Excellent
Arantxa was a fabulous tour guide. She had a wealth of knowledge of Madrid, both past and present. Her knowledge of the art and artists at the Prado museum was truly impressive. 90 minutes at the Prado flew by in an instant, but gave a great introduction to what the museum has to offer. The walk through the literary quarter was a lot of fun. The stop for vermut was an unexpected highlight. I even bought a bottle to take back home. As for Botín, it lived up to the hype. It is living history and after eating the food, I can understand why it has been around for as long as it has. I can’t recommend this tour enough!

We loved our tour with Montse! We had our teen daughters with us and admittedly - I was nervous about holding their attention in the Prado. Montse was able to make the works relatable to them while also sharing additional detail that I was interested in. My husband found it interesting and engaging too! The stop at a tapas bar was great to acclimate us to that experience and made us much more comfortable doing it ourselves. Botín was a lovely experience and a delicious meal. Also - Montse was careful to be attentive to several food allergies and a vegetarian in our group. It was a fantastic experience. My second time booking with Walks and I highly recommmend.

Our tour guide, Rosita was excellent. The tour was a perfect intro to the Prado museum and it was wonderful to see Botin before opening. The stop to try Vermut was perfect as well. The only issue was at the end, we didn't have a chance to tip Rosita and would like to - please let us know if we can arrange to get her tip to her. We look forward to doing another devour tour as soon as possible!
