Joined José on our walking tour and had a great time. Perfect English, knowledgeable, witty and charming, the perfect ambassador for his city. Would recommend this to everyone visiting the city.

Learned a huge amount on this very informative tour with guide Silvia. Lasts just over two hours so do wear comfy shoes, though it’s not a challenging walk.

Don’t know about a booking reference. We just turned up and joined in. No fee just a tip at the end. Well worth it.
