Tour description

Discover the untold history of the famous Gethsemane neighborhood!

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

Get closer to the Getsemanisense 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 spawned artistic movements in cinema, painting, sculpture, the dance and, of course, the music.

During our tour you will learn more about :

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

Today you will find a tourist neighborhood with inhabitants who are heirs to 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!

It was a good tour and we’ve learned some interesting information about Cartagena. The walk started our very slowly, though, and in the first 45 minutes nothing happened as we met one guide first who lead the group to another meeting point where we met our actual guide. Then we introduced ourselves, etc.. After that the tour got more interesting and we got to learn about the history of Cartagena, and more specifically about the Getsemaní district. Ronald also gave us recommendations on where to eat. I never felt “pushed” to tip—he mentioned it once and we did tip as he deserved it.
