Friendly helpful bus driver made sure we got the best deal we were entitled to. Head sets & map provided. Great dialogue along the whole route. Highly recommend this to visitors.

Always find these bus tours a good way to get a feel for a place and check out where you would like to spend more time - actually most interest is in the main centre and shopping area so didn't find it as interesting as some

Very deceiving. Driver unfriendly and made us get off bus at end. We were told we could stay on to see the ALL sights that we missed the first go round. It is NOT worth the time or money!!

Always try to get on a city tour bus if new to the area. Gives a good view of what's where. This wasn't disappointing. Earphones were great and volume worked really well. Coming from someone hard of hearing that says enough. Gave really good information on different aspects and interests around the city. Would recommend

Having travelled on tour buses in other cities, I have found this a good way to learn about places quickly whilst visiting for a short break. The Cartagena tour bus was very disappointing, we would have been as well just catching a normal bus into town. My headphones didn't work so I had to share with my husband, the commentary... More

I couldn't hear the commentary very well over the noise of the engine, so I missed out on some of what we were looking at. You don't see any must-see sights, but good for a general look around the city.

The bus stops at the Port area well signed and at an information kiosk. 7Euro for the tour that takes about 40mins. You are given earphones by the driver and the guidance is given in four languages. English, French, Spanish and German. An informative tour with a couple of stops to see any sights and jump on the next bus.... More

The sound quality of the headsets wasn't great as the music between commentary was much louder than the commentary and frequent adjustment of the volume was required! Not very many stops to get off and do things, however i found the tour interesting as it allowed us to see different parts of cartagena that i had not seen before. Good... More

If you are visiting here for the first time these buses are very helpful once you are on it you soon realise that you could have walked to most of the places, having said that the bus ride was fine and we found the staff at the ticket office very helpful
