Also learned a lot about the buildings and streets decked out in murals and bright colors as well as the old banking and business district. Christian has a passion for his city and he is attentive...

It worked out really well for us as Christian was able to tailor the tour for us. We were both recovering from nasty colds so we wanted a more sedate... More

We had an awesome tour with Christian. Informative, fun, relaxing and a great way to see the city. We loved the fish markets, riding the trolley car and walking the streets to get a true sense of the history and vibrancy of the city. Highly recommend without hesitation.

The afternoon tour with Cristian was FANTASTIC. I studied abroad here years ago and learned so much I did not know. He grew up right in the heart of the city so REALLY knows his stuff and you get a very personal, genuine guide through a city which otherwise has lots of nooks and crannies you would not find on...
