It was good. It was a small group which made it nice. I also booked a tour to Pisa , but the instructions for the meeting place were not clear and we missed the bus. It upset me because we couldn’t find the place and I lost a lot of money.

Buena toma de contacto con la ciudad.

Un tour que te permite una toma de contacto con la ciudad viendo los principales lugares de interes. La guia fue muy amable y profesional, y sus explicaciones útiles, con la dificultad añadida de que daba la explicacion por partida doble: Ingles y Español, al tratarse en nuestro caso de un grupo mixto. Ello enlentece un poco el recorrido. Hay que aclarar que no se accede el interior de ninguna de las Iglesias o edificios, pero permite hacerse una idea de los lugares y su historia para despues visitar aquellos que mas nos interesen
