My husband and I really enjoyed this tour that was conducted by Carmen Gonzalez. She is an excellent guide who clearly knows a lot about Madrid and has a great passion for her city. As it was raining on the day of the tour, we stated off at the Palace. What an amazing place to see in Madrid, complimented by the fact that Carmen's knowledge of the place meant everyone on the tour really got a great understanding of each individual room they were standing in and the significance of the symbols in the rooms. We carried then on outside and saw many beautiful parts of the city, including Plaza Mayor -wow - its truly incredible! I would recommend this tour for sure and thank Carmen for the time she spent with us.
