It was great to see another side of Cartagena. Highly recommend this tour. For improvement, I would just suggest spending some more time in themarket and asking us if we wanted to buy anything there. I would have bought lots of things to support the locals! Only small amount of time Spent in the actual market. I would skip the 30 minutes spent to listen to the music in the shop and listen to it within the actual market instead. And maybe a little more explanation of the food. Thanks for a great day though. Jesus is great!
