The Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis was impressive! But the stories in there- even more. It was our fav part. However, all the route was made smart. We could get cool in the objects during the hot day.
Brilliant tour program and amazing guide! 2 hours were just enough to get to know Santa Fe and its main objects.
Bravo to our guide Elena! So adaptive and fun. Our teens were not bored at all!!! 😀
I recommend booking it in the morning time. It was very pleasant weather and fewer tourists. Thank you for the nice time.
The whole trip was designed perfectly. We enjoyed every single part of it. The shown places were even more beautiful than we expected. The whole trip would not have been so nice without the great knowledge of our guide who told us the history of this city and was slipping in jokes while perfectly guiding us. A really wonderful experience!
Very nice explanations, good organization. I have to congratulate the guide. Our guide was amazing, was early to meet us, had great knowledge, helpful and kind guy. Nice and friendly, speaks many languages. Would recommend.
