Group size was perfect (11), the venues on the tour were great and Ernesto was very knowledgeable about all aspects of Madrid architecture, culture and history; he brought things to life in a way that was very engaging. The authentic tapas towards the end of the tour was very good and well timed! Great tour - would definitely recommend.

Our day visiting the Royal Palace with Carmen was so much fun! Carmen provided the perfect amount of explanation for all of the things we saw that day and also kept things fun! We navigated around crowds at the Palace and were able to see all of the high points. She was incredibly knowledgeable and personable. Our group quickly became friends and enjoyed ending our day with a tapas snack and a walk through Madrid's old town.

We took a walking tour of Madrid, visiting the Palace and Cathedral, market and more. It’s a beautiful city and Ernesto was an excellent guide, passionate and knowledgeable. It is a lot of walking, so be prepared for that!
