This tour mixes sightseeing with a party on wheels. It takes place on a chiva, a colourfully decorated open-sided bus that has become a symbol of Colombian culture. While onboard, you’ll dance in your seat to traditional Afro-Colombian music and enjoy an open bar. The tour takes you through Cartagena’s Old City, which is overlooked by a hilltop fortress. You’ll stop here for photos, before carrying on the party through the city’s old gates. Along the way, you’ll catch a glimpse of landmarks like the iconic yellow clock tower, and the bronze statue of an indigenous woman who helped the Spanish conquest of Colombia. In the tourist area of El Laguito, you’ll stop for a dance to vallenato – a Colombian folk music that’s accompanied by an accordion. Before heading back to the ship, there’ll also be the chance to grab some souvenirs at a former dungeon that’s now a marketplace.
