What people are saying about Madrid

A most memorable experience, the food itself was fantastic, but added to the beautiful voices of the kind and affable servers, the lovely pianist and the overall magic of the dinner/show, it makes a visit to Castafiori a must when in Madrid. Please don't miss reading about the story of the Castafiori and paying attention to the paintings in the rooms, and to the awards by the entrance! Encore Encore! Indispensable al visitar Madrid venir al Castafiori a este espectaculo, siquiera una vez! Excelente comida, y el canto y la afabilidad de los "meseros" es memorable. Por favor pongan atencion a la historia del lugar, y a todas las pinturas en el lugar, asi como a los galardones a la entrada, para poner el correcto trasfondo a este maravilloso lugar. Bravisimo!

This tour comes with a private guide for the duration. Pablo brought us to the main city sites and provided us with informative details of the sites. Highly recommended.

As it was our first experience with a Segway, we thoroughly enjoyed the tour and we had a very knowledgeable and friendly guide, which added to the overall experience.

I offered this dinner show to my parents, they were delighted, the artists are extraordinary!

A unique experience! The artists are excellent. The service is the first.
