My time with Carlos was worth every single cent of this trip. A consummate professional and quite friendly, Carlos completely made my trip incredibly smooth and enjoyable. He is such an asset to the ToursByLocals brand and, above that, a great guy. I cannot recommend Carlos highly enough. A great experience.
