We highly recommend this informative and pleasant walking tour with Pablo as the guide. You will be treated to sights and activities of his hometown and the country area where he and his family live. We would do it again.

Thoroughly enjoyable walk through beautiful countryside. Interesting insight into the local small scale agriculture, vegetable and olive growing.
