Jerez has been a pleasant surprise for us. A beautiful city with its own character full of magical corners and bathed in the scent of orange blossom. The organization was perfect, the meeting place clearly explained and the start on time. Our guide Pilar has explained everything to us very well, being instructive and fun at the same time. A charming person and an excellent professional.

Maria was a most passionate guide who imparts so much information about Jerez. She clearly loves ecclesiastical architecture and we learnt to look at Church facades more intensely. We look forward to our ttio to Cadiz today with the knowledge she has given us about private houses, sour or sweet oranges etc. Thank you so much Maria.

The best way to visit any town is to take a guided walk

We had been with our guide Inma earlier in the day as as we were thee only people on the walk she changed the the time to fit in with our needs and took us on an interesting walk around the city. She showed us many palaces and local architecture and explained it all in detail. Also showed us a very good cake shop which we walked back to at the end of the tour.
