What people are saying about Retiro Park

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.

Ask for Beth if you want to enjoy Madrid like a native!

Beth is a great combination of personality, humor and knowledge. Her sometimes irreverent insights gave us knowledge not always available to a visitor. Her artistic perceptions borne of her own life experience enhanced every chapter of our tour. We'll never forget the story she shared of how she and her new husband received the blessing of their marriage at La Torre de Oro (Plaza Mayor). She is a special person.

This activity has been fabulous; by far it has been the best on my trip. After her I felt that I learned things and had information that I didn't have before. I highly recommend it, and our guide Beth; artist, bilingual and great connoisseur of the city of Madrid with great ease to transmit information and knowledge.

Very good experience, with Irene as a guide

Irene knew how to answer with solvency the questions we asked her and made the tour of the park, despite the large number of people, very enjoyable
