Lisa our guide in English at the top in this discovery of local specialties !!! Super nice, smiling in all circumstances! and this spot at the end is a nice surprise to see the city from above. Small flat to the alcoholic participants before starting… it was fun but also pathetic over the hours!!!! Attention visit planned in French and we found ourselves with Germans, Australians, in English. Chance that we are broken in the use of the language but it could be a handicap for others. Big up to Lisa!!!!

Very good evening: very well organized with a selection of tapas which allows you to discover the local specialties. Our guide was pleasant and open. she knew how to adapt to the unexpected. We discussed various topics such as between acquaintances. But above all remember to specify the choice of language in the comments (to be sure to have a French guide).

Our tour guide Val was amazing! She was so knowledgeable and enjoyable to hang out with. She made the whole experience seamless. The food and drinks were fantastic. We loved the mushrooms and the view at the top at the end. Great tour we will recommend this to our friends coming to Madrid in a few weeks. We will also tell them to request Val she was great!

We found our tour very interesting! Our guide explained everything well and answered all questions. Finally we made our own graffiti! We highly recommend the tour

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and showed me around the city with great commitment. A very nice program.
