We really enjoyed the two tours we did with Nadia. On the first day, our flight was delayed and Nadia was very kind, postponing the start of the tour and making arrangements to see as much as possible of what was originally scheduled. The rides flowed very well. Nádia has a clear and objective communication, demonstrating a comprehensive and varied knowledge, approaching naturally the questions that were posed and adjusting the information that presented to our interests. He chose well the various points of the course and the order, in which we passed them, to efficiently cover all the points. She was also very attentive to us.
Both Jose and the day long tour were terrific. Jose was so knowledgable, was able to modify the tour to meet our being a wee bit tired from the heat and he moved us along at the right speed. A great day with a wonderful tour guide!
Excellent day, talked architecture, history, a little economics, guide highly engaging I learned a lot! He also helpfully guided me back toward my hotel having heard me earlier explain I got lost!
