FAQs

FAQ How much walking is involved?

You’ll walk just over a mile but as the tour takes around three hours and there’s a lot of shade, it should not be hard going.

FAQ Where does the tour start and end?

You’ll start at one end of the Old City at Palacio Salvo, right on the Independence Square and end at the port market at the other end.

FAQ How the hell do you pronounce Ciudad Vieja?

Ciudad Vieja is how you say Old City in Spanish, and it’s the name of the neighbourhood, which is of course the capital’s historic barrio. You say it see-you-DAD vee-AY-zhah (or something like that anyway).
