Guide was great, the time was accommodated (we wanted it later). The Tour is a lot of Museums and the relevant buildings in the colonial, old Part of the City.

A great experience! From the first contact to the pick-up (personally by Angelo) to the very interesting, entertaining tour with our German-speaking tour guide Jose, everything was great. You can tell the Swiss management (Angelo is Swiss Dominican descent). Any time. Was fun!
