A Recent Review of this tour

Alois was a wonderful guide and host. We walked through many easily-overlooked corners of the Le Marias neighborhood and learned a great deal about the history and culture of this unique place. Alois also has great shopping and dining tips. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes! Lots of walking as there is a lot to see!
