Beth was an extremely knowledgeable host that told us many interesting stories. We experienced the city in a totally different light during the tour.

Fantastic tour

From experience tour guides can be either fantastic and exciting or boring reading from books and showing postcards. Beatriz was the first kind of tour guide. A historian and history teacher herself. She made the tour very exciting and provide many inside and details along the way. Fantastic!
