Our tour guide was 15 minutes late. I was traveling with my mother, an 81 yo woman and my son, a 7 yo boy. Being on time would have been great. The "mission" tour, with a church on the advertisement is misleading. I will be seeking a refund of this trip.

Really enjoyed the tour but I got no confirmation of booking and was a little uncertain about where to meet etc. This was frustrating! Other than that found out lots of great things about the neighborhood! cheers
