It was a good tour and we enjoyed it very much. Our guide (Rachel) was wonderful, funny and nice to us although she spoke a bit fast and with an Spanish accent so it was hard to hear everything she said. But we had fun and will recommend this to our friends if the go Madrid :).
Good tour...saw all the major sights...very informative
We liked the tour very much even though it was raining a bit. Leticia was a very enthousiastic guide who had a lot of knowledge about Madrid and its history and a lot of stories to tell.
Amazing tour. Leticia has an incredible knowledge of Madrid and she gave over information with great enthusiasm and love for the city. Tour had a good balance of history and anecdote, and was easy to follow.
Our guide Leticia was very knowledgeable about the history of Madrid and very passionate about telling the story. She made the 3 hour tour fly by.
Tenia una cita a la 1:30 pm y por lo tanto no podia hacer el tour completo, debia terminar media hora antes del final planeado. Desde el principio del tour le pedi a la guia que me ayudara para poder llegar a tiempo y me indicara en que momento estabamos cerca de una estacion del metro en el tiempo apropiado para yo desplazarme. Realmente creo que no lo hizo en forma efectiva. Me mando al metro con instrucciones poco claras e incorrectas (son dos minutos... y eran 8 manzanas, mas del triple), y llegue tarde a mi cita. Ella es buena guia pero no controla bien su tiempo y las necesidades de sus clientes y eramos solo 3 en el tour. de todas formas le di una propina de 10 francos.
Leticia was a wonderful tour guide. She has so much knowledge about Madrid it was a joy to spend three hours with her today. She has lots of stories to tell and her English is fabulous. This is a must do tour and highly recommend it.
Very interesting tour with Raquel..lovely girl,full of energy and very entertaining.Highly recommended
Nuestro guía estaba muy bien preparado sobre los temas de los que nos habló.
Guide was extremely knowledgeable. Made the history interesting. Was very good at answering questions.
Leticia was well versed in the history and essence of the city. I have enjoyed Madrid, but she made me fall in love! I was thoroughly impressed.
The guide was very well-prepared and talked in a very interesting way about historical fatcs and anecdotes. He was very knowledgeable about history of Spain. It was a very good experience. I would highly reccomend these tours to others! Thank you.
It was nice and funny. Rodrigo was a great guide.
We enjoyed every aspect of it
Rodrigo is very passionate about the stories he presented. He is professional, friendly and well organized.
There was too much explanation that was not nessesery. But the lady was very nice and enthusiastic.
We did the tour with Rodriguez and he was great. He admitted it was the first time going that tour- he does other walking tours- but if he hadn’t told us we would not have known. He was full of knowledge- made the tour fun and his passion for Madrid and the tour was obvious. We had a fun time on this tour while learning more about Madrid. Thanks Rodriguez.
Leticia is an awesome guide, she's amazingly friendly and knows so much about everything, and if you manage to ask something she doesn't have the answer to, she checks it online for absolute perfection.
The guide was very good and her English was excellent. However I think it was just about a half hour too long! By 1pm you are tired and need a drink! Maybe if it started at 10 it would be fine.
The guide was very enthusiastic and knew a lot about the city. Her English was good. We were not aware it was a three hour tour so the two teenagers in our family thought it was too long time. It was good to hear the different stories and we enjoyed the tour, thanks for a good experience.
It was a very good And interesting tour,but at some Points it was even to much Detailed Information And Almost not possible to follow The whole stories. Could have had more stops And Little shorter Information. But a very motivated Tour Guide And really friendly!!
Very informative and we learnt so much about your beautiful city
Rather too much information about the various Saints, being Christians but not of the Catholic faith. The tour could have been shorter - about 2 hours would have been better.
Racquel was enthusiastic, energetic and knowledgeable
Tour guide was very enthusiastic and gave us a very good history and tour which were most relevant. Exactly the sort of tour which is both informative and humorous. Will definitely recommend this to friends and colleagues!!
Leticia - our guide was wonderful - so knowledgeable, so enthusiastic and so able to convey the information and context of the place
Because the Tour guide was the best. she is a 5 Stars
Rachel took us place we Would not have found on our own.
We toured the Old City with Rachel. The tour was very interesting with a lot of informant who helps to understand the culture of Spain. I would strongly recommend the tour to all of my friends. Muchas gracias Dorit
Guide is really good to explain everything, professional, it was really interesting , I learned lot about Madrid old town,looking forward to see new town too
The tour gave us a lot of information about the city! It could have been a bit more funnier because the long talks about history can be easily boring for "not-history-lovers".

Im not really expecting it, but it was really a detailed explanation of Old Landmarks. We are really happy that we have learned a lot for 3hrs. An “A” for the effort & patience in narrating and answering our questions. We really appreciate it.
