Excellent Salamanca Tour with Joana

My wife and I had the pleasure of taking a Highlights and Hidden GEms tour of Salamanca with Joana. She had great knowledge of the town’s history and culture and explained this in an organized and easy to understand way. Her English is excellent. She gave us a list of recommended restaurants at the start of the tour and pointed out many of them Along the way. Above all, Joana is sweet and kind, always smiling and she took very good care of us. Highly recommended.

Interesting historical city, best viewed with a private guide

Our guide was excellent, not from Salamanca himself but loves the city and has spent time getting to know it. In 2 hours, he showed us the main sights and then we returned later to go to the museums, up the tower etc in our own time. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour.

Mohamed was punctual at my hotel, had a clear plan, not a local but knows his stuff, had prepared really thoroughly so loads of information, and was excellent company. A very professional job, and a really good morning!

The preparatory contact with the guide worked very well, nice educated person with good German skills. She was able to adapt well to our wishes

Lovely way to walk round Salamanca and see the sights with a local.

Joana has lots of local knowledge and we really enjoyed it.
