Very relaxed, nice tour cycling around monument mall. José was a considerate and kind guide, taking care of the group. He provided short information about the monuments before we could explore on our own (7-15 min.per monument).

What could be improved is the guide's microphone. You can't hear very well behind the bus. We liked the explanations of the monuments.

It was amazing!! With the guid Jacinto Rodriguez🙌🏻🙌🏻 He is a very friendly and nice guy!! I would recommend!!!!! Book the trip:))

Everything went well, departure on time, very good guide and the driver too
