A Recent Review of this tour

Rodolfo was incredibly knowledgeable about the history of the area and the mission. His knowledge of Art History as it relates to this building was complete and well presented. He was personable and easy to be with. We feel as though we have a friend now in the Loreto area and will call on him again.
