Excellent
Alfonso provided a docent-like tour of several fantastic works of art within the Prado! My family truly enjoyed hearing his thoughts on the art, its history, the city of Madrid, and the life of Madrilenos. The restaurant was a unique experience that was very enjoyable for meat eaters and vegetarians. We highly recommend the tour!

This tour was awesome! Our tour guide Cassie was very knowledgeable and we really enjoyed learning about Spanish history through the art in the Prado. Botin lunch was amazing and getting access to the restaurant before opening time was really special.

I thought the tour was great! I enjoyed walking the streets of Madrid with a local who was able to give us insight into the history of the streets as we walked along them. I would have liked to have a little more selection at certain spots like trying a variety of churros for comparing and also a choice of desserts at the end. But that didn’t take away from the great time we had. We really enjoyed Carol and thought she was very friendly and enjoyed our time with her.
