My husband and I were recently on a cruise that stopped in Cartagena overnight. We had been to Cartagena a few years back and had Claudia as our tour guide and knew we wanted her again.

I was on a cruise that stopped in Cartegena and wanted to do a private tour as we were traveling with a group of friends. I contacted Claudia via email and we made arrangements for our tour. Her directions to... More

Based on solid TripAdvisor and CruiseCritic reviews, I contacted Claudia in early October as I was planning private excursions for our Panama Canal cruise in late November / early December. She immediately responded to my email and we were able to negotiate a reasonable rate for a Cartagena city tour. She also sent me a detailed itinerary including the sights... More

I had one day in Colombia. I was in Barranquilla. I did not know about Claudia - found her on the internet. She was the best bargain in Colombia! We spent 3-4 hours talking. We walked and I learned so much about the city. If you know Claudia, you know her passion for history. She also knows the best places... More

What a fantastic tour! I was in charge of a family tour of seven. Another guide I had used previously in Cartagena was not available. I found Claudia and we all had a wonderful day. There was a lot of traffic and the driver Claudia used negotiated the traffic in an expert manner. Claudia was informative, interesting and a really... More

Claudia was terrific. We had a delayed start due to confusion about the meeting point but otherwise the tour was excellent. Claudia had a wealth of knowledge of Cartagena and gave us an overview tour of the old and new cities. She had a good, careful driver so was not distracted by traffic or finding somewhere to park. I would... More

We booked a private tour directly with Claudia many months in advance of the date, and assumed the tour would be with her, however when we arrived at the dock, she briefly greeted us, not even able to look directly at us, and made a hurried introduction to our "tour guide" a very old man named Willie whose command of...

My wife and I decided to take a private tour when cruising to Cartagena instead of purchasing the onboard tour and it was the right decision. We'd never taken a tour that only included the two of us with guide and driver and it was much better and close to the price of the cruise tour. We reviewed this tour... More

Claudia has an extensive knowledge of local history and a speaks perfect English. We were a group of twelve from a Princess Cruise, and had a comprehensive four- hour tour of Cartagena. Having a van with a driver enabled us to be dropped at one place and picked up at another, very useful on hot days and a tight cruise... More
