We had an amazing tour guide. A young woman from Santa Maria! Unfortunately we can't remember her name but she was brilliant. It ended up.just being my sister and I on the tour and she had lots of historic facts to tell us as we walked around the city. She took us into sweet shops and told us of local cuisine. She also personalised the tour for us as we'd already been to the cathedral! Really enjoyed it, she had such passion for the city and history.

We were very lucky to be the only 2 on a wonderful tour of key buildings in the medieval section of Cadiz. With thanks to our host Marta we had more of a long walking conversation past historic buildings we would never had identified without her knowledge, architectural and religious details through the streets and both cathedrals. It was extremely enjoyable. We took the 6pm tour so everything was much quieter and less congested. This also made a bid difference.

Interesting tour with a good guide. She was very knowledgeable and obviously proud of her city and its history. The tour group was only four people and unfortunately this meant that the English speaking and Spanish speaking groups were combined. The guide did her best but it resulted in a lot of hanging around whilst she said everything in both languages. To be fair, the terms and conditions do identify this may happen but it does understandably diminish the overall experience.
