Andrea was extremely knowledgeable. It was a pleasure having her as our guide !
Barbara was extremely knowledgeable. She was a great wealth of information about the Spanish monarchy. I would highly recommend her!
Enrique is a terrific ambassador for the Escorial, Spain, and Context Travel. He understands the Escorial from the 16th century construction stones which you can reach out and touch to the frescos, sculpture and painting that form the final layer of its décoration. Enrique will transmit this knowledge in such a way that you will share his enthusiasm for the Escorial.
