Mariana was a real breath of fresh air for our group. We had a challenging itinerary that needed guidance so we could accomplish all of our desired venue visits, and Mariana struck just the right balance between moving us along and allowing us time to absorb the places we visited. She even provided us true local experiences by a visit to her own neighborhood and taking us through some local areas which tourists don't usually get to visit. It was an outstanding visit for everyone in our group.
