Our guide Miguel was very fluent in English, very knowledgeable with a great sense of humour and the whole place impressive, beautiful and atmospheric. We went back to the plaza the next day for more photos and a very enjoyable carriage ride along the same route we’d already been.

It was a great experience for me and my family. The motor coaches were comfortable. The side excursions were very nice. A lot of walking on uneven surfaces. Wear good and comfortable shoes are.

Absolutely fantastic!! Amazing time had by everyone and the tour guides were super friendly and made the experience for us all. Recommend this to everyone! You won’t regret it

The tour was really amazing especially AlCazar. Lorena is an amazing guide, she made it really fun and answered our many questions. You are lucky if you get Lorena as a guide.
