What People Have Said About Us

Ramona Gonzales

New York

''I cannot praise this tour or the company enough. From the very beginning my experience with This Is Cartagena was nothing but fantastic. I have never seen such excellent customer service from an international tour company. I would recommend any tour with TIC to anyone. While we selected the Real Cartagena and the Ceviche Tour I am certain this company goes above and beyond for all of their tours, just as much as these two. If we ever returned to Cartagena (which we plan to) we would sign up for a few more tours with this company until we have completed them all. I cannot praise this company enough. I owe our amazing experience to them.'' (Ramona Gonzales' feedback after doing the Ceviche and Real Cartagena tour)

Diana Smith

New York

''If you're looking for an impeccable experience while traveling to Cartagena, I highly recommend using This Is Cartagena. As a non-Spanish speaking individual, their site was easy to use and we booked our two excursions without any hiccups. We booked one trip in the wee hours of the night and were still able to take our early morning tour.

Now, the Real Cartagena tour was off the chain. This is reminiscent of a busy day living in NYC (think Chinatown). This day was the highlight of my entire trip to Cartagena. Highly recommended. You have to take this tour.

I am a people person and the employees of This is Cartagena seal the deal. I can't speak enough to how kind and protective, Carlijn and Christian were while they served as our guides. They translated for us, bargained for us, and ensured that we had a great time in Colombia.'' (Diana Smith's feedback after doing the Day to Paradise and Real Cartagena Tour)

Sherene Davidson

Washington D.C.

''We decided to go to This is Cartagena after being harassed by tour guides on the streets that just did not seem legitimate. One guy pointed to his "business partner" who was wearing a different company shirt than him, and the skepticism kept rising. So we went to the TIC office, and we are so glad we did! There were many options and the service was phenomenal. They wanted to hear about what we were interested in, and went from there. We almost did a ceviche cooking tour, which sounded cool. But ultimately decided on the Real Cartagena Tour and a day at the Rosario Islands. The Real Cartagena tour is an absolute MUST!'' (Sherene Davidson's feedback after doing the Real Cartagena and day at the Rosario Islands tour)

Sarah Story

Ogden Museum New Orleans

''This is Cartagena is an excellent trip organization/planning company. They went above and beyond to organize a 4 day itinerary for 27 art patrons from New Orleans in Cartagena. We ate at the best restaurants, saw some amazing art, and went to the Rosarios Islands on private boats for a day. Rainbow and his team are very professional, flexible and willing to do anything to make the trip a success. We had many changes in the itinerary and they were always willing to help with whatever we needed or wanted to do. He and his team were available to us the entire time we were there. They even helped organize individual outings for some of the group members. The trip to the Rosarios Islands is a must! It was so much fun to take a boat out, eat lunch and relax in the beautiful islands. I would recommend using this company to anyone that is traveling to Cartagena.'' (Sarah Story's feedback after doing a 4 day itinerary)

Lisa Laws

International Art Collector

"The Art Tour is a real treat for anyone interested in culture. The guide was an impressive fountain of knowledge and an absolute pleasure to listen to. A tour for travellers who really want to understand the history and culture of Cartagena.” (Lisa Laws' feedback after doing the Art tour)

Becky McSloth

New York Lawyer

"This walk was one of the highlights of our trip to Colombia. We visited and spoke with artists in their studios, entered art spaces that we never would have seen had we walked the city just on our own or joined a more conventional tour, learned about the contemporary art scene in Colombia and heard stories behind the street art found in Getsmani."
