Maria was a most passionate guide who imparts so much information about Jerez. She clearly loves ecclesiastical architecture and we learnt to look at Church facades more intensely. We look forward to our ttio to Cadiz today with the knowledge she has given us about private houses, sour or sweet oranges etc. Thank you so much Maria.

The local tour company was very responsive and a phone call was received three days before the tour. Also, during the Christmas season, the dissolution location had to be changed from the meeting place, so he sent me to me near the hotel without any intuition.

Maria was a charming, amusing and knowledgeable guide. We enjoyed our tour around Jerez with her, which took in a wide range of sites and with very interesting insights into the history of the city. ¡Muy gracias!

Don't miss this tour! Very professionally organized and managed. Exceptional guide. Highly recommend.
