COVID-19: The rapid worldwide spread of COVID-19 has disrupted several travel plans. We’re here to help you. Learn about our last-minute cancellation policy, where you can find information tour and attraction closures in City Sightseeing destinations, and our updated voucher policy here.
Cartagena de Indias is perhaps the ultimate city of contrasts. The incredible old town is a living reminder of Colombia's colonial past, while Bocagrande, the modern part of the city, shimmers like Miami on the shore. With a Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour you'll be able to discover both sides of this fantastic city and the addition of an entrance ticket to the amazing, almost impregnable Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas makes this City Sightseeing tour the perfect combination.

    Description

    Three-hundred years ago Cartagena de Indias was the main port for the Spanish colonies of Central and South America. The treasures of the Americas flowed through here en route to Europe and the spectacular old town was built with the profits accrued from this transatlantic trade. Hop off the City Sightseeing bus at the Torre del Reloj, which stands over the main gate to the walled old town. Pass through the ancient arches and wander through the colonial streets of the city’s near five-century-old historic centre.

    Hop off at the grandest and most impressive colonial fort the Spanish ever constructed: Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas. Even Francis Drake who tried to take the city on the orders of Queen Elizabeth I failed to take the fortress. Your City Sightseeing combination ticket includes admission to the castle, so you’ll get to tread where Drake never could! Plus, with your audio guide, you'll learn all about the history of this iconic monument.

    Another great place to hop off our tourist bus is the Casa Museo Rafael Núñez, named after the 19th-century president of Colombia and poet who lived in the beautiful colonial mansion that today houses the museum. Then replace colonial architecture with towering skyscrapers as you head to modern Bocagrande on the City Sightseeing bus. This neighbourhood is home to the Centro Comercial Plaza Bocagrande so if you're in the mood for a spot of shopping, then this is the perfect destination for you.
