Our guide, Rebecca, was awesome. She was friendly and easy to talk to as she gave us a tour of the Old Town. Rebecca suggested other places we should visit during our stay. She was also able to get us into the Diputación Provincial de Zaragoza for a free private tour of the casino library which was very special to see. We were very happy to have met Rebecca and had her as our guide. Two hours was just not long enough!!

The tour to Bardenas was great experience and our guide, Mikel, did an excellent job to explain the geographic background and historic information of the area. The highlight was certainly hiking with him through this amazing landscape.

So much fun, such interesting sites included in the game, such a good way to get the historic knowledge of Zaragoza. Totally worth the experience!

Very interesting, it is ideal to get to know the history and places that you would not discover by yourself. Everything in general

J'en avais assez de ne pas savoir quoi montrer à ma famille, alors j'ai trouvé ça sur la web et ils ont tous adoré!
