Super fun and informative! A great way to see the city at night and learn about the inquisition. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and well spoken.
A Tour you will not forget

English Tour with David.

The Tour was amazing. The guides english was on spot. Expect to be taken to places you havent seen and hear stories you havent heard.
A nice mix between acting, history and story telling.
I will recommend it to everybody I know who will visit Madrid.
Thanks for the evening
Captivating- great storytelling!

We have been to Madrid a few times before and have done various tours so we decided to try something different. This one did not disappoint. There was supposed to be another group joining us but they did not show so it was just the three of us. Our storyteller Eva ( I’m terrible with names so forgive me if I got the name wrong) was such a great storyteller and has you participate in the story. She carried a lantern the whole way and when the sun finally set it the tour took on a more “mysterious” feel. You learn about the inquisition and how so many clues and reminders are left all over Madrid. There’s lots of walking and I had an injured knee and I was totally fine. Would definitely recommend.
Wish he had a microphone

David was a very enthusiastic and entertaining tour guide! He kept us involved and interested the whole 2 hours. I appreciated that this tour was in the evening, after the sun went down, because it was still 33*C/ 91*F at 8:30pm! The only reason I gave him 4 instead of 5 is because at times there was a lot of background noise, and I had trouble hearing him. David, please use a microphone:)
Good evening tour

This was a good evening tour to take our first night in Madrid. The tour guide was nice and very knowledgeable. American so she was very easy to understand.
