Full description
Located on the Caribbean coast of Colombia, few places on Earth are as beautiful as Cartagena. Sightseeing in this astounding city is a hugely enjoyable experience, offering both modernity and history. There is something to suit all tastes. From beautiful architecture to striking monuments, there is plenty of inspiring sightseeing opportunities while on your City Sightseeing bus tour.

The city is a Spanish colonial port containing a spectacular walled old town, palaces, monasteries, plazas, and beautiful overhanging balconies. To the south of the town are Colombia's major seaside resorts, where you can enjoy excellent beaches and scuba diving opportunities.

Comfortable and convenient, the tour offers you the opportunity to remain on the bus tour for the entire loop, listening to the informative audio commentary, or to hop on and off at your own convenience.

Cartagena is famous for its fortress walls and its historical, brightly coloured buildings. If you opt for the appropriate ticket, you can also gain entry to the historic and truly magnificent Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas. This stunning structure dates back as far as the 16th century.
