First ~30 minutes were spent in a cafe with good illustrative maps and pictures to give a good understanding of both the reasons behind the Civil War and the actual facts of the war itself. The tour gave a good opportunity for conversation that contextualized things. Since it was 1-on-1 we could both bring our personal expriences to bear on discussions of lingering impacts of the War. I thoroughly enjoyed the 3 hours (although my joints hurt afterwards!)
Jesus is incredibly knowledgeable, engaging and willing to answer all our odd questions. We learned soooo much! Plus he was willing to take extra time explaining the rare pieces of Picasso at the Museo Reina Sofia — great tour guide! And if you want to learn Spanish we highly recommend Jesus.
Doreen is extremely knowledgable and pleasant. Wonderful and educational time.
