Experiencia muy mala. El guía no se veía muy preparado sobre la ciudad. El recorrido poco interesante. Nos llevó a mercaditos y tiendas comerciales de cero interés. No aportó muchos datos histórico culturales. Las explicaciones han sido, en general, muy superficiales. Estuvo hablando ratos por teléfono durante el recorrido. Ha sido muy aburrido y nos fuimos con ceros conocimientos adquiridos.

Das war leider nichts! Man erfährt sehr wenig und das was man erfährt ist eher langweilig (Jahreszahlen von wann irgendeine Kirche ist), keine interessanten Informationen zur Geschichte oder zur Gegenwart, kein roter Faden, die besuchten Orte wirken wahllos und zusammenhangslos. Stattdessen wird man durch Geschäfte geschleust (vermutlich in der Hoffnung das man dort etwas kauft), statt der gebuchten englischsprachigen Tour war sie zweisprachig (spanisch und englisch). Diese Tour ist leider Zeitverschwendung, kann daher nur davon abraten.
