Mixed experience.
Demetris_P, Jan 2024
Our tour guide (Fernando) was excellent. We learnt a lot about the city and its history. The problem was that the tour description included tickets at places visited and lunch. However, our guide was surprised to hear that because he was not instructed to pay entrance tickets and no lunch. Actually, because he was very good, we invited him to join us for lunch -- for which we paid.
Response from Host, Jan 2024
Dear customer, Thank you very much for your comment. Indeed, this service does not include lunch, we saw our products and could not find any fault in the description, we recommend reading carefully and being sure to buy the correct service. Best regards,
