Great, we saw a lot.
The guide is excelent, but we did everything so fast that we couldn't see everything that we wanted to. I had the impression that they were late and tried to finish the tour fast.
For a 3 hour tour this one was excellent. Our tour guide Alicia was not only very knowledgeable but managed to convey the information A history, culture etc in a most interesting way. We made several stops at the main sights and had time for photos etc. I thoroughly recommend the tour and Alicia.
