The experience was completely available to wheelchair users with the exception of some levels of the Roman theatre. Even the castle was totally accessible. The roman theatre and museum were amazing. We visited Cartagena on a Friday and a cruise ship had just spewed out it's passengers so the local bars and restaurants were very busy.

It was very easy to exchange the vouchers for tickets to the four venues. We started at the museum of the Roman theater. We enjoyed the lift ride to the top of the castle hill. It was a very enjoyable but very hot day, so we didn't walk to the forum. I recommend this foursome for a brief self-guided visit to Cartagena, Spain.

All great, very nice place, well distributed and then it ends with the theater view. Be aware the entrance is in the mayor square.

Easy to find no line during our visit and we were able to enjoy at our own pace. It was a wonderful experience.

Wonderful tour. Excellent self paced audio guide. Will be back
