The guide did not appeared in the meeting point. And after more than half an hour of waiting and ourselves sending a message to the guide, we were informed that the tour was cancelled because there were not enough people.

Es un tour muy muy recomendable, y sobretodo porque el gurú César se entrega al 100%, comparte de forma muy entretenida e interesante sus conocimientos, y al valorar él mismo cualquier lugar por el que pasamos, hace que nosotros también lo hagamos y eso es maravilloso, porque al final así todo resulta interesante y el tiempo se pasa rapidísimo! Es una maravillosa forma de conocer la ciudad. Gracias, César :)
