Best tapas and tour guide ever
Pedro_L, 16-09-2022
We had an outstanding experience with Carmen our tour guide. She was very knowledgeable, charming, witty and a people person. She made us feel at home and took to very authentic tapas restaurants and memorable landmarks. Her knowledge and love for history and of Madrid was contagious. We will always remember her.
Excellent!

Set aside some time for a very special evening with delicious food, drinks and laughs! Carmen is a wealth of knowledge and so helpful. We actually went back to one of the places when the tour ended for more drinks! Try a very, very refreshing vermut drink to quench the thirst!
Thank you so much Carmen!
