Overall rating

(14 reviews)

The tour was very good and seen a lot which we alone could not have done. One recommendation I would suggest is a small portable step to use to get in and off the van which mainly ladies and people with some leg problems were struggling.

The tour acquires signs of uniqueness by taking into account the vehicle, driver and bilingual guide and transforms it into an afternoon of friends, laughter, knowledge and total delight. Does not accept any comparison.

Very nice. The guide Sebastián Benicio is very clear in showing and explaining, telling the story, very attentive.

Everything was very good, the guide was very good, the issue is always the time they give you to visit some places
