Very enjoyable, fun and very complete. Excellent time management, exceeded our expectations, book with confidence, you will learn about the history of the city and its monuments. I recommend it 100%.

I loved all of this tour! Being a massive fan of architecture and culture I was very excited for this tour. The tour was done in English by a telephone like device and was very easy to follow.

The tour guide only speaks Spanish. Unless you speak Spanish, just go directly to the cathedral and buy a ticket directly with them

guide was happy to provide tour in English & gave us lots of information

I liked it all very much. I would be happy to repeat the tour
