Ask for Beth if you want to enjoy Madrid like a native!

Beth is a great combination of personality, humor and knowledge. Her sometimes irreverent insights gave us knowledge not always available to a visitor. Her artistic perceptions borne of her own life experience enhanced every chapter of our tour. We'll never forget the story she shared of how she and her new husband received the blessing of their marriage at La Torre de Oro (Plaza Mayor). She is a special person.

This activity has been fabulous; by far it has been the best on my trip. After her I felt that I learned things and had information that I didn't have before. I highly recommend it, and our guide Beth; artist, bilingual and great connoisseur of the city of Madrid with great ease to transmit information and knowledge.

The company was very good. They contacted us prior to the meeting point. Julian was our guide and he was wonderful! Highly recommend this tour. He was very informative and nice.

This was a good city tour guided by Carman. She is very knowledgeable and I learned a lot from my time on the tour

A great walking tour by a knowledgeable guide.

Julian was a pleasure to be with. A good afternoon and we benefited from a local perspective.
