Excellent experience thanks to David. Very interesting explanations in addition to being a pleasant company during the journey. On the other hand, to say that the visit to Casa Ciriaco did not live up to the expected quality. We did not doubt that once it was an emblematic place of Madrid but they served us an assortment of tapas that were clearly kitchen scraps ... it is true that the price of the visit was adjusted, but you can serve less quantity and quality, or replace the covers included with explanations of the place and then give the option to consume what the customer wants, paying it.

Interesting park tour. The guide very very nice and prepared. Good Tapas tasting. The restaurant is a very characteristic old location, frequented by locals, who maintain the traditions. Experience to do
