Our walking tour with Alex was amazing. I've gotten to LOVE the city with all my heart because of Alex's personal and historical stories of it. He was very well prepared and also gave us time and space to ask him questions about everything related and unrelated to the city itself. We felt very comfortable with him. I definitely recommend these tours, very useful and top quality program!
