Really good trip where we saw a lot of exciting places. But it would be nice to have a little more street names or points on a map. We occasionally had to go back and forth a bit to find the right path. However, we enjoyed the trip and would very much like to go on other similar trips in other cities.

Annika informed us very well and entertained us on the tour. Perfect mix of information and humor. And only so much that you could absorb it well in English, in your non-mother tongue. Thank you very much for that.

Great time had with Carlos our guide, the food & wine were superb… there was me , my hubby & Carlos.. so very personal guide. Would recommend this highly…

The guide has made this tour entertaining and enjoyable. It's worth it, I recommend it 100%.

Super guides and detailed explanations. Thank you.
