Robert Lopez was SUPERB!!!!!! I had a very great walking tour with him. He was knowledgeable, personable, and took amazi g photos of my friends and I! If I can give him 10 stars I would! He definitely comes highly recommended and I look forward to referring him in the future! The tour itself was amazing and I enjoyed the murals, graffiti and art behind Getsemani! Totally worth the time!

Duran was excellent. He did a great job explaining the history of the city. The tour allowed us to view beautiful artwork as well as observe the artist showcasing their talent. He is also a nice guy which made the experience in Cartagena very pleasant.

We had a great tour with Sr. Duran. He is an experienced guide and very knowledgeable about Cartagena and its history. I would highly recommend him!

Beautiful streets in Getsamani. Would love to revisit and walk the streets again and enjoy the lovely views of the artwork, doors and balconies.
