Great guide, knowledgeable and clear.

February 8, 2020

The guide was great and the tour very pleasant only an error occurred and the reservation was made with an Italian guide instead of English and it was not possible to change.

January 9, 2020

Out of ignorance, we got lost and we were late, it had already begun. We could still enter, we found the guide and told him what had happened to us. We knew we had lost the opportunity to guide. But the Lord very badly replied that we could no longer join him. Answer that we had very clear. We minimally wanted to stay close and listen to the explanations, but it made it very clear that our presence bothered him and we decided to move away and joined another group from another Spanish language company that was very friendly with our presence. I will think again the next time I have to hire a guide. Know how to understand our unfortunate situation. Greets viviana suarez
