A Recent Review of this tour

Wonderful tour! Fernando took us to places we would have never explored on our own. Not only did he take us there but he provided us with the story behind what we were seeing. He also was very helpful in making sure we could catch the water taxi back to our hotel which was quite comforting. This is our 6th experience with Tour by Locals and we will keep coming back.
