    Great guide. Very kind and accommodating. She spoke in both English and Spanish and made sure that every one is following up. We asked for vegetarian food and they ordered special pailla just for us. Great value for the price. The trip could use more cultural commentary but as it is now a great way to spend a day. Pickup and drop off were on time. Highly recommended
