The Royal palace tour was great. The guide was informative and knowledgeable about the palace. The Flamenco show was impressive and would recommend it to others either by itself or with the tour

A truly wonderful performance, full of passion, rhythm and emotion. I have to admit it was the first time I had seen such a performance, but it was truly moving.

Really fantastic show. Small venue, so no large crowd. Felt like a proper little theater. Definitely recommend
