Alvaro is a real ambassador for Cadiz and his knowledge and love of his city comes across in his choices of taverns and his descriptions of the delicious tapas and sherry and wines. He is a considerate and charming guide and I highly recommend him We visited the oldest sherry tavern in Cadiz, the owner was delightful and I am now a sherry drinker too! We visited a number of different tapas bars sampling unusual and delicious local dishes in each - I learnt a lot about the fabulous local products. Hoping to visit Cadiz again soon and to do another of Alvaro’s trips to Puerto.

Very nice trip. Of course, in the morning, when you drive the SUV, you certainly won't see a lynx. We didn't have those expectations either, the rest was interesting. We saw some birds and of course staying by the sea was also a highlight.

I gave it to my parents and they loved it, Begoña, who was my guide, seemed charming to them and explained everything very well and very pleasant. All a success the gift!

Miguel is very friendly and a fun companion. Many thanks and all the best. The tour should start earlier to have a chance to see animals

Good surprise, it's not just the seaside, the visit to the city and the break in Jerez are perfect.
