    Leonardo, our guide, was absolutely amazing. Very knowledgeable!!

    Leonardo, our guide, was absolutely amazing. Very knowledgeable!! Our tour was great. The one critique I have is that it was very difficult to find our guide. The meeting point instructions are vague and we had to walk up and down the street several times before we could find our guide. The guides for "Get Your Guide" were not helpful at all as apparently our tour was handled through a third party. Once we found Leonardo everything was great.
