This company and our guide, Felix, were incredible. Meeting the guide was easy, and meeting at the first spot of the tour helped ensure that no time was wasted. The tour was through, yet detailed, and the guide's knowledge and love for the city was evident throughout the tour.

Our guide MR Rivas is fantastic! He was very knowledgeable and engaging. Very Informative. The only reason for the 4 is that I felt a little rushed. For the amount there is to see, the tour needs to be longer

Each time we visit a new city, we start with a walking tour. This gives us a chance to get the lay of the land, discover must see areas, and get advice from a knowledgeable local. So we have done a lot of these. Erwin was awesome. Highly recommended. Learn about the city, enjoy some coffee, and get your bearings!
