Anna & Legends - fantastic tour

Anna was a fantastic tour guide. Charismatic, warm, and funny from the beginning. Myself and my partner love history so we feel walking tours are just ideal in new cities. Aside from the cultural and historical aspect, the way in which the guide conveys the story, remembers names of people, makes a joke and continuously involves people is so important. Anna nailed it all on the head and it was super enjoyable.

Free tour with Cesar

We did a tour with Cesar. He's the best walking tour guide I've ever met. Professional, knowledgeable and entertaining at the same time. I totally recommend doing this walking tour, especially with Cesar.
