    It was just only us. our guide was really friendly. He took us to the market, I enjoyed a lot there. Fruits is amazing,delicious! I recommend that you take tours in the morning because the market close at 14:00.

    The worst guided tour I've done in my life. The price is high but it seemed interesting. But it has been quite the opposite. A guide that didn't explain ANYTHING !! He has only talked about his problems. Just arriving has already wanted to sell us a map for 5 euros and during the visit it has taken us to 3 stores for us to buy. The only explanations have been given in the store. He has not explained anything about history or culture or architecture. In front of a church said: here another church can enter if they want. Not even the name of the Church gave us. The visit had to last two and a half hours but after an hour and a quarter he has already fired us. As the visit was so bad we are gone. From now on we will take free visits, at least if you do not like the guide you do not pay. Today we threw 36 euros and we lost more than an hour.
