Ignacio is the best guide!
jodiec587, 25-09-2022
We booked a tuk tuk tour with Viator and this was the provider. Our guide, Ignacio, was prompt (with very short notice) and spoke excellent English! He explained his tour to us and made excellent use of the time we had - avoiding traffic and taking pictures of us at several interesting locations. Would highly recommend him for an informative, interesting tour that will give you a great overview of Madrid.
We’ll be back someday.
