Fue fantástico. La simpatía, amabilidad, y llevarte por lugares donde no todos te llevan es maravilloso. Es una manera de conocer más cartagena, su gente y costumbres. Muy recomendable.

Carlos Alvarez 03/10/2020

Excelente tour con David Ángel, 3 horas caminando por las calles de Cartagena, por Getsemaní, San Diego y Manga, aprendiendo sobre la historia local así como evacuando todo tipo de dudas sobre la historia de la ciudad. Es muy apasionado y transmite eso, lo cual hace que sea más que agradable compartir ese tiempo con él. Súper recomendable.
