His tour had to be one of the best personable experiences I ever had. Not only did we see all of the sites, but he also provided a personable experience that was full of information on the rich history of the city. I felt more like I was with a familiar friend than a tour guide. Since he was pretty friendly, we had the “VIP” experience. He even offered to take us to other places because we finished early. If you are looking for a personable, engaging welcoming expertise, then he is the place to be. We received a far greater experience than expected.

It was great! Camila was such a great tour guide with lots of energy… she did 2 languages simultaneously. Her bus was fun all the time and she kept us motivated. She gave us plenty of time to take pictures and do sightseeing.

excellent tour, well organized and very good lunch. The guide was very friendly and gave good advice for each point of interest on the tour and more.

An amazing tour with Camila being an amazing tour guide with loads of information that was shared along the way. 10/10 would recommend.

Short but nice! I would be more time in the stairs that they offer, because is one of the most beautiful places included in the tour
