Gostei do tour, mas pensei que fossemos entrar na livraria Lello. Sei das dificuldades, por causa da fila, mas constava a entrada no roteiro. Além disso, achei o passeio na vinícola um pouco corrido. No restante foi tudo muito bom. Adorei a guia Cláudia. Culta, simpática, atenciosa e apesar de não precisar, percebi que ela tem um inglês perfeito.

Very interesting and educational

In 4 hours we could see the most important sites of including Graham's Winery. We were only 4 people on the tour but they took the tour anyway. We entered the Lello Library and the Station and other sites we visited outside such as the Cathedral and the Torre de los Clérigos.
