    We had the best time with Argeli on this tour! He was so animated and went above and beyond to give us a fantastic experience and incredible local food! He let us stop at a few shopping spots and there was a discount at all of the food places we ate at. One of the last stops we made our own mojitos and ate delicious mofongo. It was an awesome experience, everyone should do this tour!

    Itzel was a wonderful tour guide! She filled us with historical and cultural information in an engaging, entertaining way. There were just eight of us on the tour, all pleasant and fun people to spend a couple of hours with. We’re going back tomorrow to the spot where we had the incredibly delicious breakfast sandwiches to buy some coffee and guava paste. We’d highly recommend this tour, especially early in your trip. That way you have time to revisit your favorite spot or try a new one you noticed ed along the way.
