  • This was just about the perfect private excursion to take while in the area. Our guide easily was able to adjust to unexpected changes, like anticipated stops that happened to be closed for uncontrollable reasons, and add sites the closely matched our unique interests. She was a wealth of information from historic to cultural, and even personal. She was even able to question what we had already seen and to make recommendations of things to see in our remaining time in the area. This completely enjoyable day gave us a great overview of the artist communities just a short hop from the main tourist sites of the downtown area.

  • Our tour guide was excellent...friendly, a wealth of knowledge, well educated, well travelled. He knew exactly which businesses/retail shops to stop at that would be of interest to us.

  • LILLY and Luis were truly a delight! Both my wife and I felt like we were with old friends giving us a personal tour of their hometown. Whether in Spanish or English, we were able to speak to them with no problems. The places we went to were very nice. LILLY was very quick to pick up on our likes and adjusted the itinerary appropriately. Very sad to see the day with them end. Planning to return. Hopefully we can get them again.Wish I could rate them higher!!
