The tour was wonderful! Our only problem is we were forced to take two tuktuks because we had 5 people. We could have fit all 5 on one tuktuk. This meant we had to pay $90 per tuktuk, $180 total, which is why I said it was not a good value.

We really enjoyed this activity - it was a great way for our family of four to tour the city of Madrid. Our tour guide was great! Only complaint was that the seats were a little uncomfortable but overall I would highly recommend.

We really enjoyed the tour, we like to do these in each city to learn some history, culture and see some places we wouldn’t see on foot.

Great! The guide told very interesting stories and you could see the most important attractions in Madrid

Tour was excellent, loved the variety of food. Leticia knows her stuff!
