The 3 hours bike tour was amazing. Carolina, our guide, was interesting and super nice to talk to. She made the experience amazing. We went away from the center and saw some places that we wouldn’t have venture on our own. The parc and the beaches and the waterfront. Biking was very pleasant and Carolina was full of facts for everything we saw on our way. Would definitely recommend! Big thanks to Carolina
