Our guide, Rebecca, was awesome. She was friendly and easy to talk to as she gave us a tour of the Old Town. Rebecca suggested other places we should visit during our stay. She was also able to get us into the Diputación Provincial de Zaragoza for a free private tour of the casino library which was very special to see. We were very happy to have met Rebecca and had her as our guide. Two hours was just not long enough!!

We really had a wonderful time walking around Zaragoza with Reyes. Reyes came to our apartment to meet us and started the tour from there, explaining the history but also the little quirks of people living in Zaragoza. She also recommended some places to eat and the Christmas market where we could enjoy some rides and festive cheer. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Reyes!

A great experience! Thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Jorge. He took us to places we would never have tried on our own. Highly recommend!
