The tour with Tony was amazing!! We learned so much, he took us to see a ton of incredible street art and made the tour very interactive (including a chocolate tasting! 🤤). The tour covered an impressive range of aspects of culture and his recommendations for places to go for everything from burritos to indie films were spot on. Totally exceeded expectations, we had a blast. Thanks for making this one of the highlights of our trip!

I got to do a walking tour with Tony and Funny. Funny I already knew from my Spanish classes which I can only recommend! It was super chilled and interesting. You really get to immerse into San Cristobal and know how to get around. I especially liked the street art part. Further, they let you know about certain events!!! Super
A super complete tour. Tony sucks at what he does! We learned several things about San Cris because it was a 3-hour tour, but we didn't even feel the time, it was very enjoyable.The truth was 10/10!

Tony makes great and very large tours. Meaning you'll see tags, but might crops their artists, understand their art and the message it conveys.On top of that they have a great way of mixing, Theological stuff along with ancient and modern history.Now if that's not enough you'll also check other galeries, crafting shops and great places to eat. 🍫🎨♀️And we were told that the tour can fit your needs 🙏🏽Recommend without hesitation.

Highly recommended ! My Spanish teacher invited me last minute to come to this tour, little did I know it was a fantastic experience and probably one of the best walking tours I ever attended. Toni is a very knowledgeable guide and speaks English at a very high level. We had the best time, were shown around the city for 3 hours and heard about some hidden gems that I would otherwise have not found myself.Please make sure this is on your to-do list when visiting San Cris !

I highly recommend this experience. It's got amazing art, amazing food, and amazing sights. It should be a required first plan during your stay in San Cristóbal! Tony's knowledge of the city's architecture, symbology, history, and art scene is expansive. Beyond that, he's super friendly and clearly dedicated to showcasing the vibrant culture here. Plus, if you like baked goods, he knows where to find the BEST pastries in all of San Cristóbal. You'll have to take the tour to find out where 🙂
