Waste of time

This is likely for people who are either immobile or just don’t want to walk Being in the van does not allow you to take good pictures and they will take you to a souvenir store , we were stranded there for over an hour when I decided to leave . Don’t bother with this tour Just take the hop on /hop off Turi bus

They had me sit in a hotel for good 10-15 mins before their van arrived there. So tour started at 10am and it was not 4 hrs tour as it was supposed to be according to GetYourGuide. Just showed around 2 places in all. One was Cathedrals and Presidential Palace which are side by side. Second was a market, which was more of a marketing stunt. The guide did her best to explain everything, she was friendly and answered all questions, so had a good time in the trip; 3 stars for her efforts only. The $26 (US) paid for such a small trip however, are too much and wasn’t worth it. One can take an Uber and visit these places for around $8.

Enjoyable tour

I was pleasantly surpriced of how much was included in the rate. This was a fullday city tour with a kind guide (José), Entrance to Presidents palace and Etnographical Museum . The tour requires a lot of walking. And what an amazing city it is. Recommended.
