Great visit with a great guide. Raul brings his deep knowledge of the battle to you and makes everything come alive. He takes plenty of time, and shows you a good variety of the most significant locations across the area. Really good!!

My wife and I booked a private battlefield tour of Los Arapiles ( The battle of Salamanca ) on June 8th 2022 through the Viator on line booking platform
We were conveniently picked up from our Salamanca hotel by Raul Bellido a Millitary Historian who was to be our guide for the morning.
For direct contact see
or contact Raul at (+34) 622 22 13 73
We found Raul to be an excellent guide with a thorough knowledge of both the Battle of Los Arapiles and the wider Peninsula War
The morning was very well planned with a visit to all the key battlefield locations in order which helped to fully understand how the battle unfolded
This was supplement by Raul’s own folder showing pictorial battle plans and participants and a mid morning stop at the excellent museum at Los Arapile
Raul certainly brought the battle to life and with his expensive knowledge was able to answer any questions we asked.
On a practice note to obtain the best understanding of the battle field you will climb to a number of battles vantage points a good pair of shoes or walking boots is helpful and cloths and to suite the weather
The site is rural no shops so take any refreshment you need and there is a toilet at the Museum half way around
We would certainly recommend Raul as a Military you guide.

Fabulous trip. Very knowledgeable courteous guide.
There was only 4 of us some with limited mobility and he managed to drive to most places on the battlefield or as close as possible.
The small museum was great and definitely re-enforced the things we had learnt!
Would definitely recommend and do it again!
Viaje a nuestro pasado

Cuando algo nos apasiona, somos capaces de transmitir esa pasión y hacer disfrutar a los demás de nuestro conocimiento y eso es precisamente lo que pasa con Raúl. Da igual si te gusta la historia, si lo que quieres es dar un paseo por el campo, o simplemente te has visto invitado a esta actividad. Al terminar se te meterá el gusanillo en el cuerpo de querer saber más y más sobre la influencia Napoleónica en nuestra tierra. Nunca más volveré a ver con los mismos ojos estos paisajes. Gracias
Muy buena experiencia. Totalmente recomendable

Fantástica visita al campo de batalla de Los Arapiles. Raúl es un guía estupendo, con un total conocimiento del terreno y de los hechos y que hace muy amena una visita que duró algo más de 4 horas.
Con sus explicaciones permite ponerse en contexto de los hechos y ver de primera mano los accidentes del terreno, algo imposible de hacer sobre un mapa.
Una visita muy recomendable para cualquier aficionado a la época napoleónica, y para los no conocedores del tema una oportunidad muy buena para conocer nuestra historia y pasar una mañana muy amena.
