A private tour from a lovely local, who has the knowledge and ability to share the most interesting stories about Cadiz - Not only of cinema, but also of history and architecture. He also had the patience to explain everything in Spanish, which I understand very well but yet struggle to speak. My warmest recommendations!

Good orientation to Cadiz and its historical importance in shipping. Marta was knowledgeable and friendly, and always had an answer for our questions. The camera obscura and the tower’s vantage point for a view of the surviving watchtowers Is amazing.

Francisco was very knowledgeable, flexible, supportive and he could answer questions even outside the theme of the tour. A real cadiz citizen, I really enjoyed his tour

Yolanda explained everything excellently we thoroughly enjoyed both tours .
