Excellent bike tour today, informative, interesting and a great way to not only see Santiago but also learn a little more about its history.
My friend and I took this tour of Parks and Politics with Gabriella on a late show up and it was excellent. Very informative and Gabba makes the tour a lot of fun. Highly recommend! Thanks again.
