This is the second free walking tour I've done and definitely the best one. Cuzco was ok but they went hours over the allotted time so our plans were ruined. This BA one seemed very well organised and she controlled the schedule very well even after serious rain that prevented us starting for at least 30/40 mins.
Lorrie impressed with her huge local knowledge many times. She could even tell me the Latin names of native trees - that definitely shouldn't be expected!

Smart girl, smart tour, well worth the walk and tips. Off to do the afternoon one today!

Thank Graham B

We did both the morning and the afternoon tour. It's a good way to visit the city but having a good guide makes the difference. We really appreciated one of the guides, Dolores, a bit less the other one but still we enjoyed walking around the city.

I went on both tours my first day in the city. It is a great way to learn a little about where you are visiting and helps to get an initial feel for the city. Both guides were great.

This is the best way to get to know any city- walking around with a local guide! Loli was funny, open to questions and was not intimidated by the big group. I recommend both tours

We went 2 separate days to each of the offered tours. Very nice students with good English and good knowledge of the City, culture, history. Very attentive to include everybody and address all the questions.
I highly recommend taking this tours. Yes you can have a tour book, and look and read about the buildings but everything come alive when these enthusiastic guides are bringing history, art, culture together.
The tour is free but after spending 3-4 hours with each of them you cannot leave without giving them a tip. How much is up to you and your pocket. An other advantage is meeting a bunch of interesting people that are sharing the experience with you and sometime adding to make the walking even ,more enjoyable.
i hope they are adding more tours for other areas of the City.
