Rodrigo es un apasionado de la historia, muy ameno durante todo el muy responsable y a pesar de haber reservado a poco tiempo estuvo muy predispuesto y no canceló como me sucedió con otras lo recomiendo!

Una visita inolvidable, recorrido muy ameno con explicaciones claras y a veces curiosas de cosas que desconocía. Gracias por tu amabilidad, por tu cercanía y por todas las aclaraciones. Repetiremos.
