Cartagena: Party Boat to Cholon Island
- Duration: 7 hours
Great, all-day tour! I was a bit nervous about booking this because it seemed so long, but the day went by quickly. Our guide was on-time and we set off for the day with a group of about 6 others. I was glad that the van wasn't overly packed due to covid. All of the stops were really pretty and scenic. The town in El Penol was cool to see and had great views, climbing the rock was fun and the city of Guatape was so beautiful. Overall, the food was fine, but lunch was definitely better than breakfast. The only thing I would change was I wish we'd went to Guatape earlier instead of as the last stop. It was so cool there, but I was exhausted by then and didn't really have energy to walk around or shop. It was great though!
Esteban was wonderful! I wasn't super excited about this tour, but went because my husband really wanted to go. It turned out to be so much better than I expected. Esteban knew Everything about the history and shared different perspectives of the story, which I appreciated. I learned a lot and all of the stops were very informational. It also gave us a chance to see parts of Medellin we wouldn't have seen otherwise. Definitely recommend!
Our guide, I think his name was David, was excellent! Very friendly and positive! We had a great time in the tour. And pay for your drinks on the island stops one at a time. They seem to like to add on service fees, etc that can substantially increase your bill. This was the only complaint and I don’t fault the tour company for it.
This was the best trip we booked while in Cartagena. It exceeded our expectations. David was the most amazing host and guide throughout the process. The boat is a smaller speedboat, so if you are looking for larger, this would not be it. BUT, the trip is worth it and they care about you throughout the ENTIRE process.
It was perfect! Carlos is an excelent guide, he knows his coffee and will make sure to explain you everything you ever wanted to know - from cultivating the plant, to understanding the differences between various types. Lunch was great and the experience fun. Would recommend!
