What people are saying about Paso Robles

Overall rating

4.8 / 5

based on 9 reviews

This is a very nice tour around the central square/park of Paso Robles with a bit of historical information and connection to current/recent tourism, art and culture. Frankly, I am not much of a puzzle enthusiast, so I skipped some of the more time consuming ones, and could have enjoyed the tour without them. For a group of people who like puzzles, it is a bit more diverting.
