What people are saying about Monterrey Palace

We did a very nice 2-hour bike tour with Martoke in Salamanca. From start to finish, Martoke enthusiastically told all kinds of interesting stories and fun anecdotes about the city. It wasn't a boring history lesson. She also tells about the history, cuisine, life and culture of Spain. Because of this we learned a lot and in a short time we got a good picture and we knew what to visit next in Salamanca. Partly because of Martoke, Salamanca has made a big impression on us and the city has come to life much more for us. Unlike other Spanish cities, cycling without an ebike is very doable in Salamanca. We highly recommend Martoke as a guide (not only for Salamanca, we came across Martoke later in Guadelupe :-)).

A fantastic introduction to the beautiful city of Salamanca. Martoke likes to share her extensive knowledge and does this in a fun way with lots of funny facts. She also gives many tips about the many sights. Highly recommended!
