Excelente experiencia. El viaje en autobus fue muy cómodo y el grupo era pequeño así que habia espacio suficiente para mantener distancia por el tema de Covid-19. Nuestra guía, Rocío, fue muy clara, amable y jocosa, se expresaba muy bien en español e inglés y, además de proveernos la información histórica, contestó nuestras preguntas y nos proveyó recomendaciones de comidas, locales, etc.

Our driver, Felipe, gave us a wonderful tour. He was informative and kind. He shared local information that was very helpful for us.

Nice half day trip. Great weather and beautiful views :) only had 15 min at the basilica but it was fine for me personally.
