This is the ultimate in-depth private tour of Cartagena, a historic port on the Caribbean Sea and arguably Colombia's most beautiful city. This private tour includes historic luxury accommodation, private touring with your own guide and driver and the best cultural and culinary highlights of this historic city.

During a private walking tour of the walled Old Town—a UNESCO World Heritage Site—stroll through picturesque cobblestone streets where colorful colonial buildings are draped with bougainvillea. Walk through Plaza Bolivar, a leafy square surrounded by colonial architecture, and perhaps catch sight of Palenquera women wearing vibrant clothing and balancing bowls of fruit on their heads. Visit the colonial-era Church and Monastery of San Pedro Claver, and, if desired, see the Palace of the Inquisition, an attractive building with a grisly past. Another day, venture with your private guide and driver to the Castillo San Felipe de Barajas, the mammoth fortress that protected Cartagena from invaders, and visit Convento de la Popa, a monastery on the highest point in the city, for panoramas over Cartagena and the harbor. Also enjoy a private rum and chocolate tasting. If desired, Artisans of Leisure can arrange additional activities such as a private food tour or shopping for local designs, crafts and fashions at upscale boutiques. One evening, enjoy a private dance lesson to learn salsa, cumbia or other local dance moves.

One day, enjoy a private excursion to San Basilio de Palenque, a town founded centuries ago by escaped slaves that retains its unique, UNESCO-listed Afro-Colombian culture.
