excellent way to know in an efficient and comfortable way the different tourist places of the city; Carlos was a very friendly guide and knows the best spots to take the best photo. His Spanish is perfect for those Latinos who are eager to hear his language so far from home.

The guide was very nice, knows the history of all the places he took us to. He made sure that we did not run out of water. He drove us along narrow streets, showed us the best restaurants, warned us about dangerous places in the evenings.
