My husband and I loved this tour. Our tour guide was Felipe and all I have to say is WOW! Such a great tour guide! The amount of knowledge he has, the entertaining way he explained the tour and his English are all fantastic! We also got lucky to have another couple and a guy touring with us (so the group is indeed very small) and they were so fun to be around so it gave our tour have a great atmosphere. I highly recommend! If you can request someone Felipe is your guy!

Nicolas gave us so much local information and history, that we relied on it for the rest of our trip in other locations. He took us to several interesting places, never rushed us, always answered our questions. He bought us an authentic churro and took photos of us. Gracias, Nikolas!

Absolutly great tour and great guide!!

My friend and me booked this tour and it turned out that we were the only clients. Guide had a lot of knowledge and was able to answer all kinds of additional questions. She gave us as well some more information and recommendations, what else we could visit after the tour. Definitly worth the money! Very happy that we did it!
