Robert Lopez was SUPERB!!!!!! I had a very great walking tour with him. He was knowledgeable, personable, and took amazi g photos of my friends and I! If I can give him 10 stars I would! He definitely comes highly recommended and I look forward to referring him in the future! The tour itself was amazing and I enjoyed the murals, graffiti and art behind Getsemani! Totally worth the time!
