  • I think the tour was really good. The guide was really knowledged and made all the efforts that we all enjoyed it with great explanations. I would reccomend the tour without any doubt.

  • We would definitely do this again, it was definitely worth the price. The stops and views were wonderful. Our guide, Maria added much value to the tour. Her knowledge and passion for history and current events was apparent and we enjoyed spending the morning with her. She is lovely.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Ivan was excellent

  • I really lucked out on this tour. It turned out I was the only person on it and therefore had the full attention of the guide. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and passionate not only about both the architecture and history of the buildings we visited but also of the significance of the religious icons. The churches were amazing and having such an informed guide made the tour so much more meaningful. Even with a larger group, I strongly suggest people consider this tour.

  • English/Spanish tour. Lacking in history and insight. The bus gets you to places but not much more.

  • This was a nice, 3 hour tour. We had the bus to ourselves as it was Saturday and most tourists go to the market out of town then. Went to several monuments, then up on the hill for a view and souvenir stands.

  • If you are like me and don't like reading a lot about the old city beforehand, the guide was great in explaining the significance of different places. I got a little overwhelmed by the history of this place however, so a bit of reading up before the trip may be a good idea. You get to visit the old churches, but unfortunately you don't get to spend a lot of time at some churches and hence you may want to re-visit them again at your own time. You also get to learn how to make chocolate and try the sweets at this shop.

    By the way, there are free tours available at La Plaza Grande that offer a brief tour around. Then you can choose which places you want to enter at your own time.

    If you have time, every Monday at 11am to 11:30am, there is changing of the guards ceremony where the president comes out to wave at the crowd for a brief second. You can even visit the Presidential Palace for free! You just have to know when the free tours are occurring.

  • A good way to visit the main sights with opportunities for guided exploration of much of the main venues on foot. Tandem explanations in Spanish and English.

  • This tour was amazing!
