I'm a tireless dancer
I am a lover of good friendships, cheerful, spontaneous, determined,
outgoing, responsible and committed to always showing the best of me through family, work, customers, friends and though the showing of my city and its surroundings.

A great way to end the last night of vacation. The bus had to make several pick-ups but it was great once we started rolling. Marlon was very hospitable and knowledgeable. I recommend this tour to anyone looking for a great time.

More tips

Cartagena is a very busy city, where there are people who do not understand much English, but they know they are looking for tourists, so many are going to impersonate Marlon, for this reason, I always wait for them in the statue of Pedro de Heredia, who located in the center of plaza de los coches
