Very entertaining . They told very interesting things that we did not know. The guide very good. I also had a problem with my flight and I didn't arrive on time to go to the excursion and they changed it the next day. I am very grateful for this service.

Santiago has a special magic and even more so at night, all the legends and stories that are told are very entertaining and it is very cool in the middle of the night, I recommend it.
