    Our guide was outstanding and the best tour of the week. It started out with being picked-up by our guide and a driver right at the condo we rented. This is in comparison to the two hours we road around on a tour bus picking up other passengers when we went to Cordoba (and the two hours dropping everyone off). We had a lovely conversation on the way to Rhonda. We got to avoid the big tour groups and got to go into areas where they couldn't (such as the rooftop of a church with incredible views. We were able to have discussions with him about the little details. We got to go at our own pace and linger where we wanted. We learned not only the cold history facts, but about the culture as well. He was so friendly. He also made sure we had some free time. If you can afford it, go with a private tour. Well worth it.
