It was almost a private tour, which made it very easy to ask all your questions. She knew all the places, the people and answers on the questions. It was an amazing experience!

Liliana is a great guide and has a upbeat and fun personality. We appreciated that she deliberately keeps her tours small, as it makes for a more personalized experience.

We’ve done other walking tours and thought they were great so we had the same high expectations and Liliana did not disappoint! She was super friendly, very knowledgeable and also very accommodating. She even provided restaurant and event recommendations after the tour was finished. I would select another tour with Liliana in a heartbeat and would highly recommend her tour.
