Great 2hours trip experience!

Great 2 hours SA experience! However, the information that it is a "half-day" tour is an exaggeration, not even 3,5h as advertised but 2hours!

A Positive and A Negative Experience
Patricia_S
, Dec 2021
A Positive- Our tour guide Alex was knowledgeable and very friendly. We recommend him. A Negative- Our tour started at 9am in La Viletta which is The Village. There are many interesting artistic shops here however other than the handmade soap store, the other stores open at 10 am and we were brought there at 9 am. Why spend about an hour in an area that is predominantly the closed? Viatour needs to change this day tour to an afternoon tour. A Negative. This is not a 4 hour tour. The tour went from 9 am to 11 am after which Alex brought us to a Mexican restaurant where he waited with us for 1/2 hour before we could get in. We were told that after lunch on our own, we could walk around the shops, of which there were many. The shops were of the type that could best be described as “tacky”, cheap” and low value… now imagine tie after row after row of these places. Fir Alex’s part he gave us a choice of staying there until he picked us up- or dropping us off at the Alamo, where we had purchased our own Alamo tickets for 1pm. When you do not know the area at all, making a choice like this is difficult at best because as tourists we were not really able to compare which would have been the better option. So- we remained where he left us and simply waited until he picked us up. We would say this- Alex is knowledgeable, this should be an afternoon tour, and this is NOT a 4 hour tour. At $130 fir 2 people plus a tip we gave a $30- this trio has low value for the money. On a positive note the church was beautiful- please see pictures.
