The tour was great, there was an employee speaking in Spanish and English about the attractions, in addition he was very punctual. It is worth mentioning that it is necessary to exchange the online ticket for a physical one, before the start of the tour at the local ticket office

A moment of relaxation, very pleasant, especially since the weather was superb. The welcome is cordial and the comments in several languages (including French) allow you to fully enjoy these magnificent views.

It is worth doing the bus tour and the two walking routes that it includes to get to know the city a little. The bus can do the full route or get off and on as many times as you want.

Very nice and non-binding experience. Excellent welcome and very pleasant tapas, excellent idea. Nice tour, excellent quality/price

Good treatment and punctuality in the departure and arrival of the excursion.
