The guide was super nice and very knowledgeable. She was engaging and energetic to make the tour more interesting. Gave us enough pause time from room to room to look at the different aspects and take pictures and answered all the questions the different tourists had for her. Very sweet lady, and her English was great to top it off. I booked an express tour for 1 hour but she ended up showing us around for longer than that and we didn't run out of things to see either! She was willing to stay the extra time and wanted to keep going along with the wishes of the group. I would very much recommend them!

Really a very dynamic tour with a guide of vast knowledge, friendly and well predisposed to listen and answer all questions, we have taken the tour in English because there were no more places in Spanish but anyway it was very clear and detailed.

Our tour guide was very personable, and reached out to each person in our group often to be sure they were understanding her and inquire if they had questions
