Really nice tour guide but, he didn’t speak English at all. The city was not what I expected. The pressure to buy was intense and uncomfortable. Not cheap gifts they try to rip you off big time. Have to tip like 3 people because there is the driver that didn’t speak English, the guy that gives you the tour of the food market and the guy that takes you to the church. Didn’t go to the painting market or mall because we knew we would be pressured to buy.
