Informative Stadtrundfahrt

Es wurden nicht nur die typischen Attraktionen für Touristen gezeigt, sondern auch das alltägliche Leben. Ab und zu waren Haltepunkte, an denen ausgestiegen werden konnte. Eine kleine Erfrischung war ebenfalls dabei. Leider war die Tour nicht auf Deutsch. Aber auch wenn man der spanischen Sprache nicht mächtig war, so halfen doch die Erklärungen auf Englisch. Auf alle Fälle ist die Tour zu empfehlen, um sich einen ersten Überblick über die Stadt zu verschaffen.
