Mi experiencia fue correcta y muy completa, nuestra guía nos explicó al detalle todo lo importante y más, tanto que se pasó media hora. y eso que al final tuvo que ir muy deprisa.

Un tour muy anecdótico! Se hizo muy ameno y divertido! He aprendido muchas cosas que no sabía de Alcalá. Lidia es muy cercana y cuenta las cosas con mucho entusiasmo

Lidia es una guía especial, muy preparada y hace sus trabajo con mucha conciencia. Es una persona atípica que hace su trabajo con mucho profesionalismo.

Hizo muy amablemente la visita conmigo solo, el resto de reservas no se presentó. Me dió mucha pena/rabia/impotencia, por la falta de respeto hacia ella, pero adaptó el tour y lo hizo muy bien. Se lo agradezco.
