Can't say enough positive things about this tour. Hector, our guide, is a treasure - extremely knowledgable (BA in architecture, PhD in history), enthusiastic & interested in his subject matter, and perhaps most importantly, able to convey everything in a clear, concise & engaging manner. He's also a super nice guy. He really brought the history of Madrid & Spain alive for us. He also provided lots of recos for other things to do, places to eat, etc. This was our 5th or 6th Context tour and while we have enjoyed them all, this one was definitely the best.
Jesus' passion and knowledge of Madrid was impressive. Even better was his flexibility to expand on our interests, and deliver a multitude of interesting, often unknown, fun facts. The tour helped us fall in love with Madrid and want to learn more about the fascinatingly beautiful city. The tour exceeded our expectations. Thank-you.
Chris was a pleasure, and the tour was a wonderful re-introduction to Madrid.
