Decided to take up this 2 hr tour. Boy did we experience more than we expected. Our tour guide Ricardo was so knowledgeable about the history of the city and it’s monuments and also very patient with two ladies who wanted to shop! For the souvenir hunter, this is THE tour to take. Thank you! We will return.

Unfortunately I was unable to take part in this experience as I was confined to my stateroom under COVID protocol - I had an upper respiratory infection but not, as it turns out, COVID. I persuaded my travel partners to participate in this tour so I could live vicariously. Their guide was Richardo and they said he was kind, personable and informative. They were absolutely thrilled!!
