This hop-on-hop-off tour gets you to all the places you should see in Cartagena. The bus is open top, so careful when you see trees coming, they may hit you! The stops are well marked and the distance you do on this bus is substantial. Because you are high, you can even make good pictures

Nice way to see the city, but be aware that the buses and equipment are old. Sound system does not always work. English language did not work at all.

It is a good way to see Cartagena but it was somewhat disorganized.The starting point was changed because of a cruise ship arrival and we had to wait for the cruise passengers and then there were no seats.Some of the audio ports did not work. Best just look around the walled city as this is where it is at.
