Surprisingly, I was the only guest Martin have for the day. It was great having someone take photos around the city & the audio helped keeping you informed as you walk along. It was a hot day but Martin made sure we walked along shaded area. I wish GetYourGuide will do more offerings like this.

it was good, however i would have liked to have more photo shoot opportunities on the way there as the bus does not stop except for a quick coffee on top of the hill

Alberto was very kind and informative. We learned a lot of history and found out important details that would be missed just walking around.

Very nice tour with good explanation about the history of the city!

a very charming city and Marcela (tour guide) very knowledgeable
