Are you searching for things to do in Cartagena Colombia, the top sights to see in Cartagena or for the tours with best reviews in Cartagena? 

If you are visiting the City of Cartagena then you will find that the tours with the best reviews are the City Tours of Cartagena.

...potent bits of Cartagena History: For centuries and mostly during the Spanish Colonial era (16th - 18th century) famous French, English and American privateers, pirates and admirals like Robert Baal, Martin Cote, Laurens de Graaf, Francis Drake and Edward Vernon, constantly attempted to conquer the trade route strategically located City of Cartagena De Indias, but its fortification and mighty protectors like the Spanish Admiral Blas de Lezo heroically protected the rich City. Blas de Lezo lost an arm, a leg and an eye to protect the City of Cartagena, the gem of the Caribbean's. Apart from its trade routes and slave port activities, Cartagena's infrastructure was well developed and the City was made rich due to the stocks of gold stored in the City and the presence of Spanish royalty and wealthy viceroys who turned the City into a center of political and economic activity. Cartagena gained its independence (1811) from Spanish Rule to become Colombian but nobody will ever forget its Spanish founders and protectors. The tour will let you find out who founded Cartagena with his lover and native lady interpreter, and who liberated Cartagena forever? The wealthy colonial walled city is now an UNESCO World Heritage Site.

One of the most recommended and well reviewed tours to do in Cartagena Colombia is the Private Walking City Tour of Cartagena because through it you will be able to learn about, see and experience Cartagena De India's bloody History, lively Culture, Touristic attractions and the evident reasons why Cartagena, with its well preserved 16th century historical landmarks, colonial architecture, mesmerising cobbled streets, monuments and strong fortifying walls has been proclaimed an UNESCO World Heritage site since 1984. Many prefer referring to it as 'La Heroica', for the amount and size of attacks the rich and cultured city survived and won. TOP
