What an amazing tour! Jose and Pedro were wonderful guides, friendly and easy to talk to and get to know as we toured the major attractions of the colonial zone. The first half of the tour was focused on the history of the city and the people and places as we passed by. We went into two museums, two churches, visited two ruins sights, it was really a wonderful to experience it all. Midway through the tour we stopped for water and coffee, and Jose explained that the first half of the tour was focused on just the colonial sights everyone sees, and the second half of the tour focused more on the local experience. Jose stopped at multiple points to take wonderful pictures with me in them (a rarity for a solo traveler) and he was quite the photographer, they came out great! We finished the tour at their restaurant and he made me a delicious vegetarian dinner, with a great view. If you want to get acquainted with the colonial zone and make a couple of friends while your at it I highly recommend this tour!
