This tour was awesome. Walters was amazing. He went above and beyond to make sure we we had a good time. He helps us with other things like the best place to eat, information about COVID testing for our safe return and well, he had answers for everything. Quite informative about Cartagena and its history. I couldn’t have asked for any better tour guide to learn about the city. We even got to learn about a town here that is called... lol I don’t remember. But it is considered a little Africa in Colombia because they have their own culture language and style. Quite beautiful. Thank you Walters la Grande... since your son has the same name like you. And he has great energy. I always gage by energy first.... which I had a great feeling. Am glad I decided not to cancel my city tour.

This is good tour so you can get an overview of Cartagena. You will go to many places from Bocagrande, San Felipe Fortress, Manga Island, La Popa Hill, Getsemani, and all the way to the Old City. The tour is flexible and can be catered toward what you are interested in. Thank you Walter for showing me many places in one afternoon.

Walter Jr was an amazing tour guide. I was solo and Walter (his father) came and personally greeted me with Walter Jr at my hotel. I felt very safe with Walter Jr and was impressed with how knowledgeable he was. I was debating doing a free tour but knew it wouldn’t be as good and I’m so glad I chose this one. Walter Jr took me all over the city from the Old City to Getsemani to Bocagrande. It was perfect! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone really wanting to know and understand Cartagena and Colombia culture in general.

Walter Jr did an absolutely amazing job with this tour!! He was personable, knowledgeable and gracious. He talked about his country with passion and I can tell that Cartagena is a place very dear to him. Any questions I had he answered, he is a wealth of knowledge about the culture and history of Cartagena. He got me to try a new fruit that I can not pronounce and he took all the pictures of me that I wanted. I have never had a better tour guide!
