Very nice tour. Exciting and interesting. Tour started late as the bus arrived late. After a while this young guide joined us. She is a very good guide. Made the whole trip interesting and exciting by her narration of stories behind each and every building. Walking with the group at night in those historical places was amazing.

La reserva la realizamos en línea y y el pago fue con Paypal, así que resultó muy sencillo. Arribaron a tiempo al punto de encuentro, al principio nos costó encontrar el punto exacto, sin embrago, después de llamar al número de contacto ya acordamos el lugar exacto. Andrés (guía) fue muy amable y presto a resolver nuestras dudas. Vivimos una chévere experiencia, muy divertida.
