Atendimento VIP.
Por conta da baixa demanda, minha esposa e eu fomos agraciados com um tour em veículo particular com motorista e guia exclusivo.
A guia Manuela é um show à parte de simpatia, atenção e ótimo comhecimento da história e pontos da cidade.
Sabe tudo e ainda dá dicas de compras e locais para comes e bebes.
Recomendo demais.
