El trato de Miguel Ángel fue excelente y muy profesional. La visita resultó muy amena, tanto que habríamos estado más tiempo con él. A pesar del intendo calor, el tiempo transcurrió muy deprisa. El guía es un verdero enamorado de su tierra, que sabe transmitir muy bien su pasión por lo que hace en todo lo que narra. Quedamos encantados y muy agradecidos también por sus consejos acerca de lugares interesantes para visitar, tapear y pasear. La visita es imprescindible
