    Very impressive

    I am very happy that we chose the tour. Apart from bypassing the long queue, our guide's explanations were extremely interesting and were conveyed in a humorous way. The painting of the dome is exceptional, it could (and may also) stand there for hours. The view from the top is fantastic, the ascent is good with average fitness despite the heat.

    A great professional guide

    We thought the tour was in Spanish, anyway between our English and desire to put the guide with their buenisimas explanations compensó.Otra time please stay clear language that is going to give or if possible that this is offered in two languages, the guide helps us a bit because he speaks perfect Spanish, but English speakers do not seem to like to share them with the guías..cosas of false moral superiority ...
