Meeting Felipe was a joy and a pleasure. He was knowledgable and considerate. Driving us all over the country side, he explained the history and gave us everything we needed. Being "active seniors" he was alert to our needs for "facility" breaks and was helpful if there were areas where we needed a "hand". My husband and I would give him the highest marks as a tour guide and as a professional.
