Our guide, Manolo was great. He showed us all the best sites and walked us around the city. He told us about the the city, the history of the cathedral, and took us to the best shopping sites. If I had to visit all over again, I would make sure I would ask for him to take us on this tour!

Our very skilled driver gave us a wonderful tour, with memories to last a lifetime. The only thing I would suggest for this tour would be to make it an overnight stay - so the driver can get some rest.
