Purchased the hop-on/ho-off tour through our cruise ship, as other passengers had pre-warned us about doing Cartagena solo, and they were SO right! $50 USD to see the fort there was more expensive than the entire bus tour, plus more $$$ to visit every church and museum in the walled city. Beggars and swarming street vendors everywhere, so if you... More

The Hop-On-Hop-Off sightseeing bus is one of the best deals in Cartagena, it’s easy to use, and it’s a good way to get an overall idea of the yin and yang of the city, from the historic walled nucleus to the local version of Miami Beach. You can board the bus at any of a dozen stops but here’s how... More

I have used many of the city sightseeing buses however this one was a little disappointing. It was easy to catch and not too expensive so an ideal way to visit the city. However commentary was only in spanish and it would have been nice to learn more about the city like on the other city sightseeing buses.

There is one bus that drives around the city and stops at 11 stops and continues around. So if you get off, the bus will come back around in 90 minutes which is usually plenty of time to get to see what you stopped off to visit. You also have 2 days to use the pass which is a nice... More

We booked the hop-a-bus tour through Celebrity. The buses were waiting for us an the ship's gangplank. Hop-a-bus offers a great ay to get an overview of a place before you dig in for some more in-depth touring. In Cartagena, one stop was enough...it is unbearably hot and humid. We did get off in old town, and enjoyed seeing the... More

City sightseeing Cartagena it was a tour bus around the city but instead of taking 30 minutes each bus to arrive the lady said it would take 90 minutes per bus. It took us 1 hour waiting in the first stop to get on the bus. This service might be the only one that has English and Spanish narration. This... More
