Cartagena: Hop-on Hop-off Bus Tour & Optional Attractions
- Duration options: 1 - 2 days
- Optional audio guide
This tour arrangement works best when the buses are fairly evenly spaced apart. One understands that various circumstances can result in 2 or even 3 buses being fairly close to each other. This "bunching" of buses was unfortunately common on February 11 when we took the tour. On the positive side, the tour allows a lot of flexibility for visitors to spend time at places of most interest to them. We did the full tour early in the morning then took a break until mid-afternoon and boarded another bus to visit San Felipe Castle and the Rafael Nunez museum. Unfortunately, we arrived at the museum just after it's closing time of 5 pm. No bus staff had mentioned this to us. Generally speaking, the staff were very friendly and helpful.
Great way to explore Catargena, only issue we had was that some stops did not have a Red Hop on Hop off Bus Stop sign so it was difficult to determine if you were standing in the correct area for hopping back on!
I was in Cartagena for 5 days, and the bus was the best way to move from one point to another as the stops are located throughout the whole city. As usual, perfect way to visit a city in a short time.
This is a great way to see the city. The only downside is that the bus routes in 45 minutes so if you exit for a stop make sure you plan to wait 45 minutes or more for the next bus
The staff was so polite, friendly and kept on coming back to ask if everything was ok. We had a great time and would definitely recommend this to anyone.
