Whether your short on time, or just want a more personalized tour Duran Duran will be your best option in Cartagena! Gracias Duran Duran.

Sharing as much as possible is one of the best ways to live and have a good time. Without a doubt, time teaches us that teaching is learning and sharing is receiving. For this reason Gabriel Garcia Marquez became so famous, he shared his life and his experiences through his books, Thank you very much for visiting the beautiful city of Cartagena De Indias and for writing about it. Please, don´t forget to come back and please read Eve is inside her cat. Sincerely Durán Angel Eduardo

Excellent tour of main sights in Cartagena
We had a wonderful private tour, Duran Duran is very knowledgeable and was an excellent guide taking us on a tour of the city. It was great to learn so much about the history of Cartagena and his passion for Garcia Marquez added an extra dimension to the tour. Would highly recommend.

Learned to much about history and culture
Jul 2019 • Couples
My husband and I booked this trip on Trip Advisor and everything from the beginning to the end was seamless. They emailed us the meeting instructions and were met by Angel. Angel gave us so much information about Cartagena and Colombia, going into details and it's rich history and diverse culture. The walking pace was perfect and the stops at the location were filled with so much detail. Angel is very interactive and made sure to stop for questions. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to not just pose for pics with the sights, but also those who are interested in learning so much about the beautiful people of Colombia.

Wonderful Experience for Our Entire Family
My wife and I visited Cartagena with our two children (ages 7 and 9). Angel Duran organized and led a fun and exciting walking tour of the city on our first day. The kids got to see the Naval Museum and then walk through the streets of the old city with Senor Duran sharing stories of the city’s history. On our second day, Angel took us by car to the fortress, La Popa and the market.

We were very fortunate to have such a knowledgeable and engaging guide through Cartagena!

Taxi & walking tour
Nov 2018
Did not schedule the tour with the cruise line as we have had good luck hiring a driver to site see. We left the boat and there is a beautiful garden area with birds, deer, ant eaters, parrots and nice gift store. We left this area and were met by guys selling trips as usual. Negotiated a price with a taxi for $60.00 for two hours. Said would take us on a walking tour of Old Cartagena inside the walls. The guides English was ok. Had a hard time understanding him, but enough to figure things out. First stop was a Fort. Very impressive, but once outside the door, we had people trying to sell us all sorts of junk, and they were very persistent. Our "guide" knew them all. We did buy some things, but once you buy, others start coming. We pushed to leave. Got into the city, he explained things and where we were which was nice. Once we reached a certain point, he said we would get out and spend an hour walking. Beautiful area and history, but every step of the way, we had people trying to sell junk. You can negotiate if you want to buy. It became obvious to us, he knew the people he would allow close to us, and tell others to go away. He was also pushing us to buy. Think he was getting a cut as he would encourage us to buy from one and not the other. Was getting irritating and we did not feel he was providing us any protection from the vendors. It was not scary, but frustrating. My wife wanted to go to some shops and the guide got mad because she wanted to shop a bit in the stores, which we told him up front. His idea of shopping was different from hers. We picked up coffee and a few other things. We kind of expect some of this, but the guide was definitely in on it. It was a beautiful area. Got some history. Negotiate up front and bring small bills.

This Tour Enhanced Everything About Cartagena
Jun 2018 • Couples
Duran was remarkably knowledgeable about the city, perhaps because he's been giving tours there for 20+ years! We learned all about the architecture and history of the city and he taught us things about the buildings that informed everything we saw in the week following. He's fun and entertaining and it was so enchanting that we booked another tour -- to the Planeque village -- that we'd highly recommend. His wife also does an amazing cooking tour that begins in the bustling local market. Five stars -- this made our Cartagena experience.

Highly Informative Tour with a Knowledgeable Guide
May 2018 • Friends
I could not imagine a better way to get an authentic introduction to the rich history, literature, and architecture of Cartagena than through a walking tour of the city with Angel. He is very knowledgeable, articulate, passionate about his City, and makes an attempt to provide an objective perspective of its colorful, yet at times gruesome, history. I would highly recommend Angel as a guide to anyone who wants to go beyond the tourist veneer.
