I was lucky enough to have the tour guide all to myself. Maria was very knowledgeable and made sure to take her time in areas that required special attention. I will say that it was a bit chaotic at the meeting area so I would suggest arriving at least 15 mins prior to the start of the tour.

Wonderful! Borjas was a great and kind guide. He was knowledgeable and entertaining, and worked out great solutions for our mom on a walker. Our only advice would be to have the tour meet earlier than the beginning of our allotted the time in the first palace.

Javi was an excellent guide, friendly and really knows about hostory! Thank you fro this magical tour!

This was amazing, but a little more strenuous than advertised. I doubt children could do it.

Carlos was a good guide and very accommodating. It was a fun day out.
