Llegamos 10 minutos tarde y no había nadie con paraguas naranja cuando siempre están allí hablando al principio. En el free tour pone que a las 11 estuviéramos en un sitio y tampoco estuvo, estuvimos esperando hasta las 11:20. No recomiendo nada

I learned more history from this tour than a paid tour we did a day before. The guide (I think his name was Ramon) was very attentive to make sure the group was safe and thoughtfully explained about the history of Carmen, cave houses, roots of flamingo dances, and so much more. Be prepared to walk up and down the cobblestone hills and have cash with you. At the end, I wished I had more cash on hand to give it to the guide.

I wasn't impressed that no one showed up at either meeting point. Also no one was responded to any WhatsApp messages.
