Cartagena, Colombia ? (Excursion Question for Panama Canal Cruise)

As I look at the excursions offered by NCL while in Cartagena, Colombia, there is no excursion to go to the 'Walled City' On Your Own.  The closest thing I see is an excursion entitled "Discover Cumbia Dancing and the Walled City".  Included in that excursion is an hour to an hour-and-a-half of free time.

 

Note to NCL:  Offer a "Walled City On Your Own" excursion, and you'll probably sell tons of tickets.

 

All of this said, is it easy and safe to walk to the "Walled City" of Cartagena from the cruise port ....  or is it safe and easy to find transportation to the "Walled City" of Cartagena?

 

Also....while we are on the topic....any good restaurants to recommend while there?

We easily (Oct 2022) took a taxi from the port to just outside the entrance to the Walled City and did the same when we returned. Easy to do.

Do you recall if the taxi accepted credit cards?  Also, no attempted scamming on the taxi fare, right 🙂
