    Antonio war ein super Guide. Er hat sich Zeit genommen und führte uns sympathisch durch die Stadt. Ich kann es nur empfehlen. Antonio was a great guide. He took his time and guided us sympathetically through the city. I can only recommend it.

    Ricardo gave great insight into the history & places of Madrid and pointed out things that I otherwise would have just walked past! He made the tour a great experience that I'd thoroughly recommend.

    Not only did we learn about the tapas culture, how to order, where to eat them, we also saw different parts of the city and heard personal stories from Ricardo. His English was excellent, and he was very knowledgeable about Madrid and Spain. We highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to explore Madrid.

    We were very pleased with Alba & the excursion she arranged. She was flexible with our time & focused on showing us the highlights of our neighbourhood/Madrid. It was an excellent introduction to Madrid!
