5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

I was initially nervous to book a trip on line but the reviews seemed excellent and I didn't want to chance the trip on my own. I was traveling on my own with 2 children. Everything was amazing. Just the right amount of time with our guide Yolanda who was so friendly an knowledgable. Then time to ourselves. I would highly recommend this tour. No fuss - no trying to figure out the city on your own - definitely well worth the fee which was also very affordable. My only negative was the lady at the desk when we first arrived. But don't let the first impression fool you. The rest of the experience was top notch!!
