L'art sans fin...

Relais assurés sur place par différents prestataires de visites guidées pour arriver jusqu'à la prise en charge des personnels de Get Your Guide (heureusement, car beaucoup de visiteurs sur place ; bienveillance appréciée). Ensuite, excellente prestation du guide qui n'a ménagé ni ses explications ni son temps proposé volontiers en fin de visite. Beaucoup de curiosités à découvrir et temps habilement géré par notre guide. Seul bémol, le moment du déjeuner qui est impossible (ou sur le pouce) ; ce serait bien d'être orienté sur place pour solution rapide et efficace (surtout sans connaissance des lieux). Une fois embarqués, il ne reste plus qu'à se laisser transporter dans l'histoire et les découvertes de ses richesses à chaque lieu abordé. Système audioguide (je le répète) très appréciable pour garder l'intérêt et le contact avec le guide (et le groupe aussi) au fil des visites. D'autres lieux abordés par le guide restent à découvrir ; je renouvellerai l'expérience avec Get Your Guide.

“Tour sólo en español” totalmente falso

El tour dejó mucho que desear dado que lo contratamos “sólo en español” y nos lo tuvimos que tragar en español y francés porque decidieron incorporar a nuestro grupo a cuatro personas francesas. Horrible. Casi 300€ de gasto de mi marido y yo para oír una frase inteligible y otra en otro idioma, un chasco, sobretodo cuando explicaban más en francés que en castellano y ni se molestaban en traducir las preguntas que hacían los franceses y las respuestas que les daban; nunca más. Ambas guías estaban hastiadas y faltas de aliento intentando explicarlo todo en dos idiomas cada frase que decían.
