A good panoramic view of the city and a nice tour guide. What I was missing was a little free time to look around in normal shops on my own. It was a tight, organized schedule C
The support was very long. We were put on 3 different buses. The tours were very interesting. We had requested the tour in French but the guide spoke very approximately
Interesting visit Excellent guide who masters many languages (English, German, French, Portuguese and of course Spanish)
