Your private excursion transportation and guide will be waiting for you just outside your ship in Cartagena to get you going on your fun day. The guide will give you information, history, and stories about Cartagena, its culture, and its people.

Your first sightseeing excursion stop will be at the top of Cerro de la Popa where you will have a 360-degree view of the whole city of Cartagena and the countryside surrounding it. Then you will head to San Felipe Fort, which was designated as a World Heritage Site. This historic fort helped protect the city from invaders and pirates who were after the treasures the Spanish had plundered and stashed away in Cartagena.

You will also see some traditional neighborhoods including the famous Getsemani area. This is where the slave quarters used to be and is now the most traditional neighborhood in Cartagena full of locals. The Old City, as this area is also known, has narrow streets and open plazas. You will also stop at Plaza Santo Domingo to view the famous sculpture by Fernando Botero, La Gordita, Plaza de la Aduana, Plaza de Bolivar, Plaza de Santa Teresa. Please let your Cartagena cruise excursion guide know about specific sites you would like to visit on this excursion.

On the must-see list is your next private shore excursion stop at the Gold Museum where you will see the many pieces on display dating back to pre-Colombian culture. There are numerous pieces of jewelry, pottery, and lithic stone.

You will have time to take a walk through Old Town and stop to try some famous Colombian coffee, shop for hand-crafted items, leather goods, antiques, or maybe even a Colombian Emerald! Your private Cartagena shore excursion guide will deliver you back to the cruise pier after your excursion is completed.

For private Cartagena excursion groups of 13 or more people, please contact us.

Katty was our guide - we booked a private (4 person) tour of Cartagena. She gave us a great overview and took us to many great spots in the Old City; pass by the house of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, the Heredia Theatre, the Cathedral, the Emerald Museum. All was good, and a good guided walking tour around town.

Very informative tour
     5/5  (Visited on October 2015)
We were met right at the pier and escorted to the parking lot through a macaw aviary. The itinerary was as advertised. Our guide, Danies (I'm sure I misspelled her name), spoke very good English and gave us knowledgable answers to all our questions in addition to very thorough overviews of the history of the sites we visited. She also gave us tips on the ins and outs of handling the ever-present street vendors. She really seemed to enjoy showing us the city, and even helped me with pricing the delicious alepa I had for a snack! Two big thumbs up!

The best way to see Cartagena
     5/5  (Visited on October 2013)
I was a little bit nervous venturing out on our own in Colombia but after talking with my wife, we decided to take the Private City Sightseeing tour. Our driver was waiting for us as we got off the ship and took us to the air conditioned van. I not sure exactly what I was expecting but was more than pleasantly surprised. Cartagena reminded me immediately of Miami with the very modern tall buildings and the beautiful beaches. Our guide, Roberto, was charming and spoke very good English. He was very knowledgeable and told us all about the history of Colombia and Cartagena. The old town area was clean and we felt safe the entire time. My wife and I both are so glad that we got off the ship and explored.

 I've been coming to Mr. Sancho's for over 15 years, It is one of my all-time favorite excursions. The coconut shrimp is to die for the garlic. Shrimp is to die for and mostly followed by as many beverages as I can toss back and then more shrimp lol
