The walking tour in Antigua was full of information. We were the only ones to participate that day. Pablo has a lot of knowledge about Antigua's architecture and the country. We learned a lot during this tour. However, we had some issues with how it was organized. We were rushing through the city without any breaks and we didn't have any time to take pictures or enjoy the city vibes. Pablo was focused on sharing his knowledge, and at the same time I think he shared a bit too much from his private life. Still, it was a good experience to have but it wasn't a tour that I could sincerely recommend to anyone.
