A Recent Review of this tour

One of the best walking tours I've ever taken. Victoria is totally knowledgable and more than that, she brings her big, lovely heart and passion to what she does. In addition to her historical adroitness, she also shares my lifelong devotion and appreciation of St. Teresa. What a joy to spend time with this great soul!
