about the origins of the so-called "crown jewel of the coast", the Caribbean storehouse for all the gold and other resources the conquerors stole from the continent.

On our walking tour, you'll relive the battles and victories of the Europeans, the empowerment, and influence of Afro cultures, explore the narrow colorful colonial streets, see the contrast of antique-modern areas, and so much more! From its history, to its food and nightlife, to its beaches, Cartagena’s got it all.
