We met our guide in front of the National Theatre at 10:00 am. Nacho was informative and personable. We had a gelato type of treat in the market and visited several parks. The tour was about 2.5 hours.

This tour was excellent. Adriana show us many landmarks of the city. Her personality was pleasant and vivid. She took us on a market food taste from local grown fruits to home made foods. Just bring some wet naps and water and you’re good to go.
