Once they pick up everyone its starts to be fun. They have local music, drinks and a lot of attitude. You get to see the city by night and dance while at it. We had a lot of fun!

There is a daytime chiva and a nighttime chiva, the daytime one is more historical information etc and the nighttime one is really just music, drinking and dancing (as best you can while seated on a bus!).
