Owner description: You rent the bike, we add the guide! ​​Just contact us to book a free biking tour and enjoy discovering each corner of Cartagena old city! We provide you with an urban style bicycle and a helmet for $40.000 COP for two hours - but also check our website or Facebook for a discount! The tour will be led by a local bilingual tour guide who will share full information about the old city. It is important to notice that our team of guides do these tours for free and won't charge for their time but we appreciate when you leave us a tip at the end of the tour into the "happy box". It's necessary to book in advance by email or WhatsApp and arrive 10-15 minutes before the departure time of the tour at the meeting point in the old city (Getsemani, Plazuela del Pozo, Carrera 10b #25-67). ​Our tours are almost like private - the groups are max 12 people! Let's bike!

To begin exploring Cartagena this is a highly recommended tour. You actually pay to rent the bike and tip the tour guide at the end. Although it is a 2 hours tour it is not tiring at all as there are plenty of stops to take pictures and our tour guide José provided lots of information and interesting facts about the city!

As mentioned in other posts, the tour isn’t free as you have to pay for the rental of the bikes which is 500,000-400,000 per bike. However, our guide was really knowledgable, we learnt lots about the city and its history and it was a great way of seeing lots of different parts. They offer the tour in different languages too. I’d definitely recommend it and worth the cost for over 2 hours of tour.

Hello! Thank you very much for leaving a review!
We are really happy to hear you recommend us and had a great experience!
Just one explanation: we charge for the bicycle rent $40.000COP (aprox 10USD) and the tour is free, this is so, yes. Happy to hear you say it's worth it! Gracias!

Just the four of us, father and son plus two adorable New York girls we met as the cycling began. Very easy tour on largely flat surfaces with an excellent guide who tailored his presentation to suit our sense of humour. Even persuaded him to sing the Colombian National anthem which apparently is the third best in the world after the French and (suprisingly) Scottish! Highly recommended

The guide was excellent. It was a way to get some history and see more of the walled city. It was very hot out, so dress for sweat.
