Take a look at some reviews that previous travelers have shared about our tour: Free Getsemani Tour Cartagena!
We are a couple from Barcelona and we usually love free tours for their professionalism, dynamics and freshness. In the case of the Gethsemane Free Tour on 03/22/2023 it was SUBLIME! Our guide Braulio made us enjoy the experience like the best. Set the bar high so that someone else can exceed it. A great professional and a better person, he explained to us the entire history of Gethsemane and its surroundings in a very clear and fun way, we even practiced some dance steps to better immerse ourselves in the whole story. Braulio, you are great, very great!! Just say thank you thank you thank you. To date Beyond Colombia is superior and with today's experience it goes even higher.
Kayla was an awesome guide! She had tons of knowledge about Getsemaní and was really enthusiastic about sharing it with the group. She had such which she kept up throughout the whole tour. I was so happy I did this tour in the end. It exceeded my expectations.
Yesterday we did the Getsemaní tour with Braulio and Beyond, and it was intense, fun, with many reviews etc… a total of 10, what energy this Braulio has, what a lot of knowledge and what love for his work. The day before we did the tour of the old part with another company (which I won't say out of respect) and no point of comparison, boring, little interest. Of course from now on Beyond will be our reference. Thank you Braulio for giving everything.
Kayla was a fabulous tour guide! ! She made the tour entertaining for our entire family (one child, one tween, and one teen included). We loved getting to know the details of the murals and graffiti and learning about the history and significance of the Getsemaní section of Cartagena. This tour was one of the highlights of our time in Cartagena. And all my kids loved that it started with seeing a sloth, monkeys, and iguanas at Parque Centenario. And it was great to end the tour with a bit of dancing. Highly recommended!
