Diego was just a hoot to have as a guide hahahaha he has a very easy-going personality and makes sure everyone can hear him at all times, makes sure the group is always accounted for (we had kids and umm...some elders) so that's good hahaha I thought it would be a serious walking tour where the Old Town was explicitly discussed but well, what we had wasn't too bad. The first half was about the main plaza in front of the cathedral and of course, the history behind all that there is to see from there. We then went around the cathedral discussing how the city was more or less built around it and how it has grown to the size it is today. The last part of the tour was for inside the Cathedral so the museum and the main Cathedral itself. I'm not normally a fan of tour groups since a lot of information can get overlooked but at the same time, I have to give it credit for presenting the information in the way that they do- humor, debunking myths, and all. :)
