Historic Walking Tour & Gold Museum

Golden end to a walk

Carved from a colourful history rife with piracy, sultry Caribbean heat, with fusions of African, indigenous and European culture, Cartagena is Colombia’s living, breathing and pulsating museum. Absurdly photogenic Heroic City rewards even the laziest of travellers. Colour splashes every corner, balconies overflow with blossom, and energy seeps beneath the ancient wooden doors of hotels and restaurants along the myriad of cobbled streets.

This tour takes you through the old town into the Plaza de los Coches. Your guide will divulge the myths and legends, histories and stories of Cartagena from ancient times up to the present. From the Plaza San Pedro Claver with its stunning church you walk to the Plaza Bolivar. Cartagena is steeped in history and it's a delight to stroll the streets with your own personal guide. Last stop on the tour is the fascinating Gold Museum.

Horse & Carriage Historic City Evening Tour

Saddle up for supper

There are few things more romantic than an evening traditional horse and cart ride along the cobbled streets of Cartagena´s old town, winding along the lanes with colonial buildings rising around you spilling their balconies of flowers in a cooling Caribbean breeze. As you sit in the back of this historical form of transport, you will see a different side of Cartagena as the city comes alive.

Afterwards you sit down to dinner at the restaurant Don Juan in the Historic Walled City. This is one of the best dining experiences in Cartagena. With its light and airy ambience and some wonderful choice dishes the restaurant is a high point to eating out in the Historic Centre.
