All was very good! They picked us up at the indicated time, the very friendly driver, they had a guide in Spanish and English, it was super good because at the time of booking, I forgot to change the English language to Spanish, ask the guide if I could change to Spanish and he said yes. I liked Troy, more than anything, its history. It is small but very interesting.
