The tour was a good overview.... it would have been good to stop at a place of interest for more in depth knowledge

The first guide for the bus tour didn’t always address our entire group- just some people. Also- this was advertised as an English speaking tour but in reality she spent twice as long because had to translate into English and Spanish for everyone.
