About the tour

Located just a short cannon ball’s throw outside of Cartagena’s historic walled city, the Castillo San Felipe Fortress is hard to miss, and it is certainly a can’t miss activity during a visit to Cartagena. Built on top of a hill, this massive fortress was the largest Spanish colonial fortification on mainland South America.

I am Jorge Mondol – 36 years old, licensed and accredited tour guide and tour designer from Cartagena de Indias, Colombia. For over 15 years now I have specialized and worked in tourism in my native city.

I graduated in Tourism and Hotel Management and by combining my professional training with my own passion , I’m able to offer my guests tours that are both reliable and filled with genuine excitement.

All the tours are designed by me. I’m taking care of everything during the planning and before you confirm your final itinerary.

Jorge was a pleasant tour guide and very informative. He showed us the fort in Cartagena and gave us the history of the different countries that Columbia fought. He gave us great views of the fort as well as the area of Cartagena surrounding the fort. A lovely tour and tour guide.
