We really enjoyed our tour with Andres - he was very knowledgeable and friendly, and altered the standard tour to show us an area of town we were interested in! He finished our tour in just over 2 hours and your website says it is a 3 hour tour.
Claudia is an excellent guide--great familiarity with the city, extensive knowledge, behind-the-scene stories, knowledge of lots of people in Cartagena.
Our guide was friendly but he basically walked us around the town and provided very little history, context or insights unless we asked. At several points there were free tours going on and their guides were doing a much better job explaining the history of Cartagena and the relevance of each stop. He has decent information and perspective when you asked him, but as a history and context provider he was disappointing.
