Fernando learns you something about the history of Mérida, and also shows you all the good places you can go to (food, drinks, museums, cool stuff to see). This combination was really valuable to us, so I would really recommended this tour. And Fernando is really enthusiastic and fun to listen to!

The tour was amazing. Our guide Fernando made sure we were in the shades while he was sharing the informations about the different spots in the city. His form of storytelling was very entertaining and funny while he shared a lot of detailed information about the history of Mérida but also about good reataurants, bars, cafes and more in the city. He was happy to give more recommendations about what to do in and around the city. We really enjoyed the tour and would recommend it!
