Excellent tour guides and good disposition!

Despite starting with rains we were able to successfully overcome this setback, and we made an excellent ride with a great driver and an excellent guide. I recommend them with pleasure are warm people friendly and of good disposition all the time. A pleasure !

Very nice view, narrow steps but less strenuous than expected (even if you are pregnant). The only deduction because the booked ticket did not include an audio guide. Go there in the morning during the week, then it's a bit more relaxed

Darkroom activity was not shown to us. Otherwise, you can see Cadiz from up there (the highest watchtower). Some explanatory boards on the evolution of the city over time are well done. Value for money ok.

José offered us an excellent tour of Cadiz.

We had a wonderful day. We saw a lot and learned a lot about Cadiz, but also about Spain and Seville. We also had a lot of fun. José was the perfect guide. Any time.
