The guide was organized and made the tour very easy. His explanations of the sights in the palace mainly included only what was on the plaque cards in the room with rare other tidbits thrown in. He spent and equal amount of time speaking English and Spanish. Well worth the price to skip lines and have a guide’s direction. I recommend it.

Todo pasó muy bien. Nos reunieron en dos grupos según el idioma (español e inglés), nos juntamos a las 08:15- 08:45 y en el Palacio entramos a las 09:15 más o menos. El guía es muy profesional, la historia es muy interesante. Evitamos colas largas y disfrutamos mucho.
