The tour was wonderful. However, I booked an English speaking tour and it was actually in Spanish. A very kind gentleman on the tour named George (Jorge) was so nice to explain everything to us in English. He was a lifesaver! The tour guide Patricia was also wonderful, but she couldn’t possibly do both languages in the amount of time we had. Still great experience!

Prefer an English tour rather than Englysh Soanish however can understand not always convenient We has visited few days before and Clara showed such passion and this visit also great guide who wonderfully included us in lunch bookings The lunch, waiter excellent Wine and tasting informative and great paring

Lucia our guide was very good and knowledgeable We waited 35 minutes at the meeting point that was on our tickets, finally received a call, we were at the wrong meeting point. An email should have been sent. We received the email the day after, seems someone switched off before items were sent!
