We really liked the tour, we were very lucky to only be the two of us. Rosa, our guide, did an excellent job, she was very friendly, competent, informative and took a lot of time to explain. Due to the fact that there were only two of us, we had received a call the night before trying to talk us out of this tour and to do a Mezquita tour instead. It wasn't until we said, the patio tour or none, that they said, "ok then the tour will take place as planned". This call was annoying, unnecessary and unprofessional.
