Excellent tour with Stan. He is very knowledgeable and you can see he has a real passion for the tours. The group was very small (only five other people) what made it an even better experience. Stan could answer all our questions without hesitating. Highly recommended. We do recommend to take an earlier tour so everything is still open. Because of covid regulations some places closed earlier.

Very bad tour, latero. I took the tour in my native language which is Spanish for more comfort and the person who did the tour could hopefully say a decent phrase in Spanish, very bad there, for this reason maybe it got slower than it should.
