We were a group of 3 people, who thoroughly enjoyed the private city tour. The guide was informative and kind. The vehicle was air conditioned and comfortable. Most of all, we avoided the crowds and were able to see the sights that we preferred. A. Venezia
Saw everything on the list at a comfortable pace. He could speed up and slow down quite perfectly. Ishmael, my guide, helped me with my Spanish and was great with his English. He respected me and other tourists we encountered and was funny, thoughtful, well informed, and likeable. He took delightful photos for me, explained interesting sites at view points, brought meaning to chapels and buildings, gave a great mixture of culture and history with time to shop, to move along to another view area. He verified my interests and arranged his tour to make me very happy. Really great time!
