Our guide was very thorough and helpful. The transit with the bus and the lake cruise were very smooth. I hope we would be able to stay a little more on each place but that would not be possible if you want to see the most. Highly recommended

Victor was great. He was waiting for us on time and it wasn’t hard at all to find him. He gave a lot of very interesting details about the Cathedral. We enjoyed our visit a lot. It was worth it.
