Concentrated knowledge in 2 hours: Wow!

We were very satisfied. Only the young lady ran a little too fast for us, we are over 70 years old, and have managed to keep up with her. Next day we tried allkes again alone to run slower. The investment was well worth it. The contact to make an appointment was not possible at midday. The Spanish telephone line said something in Spanish which is incomprehensible to a tourist. You should still work on this so that contact on site works. Lunch break or no. Keep in mind that if I dial a number in Spain with my mobile phone, I will incur roaming expenses. All together some euros until I have someone from the agency erred. Such costs can be avoided with perfect organization. I often go with GetyourGuide but the contact was excellent. Maybe my buddy will help you improve your service. Greetings.
