We absolutely loved this tour. Such a great way to get to know the city and its history, plus living the dream to cycle around "la Heroica" in very comfortable bikes. Don Duran Duran was the best tour guide! He was very kind, friendly and fun! He would check up on us constantly, stop for photos and be open for questions all the time. It was not just any other tour. He would give great insights into Colombian literature and history.

It was a very pleasant experience, Mr. Durán Durán was always aware of the people who were on the tour, the bicycles were very comfortable and very well maintained. The description of the tour corresponds to what was experienced. I learned new things about this beautiful city, the schedule for the tour is very optimal, there is not so much sun and it is comfortable to ride. The attention in the premises was also very warm. I totally recommend them !!!

I had a lot of fun on this tour. We biked up the ramparts, went through a park and saw a sloth ( or "lazy bear" as our guide called it ) and navigated through Getsemani and the old city with the help of our amazing guide ( i think his name is Jean Peare , and he is fearless). Biking in Cartagena is not for the faint of heart as cars dont stop , ever, and pedestrians will never ever move out of your way no matter how many times you ding at them.
