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!

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.
