Luis was onze Tuk Tuk chauffeur en gids door de oude stad. Heel veel weetjes -.Luis spreekt perfect engels . Hij is heel geduldig en heel vriendelijk. Wij hadden een heel leuke namiddag door de oude stad met vele stops en uitvoerige uitleg. Luis wachtte geduldig op ons toen we van de prachtige Palheiro tuinen genoten. Een top aanrader : Luis en de Tuk Tuk trip.
