When our tour guide got there he came in telling us the tour was in Spanish. We were under the impression all tours were in English. We had two more people that wanted to join the tour there were plenty of spots on the bus although he charged them 75/person cash. Then the tour only lasted 2 hours when it says the duration is 4. the tour guide seemed relatively knowledgeable, although left a pretty flat impression on us. I would do a different tour.
