What people are saying about Plaza San Juan de Dios, Cadiz

Great tour - for an hour, we got a lot of information about Cadiz. We were fortunate to be an all English speaking group so I think we got more information in the time than would have been possible in a bilingual group. Would recommend as an intro to Cadiz

As I was the only Englisch speaking Person in a Spanish group she took her time just for me to show me some really delicate extras and provided me some very delightful und useful tips for Cádiz! I was very happy about it - thank you so much!

We figured Seville was over an hour away, so we decided on staying in town at Cadiz instead. This tour was short, informative and sweet. The city of Cadiz provides all the charm you would expect from a coastal European town.

Very entertaining tour with interesting stories :-)
