    Tour discovered a little by chance, it turned out to be a gem that made us discover not only historical anecdotes, but also places and routes that surely we would have missed. Congratulations to our guide, Mery, available and very well prepared. Absolutely to be recommended

    The tour around the city was very interesting and even longer than expected. The girl who guided us was very knowledgeable, kind and willing to answer all our requests. A beautiful experience that helps to understand the spirit of the city well and to discover many curiosities, otherwise difficult to grasp.

    The guide was gentle, but in the end it was a chase. Too quick to appreciate the places and little historical and cultural information received
