Our guide Jose was entertaining and knowledgeable on the history of the sites. He was careful to maintain a manageable pace and kept an eye on our numbers not to lose anyone. Jose spoke in both Spanish and English ensuring we all learned the same facts. He made us laugh too. It was a outstanding tour through magnificent gardens and structures. Thank you.

Very interesting tour

Native speaker. Clear English. A lot of information. Everything is Ok. The only thing which was not so good is that the meeting location was very crowded and it was not clear whether we stay at a right place. The guide was not there 10 min before excursion. A flag or a large piece of paper with a GetYourGuide sign would help a lot.
