Tour description

Discover the untold history of the famous Gethsemane neighborhood!

We are the largest group of expert local Free Tours guides in Colombia with 12 original tours created by ourselves and also the most awarded in the country! 7 international recognitions, 5 TripAdvisor Travelers Choice and Top 3 in Bogotá, Cartagena, Medellín and Cali.

We are authentic guides connecting Colombia since 2013, 10 years sharing passion in every step!

Walk through the most emblematic streets and representative squares of a historically resilient town, its folklore, its colors, its music and its people.

Get closer to the Getsemani culture through our tour, where you will understand the importance of a segregated and insurgent people during the colony, whose fighting spirit initiated independence and over time engendered artistic movements in cinema, painting, sculpture, dancing and, of course, music.

During our tour you will be able to learn more about :

- Graffiti as a form of resistance
- Centennial Park
- Artistic Trinity Square
- "The Well" Square
- San Felipe Fortress Viewpoint
- And much more!

Today you will find a tourist neighborhood with inhabitants heirs of a rich culture, which at first glance hides stories and legends of revolution, pride and tradition.

Join this journey through time, culture and art, to discover the other side of Cartagena de Indias - the Heroic!

Julieth fue una buena guía. Su discurso era ameno y se esforzaba por interactuar con el mayor número de personas posible. El problema fue que el grupo era tan grande, que era muy complicado no perderte información o no perderte tú mismo, como nos pasó a más de 10 personas en Getsemaní.
