IT IS A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE, WE ARE ACCOMPANYING YOU THROUGHOUT THE NEIGHBORHOOD WE WERE ON NOVEMBER 28TH WHEN ALL THE HOUSES WERE NOT ON THE ADVANCED GUIDE TO LOOK FOR THE HOUSES THAT WERE LIGHTED WHILE WE TAKEN PHOTOS AND ALWAYS EVERYTHING AND ATTENTION, WE DID THE TOUR IN ENGLISH. THAT DATE WAS NOT IN SPANISH. Although we could not see all the houses with what we saw, it was more than enough and I think that these dates are better than others because we were alone, when it is filled with people and it counts a lot to take pictures, at the end of the tour the guide IT WAS LIKE FAMILY, RECOMMENDING THIS EXPERIENCE AND WOULD REPEAT
