Lexi is one of a kind! A lovely human being and very knowledgeable about Spain's Inquisition period. She is a great storyteller, sharing the narrative with such emotion, that she was able to take us to this medieval life, in a fun and informative way. We recommend her walking tour for anyone looking to know more about this important period, or if you are trying to understand Spain's complex composition in general as this period shaped much of Spain's character that we see today in Madrid.

Lexi was knowledgeable, friendly, and above all passionate. Questions were welcomed and encouraged and the tour was an absolute treasure on our trip. Lexi’s knowledge on the inquisition should be spread far and wide.

Lexi was super kind and intelligent and so informative of history in general! We truly appreciated her knowledge of the Spanish Inquisition and Madrid in general! I would 100% recommend her tours!

An amazing way to get to know the city! My friends and I had a blast, and we can't wait to do it again on our next visit 😊
