    Was a good experience pretty expensive for Colombia. If looking for a party scene not really this. More of a couples retreat but still had a good time.

    The tour was a great deal of fun! Wish the snorkeling was a little longer, was great to be in the sparkling Caribbean waters. It was well worth it - only 13 on our boat and we all had a great time. I didn’t rate it a 5 because there was no hotel pickup and it took a long time to leave the pier. I would definitely recommend this tour.

    You will stop by 3 different beaches, and will have the chance to take some great pictures, and on the last beach you will be able to connect with some less fortunate locals who are really genuine people, I ended up playing soccer with the kids, really great experience! And if you ask the guide, you'll be able to speed up for a bit!

    This was a great tour! The lunch that was provided was tasty. With multiple options. The only bad part was waiting to board

    A fun experience, a bit random but overall enjoyable.
    The pick-up was a little late but the guide for the day Luisa kept in touch to let us know. She was also very friendly & speaks good English.
    The lake sadly wasn't pink for our visit, they explained that is very weather dependent due to the conditions required for it.

    The volcano was interesting, is not huge & you do end up in it with site a few people so can feel a bit cramped though not too uncomfortable.
    The massage was better than expected, the wash in the lake was, weird but understand that they do this as a way of gaining tips as this is a source of income for the locals. You are not obliged to have a massage or be charged by someone, you just need to make that clear beforehand.

    The overall tour was good. Let's start with our tour guide Jesus and Luis, they were great and made it an awesome time for us. They were funny, informative, and helpful. We absolutely loved them. The Volcano itself was a cool experience but it was crowded and a bit unorganized. We spent more time picking up people then we were actually at the Volcano. Jesus did inform us that we were only going to spend 30 minutes at the Volcano and that's okay, but we didn't know we were going to spend the 1st hour of our day just riding around in a bus and waiting for people.

    Overall, I would say it's a good and cool experience.

    We traveled as a family of four, my kids are older, 17 & 20. We had an amazing time! When I read the reviews before booking the trip, I was a bit hesitant about the speedboat ride, but truly it was actually a fun ride. The tour guide, Alex was enthusiastic and kept us informed. Lunch is at the last stop around 2, so be sure to either take snacks or try to order something to eat at the first island (where they give you the welcome refreshment). It's definitely more fun if you get to know the other people on the boat with you so come ready to socialize and relax!

    This was an absolutely incredible tour! The mud baths were incredibly relaxing and the pink sea was very interesting. Going at this time was key - there weren’t any other people there while we were. Gilberto was an incredible guide as well, he spoke perfect English and educated us throughout the whole trip. Overall amazing experience!

    The tour was better than expected. Camilo was an excellent English speaking guide. He had tons of interesting historical facts of various areas of the city. He was personable and made the tour fun. He even helped my wife with her Spanish. This tour was well worth our money and I would recommend it to everyone especially newcomers to Cartagena.

    José picked us up at the hotel for a drive of just over an hour. Indeed, no more boat trips, as 7 years ago a bridge was built.
    The playa blanca is long and full of restaurants and entertainment services. José and his crew operates La Española with a welcome drink for all tour participants and beach life with enough chairs in the sun and in the shade. The waves are relaxing, but be careful with the rocky stones on the shore line. Lunch exceeded our expectations. And good drinks are available.
    Mid afternoon return to Cartagena. The traffic jam, regrettably, is unavoidable. But after all, we spent a nice day on the beach.

    We had a great day with Hilary our guide. The beach restaurant was quiet and perfect for a relaxing day. The food was amazing. It was a very pleasant experience. Worth the money and time when you are in Cartagena.

    The experience was great. However, I wish they had someone who could translate to English. The vendors were annoying. The food and drinks were good. It also would've been nice if they had a bigger van to transport. We were full to capacity

    The aviary is a must see if your into wildlife and in cartagena! the birds are beautiful with vivid colors and lively behavior. Some of the birds and other animals even roam around the grounds freely (so if you're bringing children keep an eye on them). The beach is also amazing the water is very blue and there is a lot to do. The food is decent and the staff is nice. Pick up is between 6-7 am and you leave the beach at 2 pm. In my opinion this is a little over priced, at the time we went it was $97 and that included transportation, a "guide," lunch, and access to both the aviary and the beach. We went to the same beach spot for a full day experience for $60 and that included all the same things but the aviary part. Our guide didn't walk through the park with us and since everything is in spanish it would have been nice and would of then justified the price in our opinion. Still it was a great experience. Also we missed our pick transport because of an issue with our Airbnb and the operator was super accommodating and still let us participate as long as we got our own ride to the location.
