Very educative tour of the Walled City and Getsemani! Aldaberto makes the tour interesting and engaging throughout the whole time. He is amazing and will highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Cartagena for the first time

Walking tour of the walled city in Cartagena with Adalberto was fantastic. He was kind, knowledgeable and patient with us! Just a lovely man proud of his city for the most authentic tix experience!

Our guide was informative but it’s hard to follow some things because of all the people trying to sell you stuff

Friendly, funny, knowledgeable and patient tour guide. Wish the tour was longer.
