I can't remember the name of our guide, but he was good and had perfect English. I was a little underwhelmed by the information provided though; it was pretty basic - I would have liked a little more personal insights or things we couldn't read in a guidebook or on Wikipedia. But it was not a bad use of 2 hours on our first day to get our bearings, to figure out where we wanted to spend time after the tour was done. Also he pointed out bits of local architecture that we might have otherwise missed!

Carlos was an excellant guide, taking us throughout the city and showing us the points of interest. Very informative with a great deal of history of the old part of town.

We enjoyed the tour with Enrique a lot. He’s informative, friendly, and gracious. The tour is a very good value—I learned a lot about Cartegena’s history.

Yes, the reviews are true, Edgar gives a great tour! You'll forgive his digressions and tangents as you swelter in the heat because he always seems to land the story back on its feet. Edgar is vastly knowledgable and sharp about local and world history and the intersections between the two. How he remembers his tourists' names is beyond me, what a talent! Great time, and time well spent.
