    Going on a tour the first day is always an excellent choice, because it allows you to make smarter and more informed choice along the rest of the stay. It seems that Enrique did a good job living up to our standards of avoiding any prefabricated tours and be attuned to your interests. We are very excited about your feedback! Thank you!
