    We booked a walking tour in Jerez and in Cadiz. We were lucky in both of them to have Ana as guide. While walking in the old centres Ana told us and showed us the history of Jerez and Cadiz. She loves these cities and can communicate it to her guests. Walking tour is the best way to get a first feeling of a city and in this case it was very successful.

    Anna was so enthusiastic!

    Anna described herself as a historian, and had a degree in history. It certainly showed in her infectious enthusiasm. She was ready early and we were the only 2 on the tour so set off. We didn't walk far but had frequent stops to hear all about the people, history and stories. When we were due to enter the Cathedral a mass meant it was closed. Anna phoned her boss and we decided to keep the tour going with an extra visit to the museum. SO we went up the bell tower, then into the museum, again Anna was so happy to tell us about things in there. Then she got us into the cathedral as it reopened. The tour went well over time. But it flew by. Well with the money. Thanks for adding so much to our few days in Cadiz

    Great intro to Cadiz!

    My husband and I really enjoyed the tour with Ana. It was just the 2 of us, so we had a private tour. She was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about introducing us to Cadiz and its history. We made a tour of medieval area and then went thru cathedral including crypt. Ended at market square. Wonderful being in tour of 3 instead tour of 30+ off the cruise. We then went on our own to sites in medieval area including amphitheater. Also ate at small tapas outdoor cafe. Afterwards took one hour on and off bus ride around Cadiz. Perfect day, much due to orientation tour by Ana.
