Willy is a nice guide. During the tour you visit several places with delicious (and cheap!) food. Just do the tour at the beginning of your visit to Cartagena, so that you can return ;)

Arturo ist ein sehr guter Tourguide und zeigte uns die Altstadt mit einer fantastischen Ausdrucksweise, viel Wissen und vor allem Humor. Die Tour fand auf deutsch statt. Neben deutsch spricht Arturo auch fließend englisch und natürlich spanisch. Wir durften Früchte und andere Leckereien probieren. Er ging sehr gut auf unsere Fragen ein. Wir empfehlen diese Tour auf jeden Fall weiter!

I cannot say enough good things about Green Tours. But here’s something I noticed. In addition to giving an excellent tour, our guide knew SO MANY people along the way (and was clearly liked by them). So if you are looking for a true local who knows history, the area, and the people of Cartagena then look no further!!!!

Best things to do and see in Cartagena, Colombia
Cartagena de Indias is one of the most beautiful cities in Colombia thanks to its position on the Caribbean Sea, along with everything it has to offer travelers on a cultural and gastronomic level. This town was founded in the 16th century by Pedro de Heredia and has suffered numerous attacks from pirates and privateers which caused the administration to fortify part of the city, making it the most powerful fortification in all of South America. The historic center called the 'Walled City' was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984 and is a main attraction for tourists today.
If you are going to visit the city, there is a wide variety of pay-what-you-please walking tours in Cartagena de Indias (in both the morning and afternoon) that feature local guides who take you on tours of the most emblematic sites and essential places. Among this list of iconic places, you can find the Palace of San Felipe de Barajas, the Palace of the Inquisition, Las Bóvedas Square, Santo Domingo Square, San Pedro Claver Church, Bazurto Market, the Convent of Santa Cruz de la Popa , the Zenú Gold Museum, the Cathedral of Saint Catherine of Alexandria, the Clock Tower, the Car Square, the Pegasus Pier, the Old Shoes Square or the Catalina India Monument.
If you have any questions, check out the opinions of the walkers who have already done the guided tour in Cartagena de Indias because it usually provides a lot of information about the tour and the local guide.
