    Guide Elizabeth gave us a fun beach day
    Dan_M, Jan 2023
    What a fun day! The best part of our tour hands down was our guide Elizabeth. She was very knowledgeable on Colombian culture and the area. The beach was beautiful and the chairs were right on the water. Our guide made us feel safe and welcomed. She gave us space when we wanted some privacy and was always friendly and cheerful to talk to us. The driver of “El Carro de Amor” was very friendly. Can’t say enough good things about Elizabeth!!! Thank you!
    I would not recommend...

    I would not recommend this experience. Firstly our driver was 1hr 20min late - we were given no notice of the delay and spent a long time trying to find out what was going on. Then when we arrived at the beach the club was old, the beds dirty and there were none in the sun. It was also at the end of the beach so was used as a sort of pit-stop for all the beach sellers so it was very busy with lots of people around the beach beds constantly. You could not relax as constantly you were being constantly asked to buy items despite being on beds inside the club and there were people milling about beds the entire time. All beds very close together and cramped right on the water. It was also very loud. Nothing vip or enjoyable about the experience. Extremely basic service and not a relaxing and day on the beach.

    Good afrternoon Mr. Kerrie Rowan, as every time we communicate with you, we have apologized for the inconvenience we had with the first vehicle that would transport you throughout the tour. The vehicle had a small accident and could not make us the tour and arrive on time to pick you up, while we got another vehicle to meet you and this reached the hotel, accompanied by the traffic that generates the time in which we are, that caused delay. Understand that we are in high season in the city there is a lot of traffic. Due to this inconvenience that we understand caused inconvenience to you and your family, we gave you a discount on Viator. For the other inconveniences that afflict you I inform you the following, the props of the restaurant are not that they are old in that as you know they are beds, chairs, tables that are outdoors in front of a beach and of course they will show signs of abuse by the weather and by the utility they provide. They are not dirty; it is a very clean place that complies with all the sanitary measures required to provide this type of services. If you do a little research, we have just come out of a strong winter wave that greatly affected our entire Atlantic coast and for such reasons the sea is just beginning to withdraw from the coast to return to let us enjoy the beautiful beaches of this region. Also understand that this is a public beach and if it is true there are vendors who harass tourists a lot. On this point yes, we will try to make an improvement (thanks for manifest your uncomfortability, we are working on it) Again, I apologize for not having met your expectations. I assure you that we will take them into account to improve, because our only interest is the satisfaction of our customers. I bid you farewell but not before wishing you a happy New Year 2023. Cordially yours, ROCIO ROZO SOLANO Administrator
    Highly recommended!

    It was a great day trip, the set up for the day was great! Good food, perfect way to spend my 50th Birthday! Only thing I didn’t love was constantly being offered a service (massage and trinket sale)
    Beautify beach and good food spoiled by poor organization and overcrowding !
    Ronald_R, Mar 2022
    Pros: Beautiful beach and water, good, tasty lunch. Cons: No organization. From boats and jet skis landing in front of your you, overcrowding, vendors constantly trying to sell you everything from snacks, drinks, massages, jewelry and activities to unreliable transportation (pick up 2 hours late + return 30 minutes late waiting at a sketchy roadside bus stop).. the private beach options nearby are worth the extra cost !
    Response from Host, Mar 2022
    Thank you very much for your review of your recent stay with our agency. Your feedback is very valuable to us as we strive to improve each and every tour. We are very grateful for your comments about overcrowding, boats landing in front of customers and annoying vendors. It is something very difficult for us to control since it is a public beach and the locals usually work that way, however we are working to improve the destinations and conditions we offer to our clients. Regarding the delays with the private transportation we tried to pick you up on time but you were not at the hotel but in the last instance we were able to contact you by sending a private transportation assuming the cost of the same so we were a little delayed. Once again we apologize for the inconvenience caused, we are working on growing. Our main priority is to be able to offer quality and totally personalized services in quality environments. I hope I can convince you to change your mind to visit us again. With much appreciation, Trip Cartagena Tours.

    Our guide, Camille Dickens, was excellent. She explained everything to us. Also, she was very patient with me as I am not such a quick walker. The day at Playa Blanca was great! The food was great! Excellent tour. I highly recommend this tour.

    Hi. Thank you for choosing Trip Cartagena Tours. We appreciate you had a good experience with us. See you soon to offer you magical moments.
    Muy caro para lo ofrecido
    Fabian_S, Jan 2023
    Excelente el servicio de recolección y el guía, pero muy caro para lo que termina siendo, se puede decir que el club de playa es el “mejor” en instalaciones en la playa, rica comida pero lo normal, pero muy caro para lo que termina siendo
    Response from Host, Jan 2023
    Señor Fabian, le ofrecemos el mejor servicio en uno de los mejores sectores de Playa Blanca, guía de acompañamiento y en un vehículo privado climatizado, lo recogemos y lo retornamos al hotel en que los clientes se encuentran alojados. Tomaremos su valioso comentario, para seguir mejorando. Gracias
    Experiencia en Baru
    Angel_R, July 2022
    El servicio y la Transportacion fueron de excelencia. El trato fue uno muy bueno. La playa es excelente. El l único detalle negativo de Baru, son los constantes vendedores que por intentar vender, no te permiten disfrutar, pero por lo demás, todo estuvo muy bueno.
