A Recent Review of this tour

5 stars are not enough. This tour was perfect in every way and Francisco was outstanding. We were delayed by an unexpected local parade and a longer than usual lunch break, but Francisco extended the tour to make certain everything planned was included. He also had wonderful stories to tell us about the places we visited and took me to the best places for photographs because he knew that was an interest of mine.. I've had many tours by locals tours, and this was one of the best.
