Kala was a great guide. She is passionate and prideful about her culture. I learned a lot about Cartegena and its history. I highly recommend this tour; it was a great way to kick off my stay in Cartegena.

We have done many freetours in Europe and South America and they were mostly very interesting. Unfortunately, the one in Cartagena with Beyond Colombia was the worst one. The group was huge (>25 people), the guide was repeating continuosly that we were supposed to pay at least 10€/Person. Very few historical information, but 10 minutes showing us pictures from Miss Colombia! We were in Getsemaní but in the most uninteresting streets. The Guide was trying to be funny by means of singing and dancing, but he was not funny. Also the way he talked and acted with his Two assistants was not respectful. Usually after a free tour you feel more connected to the City, but in this case we had a very bad feeling. The size of the group, the weak explanations and the continuous references to the Price is the oposite of what we expected and we have never felt this in other free Tours Even with beyond Colombia.

Fabulous tour! Ronald delivered the historical info in a way that left me wanting to hear more. It’s a must-do tour if you want to get to know Cartagena. I loved it!

It was the worst free tour I ever had! It started 30mins late, there were multiple tours merged so there were way too many participants. The Guide constantly reminded us that the Tour was not free and if we expect a free tour, we are wrong. He constantly made sexist comments and told us he was happy the african slaves came to Cartagena because they built everything (without putting it in any context). I expect a guide to understand and put social problems into context to help foreigners understand, not to fully act out sexism and racism. On top of that he said that poor people are poor because they don’t like to learn and just drink. Unfortunately I don’t remember the name of the guide.
