Very nice all around tour of the city! It was great to take a walking tour and our guide Charo did a nice job of talking about the history of Jerez as well as giving us unique facts about the orange trees, sherry wine and famous Flamenco dancer Lola Flores. A nice length tour of about 1 1/2 hours with great recommendations for places to eat tapas later on!

It was excellent. Angel, our guide, shared a lot of historical information in a fun way. He made the tour informative and entertaining.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and engaging. We enjoyed learning about the history of the area from the Romans to the current day.

Begoña was wonderful, gave us a nice historical overview of Jerez, great stories and advice.

We had interesting and informative tour with Marta. Highly recommended!
