Javier is a great guide! He took us to places based on our interest and we were able to see and learn a huge amount about the City which we would never have learned had we not been in the company of an educated individual who obviously loves and is proud of his native City. He was fun to be with, knowledgeable, moved at our pace and pointed out the things a tourist would miss if not being with an experienced guide. It was my favorite moment of our trip and I would highly recommend Javier as a guide.
