Tour in Cartagena – What’s the plan?

Cartagena is not only the touristic capital of Colombia but one of the cities that holds Colombia’s history, making it a place for culture, tradition and diversity. This full-day tour will make you travel back in time and experience Cartagena in the most complete way possible.

Start in San Felipe Castle

Start this full-day tour by meeting the expert local guide who will pick you up from your hotel and take you to San Felipe Castle. Walk through this old fortress built by Spaniards, and let the guide bring back to life adventure stories of conquerors, treasures and pirates, while you learn more about how Colombia became so mixed due to African, indigenous and Spanish roots.

Second stop: the Walled City

Visit afterwards the stunning Walled City and stroll around the colonial and colorful houses as you know more about the main squares and bastions that traced our path to independence. Visit Santo Domingo’s square and church, the Cathedral of Santa Catalina de Alejandría (Saint Catherine of Alexandria) among others of great cultural importance.

Of course, this wouldn’t be the perfect tour without tasting Colombia’s flavors so you will have typical coconut sweets and fried arepa with egg, a traditional snack famous in the Caribbean coast.

Do you want to do something else?

Remember that if you choose the 6.5-hour tour option, you will finish this tour by going to the Convent of La Popa (Convent of the Stern), a viewpoint located in the top of a hill where the city, its sea and one of its islands can be seen and photographed.

If you enjoy discovering countries’ diversity, we are right: this Cartagena tour is perfect for you.
