We had an excellent tour of Xativa with Pablo, our guide. He was very knowledgeable about the site and the area, and he set a good pace for the tour for the 14 of us traveling together. He was very friendly and attentive and answered all our questions, including from the younger kids on the trip. Our bus driver was friendly and always on time. I emailed with Maya prior to the trip and she answered all my questions and ensured that we were ready for our tour.
