Very poor !!! extremely disappointed not well organised, was taken to the venue and the show had already started, we were seated in the far corner of the room when there were a lo of other tables free in the venue. We were looking at the dancers backs!!!! The show abruptly stopped nothing was explained we had to ask what was happening only to be told that the show had ended after approximately an hour but within that hour they took quite a number of breaks. Comparing this to a flamenco show we seen in Barcelona...well there is no comparison, the Barcelona show was extremely well organised seating was excellent and we were given what we paid for a full flamenco show which was also cheaper. Extremely disappointing!!!
This did not even deserve one star, extremely disappointed!!! The advertising for this excursion is very poor, no where in the advertising or communication does it mention that there will be considerable walking needed. We were 30 minutes late leaving due to two people arriving late. When we arrived at the El Escorial Monastery we had to trek for approximately 20 minutes through cobbled streets to get to the palace (which is all very nice but when you have walking issues is not so nice) there were a number of people on this tour that were also not aware of the walking needed, who were also elderly. The tour guide we had was very abrupt and boardering rude!! She marched off in front of us, tell people to hurry not caring about the people finding it difficult. On exiting the Monastery we then trekked back to the bus and was told that we were not able to use the rest rooms as we had to go, two elderly people went to the toilet making us even later. We left for Valley of the Fallen which was the place I really wanted o see, when we arrived we were told we had 25 minutes at this venue!!!!! which is absolutely absurd!!!! The walk up to the Basillica and through the basillica and back out would have taken much more time than we were given, as the basillica is 300ft in length. We ended up no seeing the Basillica as there just wasn't the time, by the time we visited the rest room it was time to board the bus again!!!!! Extremely disappointed, this was meant to be the highlight of our trip to Madrid but unfortunately was a total let down. PLease beware when booking!!!
