Go with Carolina
"Carolina, our tour guide, made the tour very fun and interesting by explaining different things about the city and introducing us to three different artisans. It was amazing to see the stone masons make portraits and landscapes with colored stone. We were able to take part in creating marbled paper and we met an artisan who makes gorgeous items with leather! I would definitely recommend Carolina and this tour with LivTours! "

Great multi-event experience with LivTours!
"During the tour, we visited a leather working shop, a paper decorating shop, and a mosaic shop. The artisans were very kind about taking the time to teach us and help us learn about their craft. Our guide Rafaela was with us all day and she was full of information and very kind. We had my 10-month old nephew and my 7-year old daughter with us, and the tour was perfect for them too!"
