    Muy buena experiencia. Los niños lo disfrutaron mucho. El guía muy paciente y educado. Lo único, este tour sale de plaza España que ahora mismo está "patas arriba". En algunos tramos, se circula en calles con coches y da un poco de respeto con niños pero el guía ha estado bastante pendiente. Gracias
