I had a great time on this walking tour! Rafael was so nice and has so much knowledge about the city! Got to see some great places in the city (both the must-sees and hidden treasures) and met other great people on the tour!

saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
