It s a very informative tour of the city. Great time spent at the Canal. Unfortunately, there is no much chance to visit the Casco Viejo due to parking limitations. The trip on the Causeway is of not much interest. Just restaurants and shops. Should review what other interesting points can be better. The guide was excellent and the owners support unbelievable.

Gustova was a wonderful guide. He gave us lots of information as we went through the tour. He was pleasant and friendly and went out of his way to ensure everyone was getting what they wanted from the tour. I really loved the old city. Gustova was very knowledgeable and shared storeys about the buildings and the culture. I’m very glad I went!
