Ana was awesome! Her knowledge of the city of Cadiz and its history was on full display. She walked us through multiple barrios and explained the timeline and history for each. She gave us ample time for photos and was patient with the abundance of questions we asked. I would highly recommend Cadizfornia Tours if you are in town and looking for a qualified guide service. We found them through a NY Times article from 2018 discussing the top 52 places to visit in the world. Google it for an informative read.

Chada was a great local guide. She walked us through Cadiz and shared so much information including history, how to properly pronounce Cadiz (and a number of other words) and she shared several places to eat and visit. Knowledgeable, fun and passionate! Chada provided a wonderful tour of Cadiz and we will be back! Muchas Gracias!

Anna is terrific! Energetic, knowledgeable and very engaging. She makes the city come alive. Outstanding in every way… plus a great source for lunch recommendations. Oh those chickpea and shrimp fitters….

Anna sold Cadiz to us in just 2 hours.. Knowledgable, enthusiastic and great fun to spend time with. She stands out as a guide.
