This was an excellent tour and the guide was lovely. Escorial was a beautiful place and well worth the visit. There wasn't much time at the Valley of the Fallen but it was still worth a visit. The basilica and cross are astounding to see.
Amazing !!! We have been everywhere in Europe, but it was something special.
MUST GO !!!
Beautiful place to see and didn't take up the whole day so you could still do things with your afternoon!
The trip was very well organized. Guide was realy nice and gave us a lot of interesting information
Our tour to El Escorial Monastery Was Excellent! We had informative guides and when we reached our destination they devided us into english and non english which was very helpful!!! We were also lucky that the Valley of the Fallen had just recently opened so were able to have a wonderful tour there as well!!!!
My comments ditto from my submission regarding the Toledo half-day tour.
Thank you again.

Excellent and informative guide. And what a monastery/palace/place of learning. A must for anyone interested in Spanish history! Very memorable.
Windy cold day, El Escorial is at a higher elevation so be prepared dress-wise depending on the time of year. Our guide was very knowledgeable and accommodating.
The Valley of the Fallen was closed for renovations, so we spent an extended time at El Escorial which was great! The guide was fantastic. I was impressed because she had to give the tour in English, Spanish and Italian and did it phenomenally!
El Escorial is fascinating and the small town there is very beautiful. This is a must see location. The tour didn;'t go to the Valley of the Fallen. The guide was excellent, very knowledgeable.
Excellent tour guide and itinerary! My best friend and I enjoyed having extra time at El Escorial since we were not able to visit the Valley of the Fallen.
Escorial Monastery is a beautiful place...tour leader Julia was excellent...it's a pity we couldn't go to Valley of the fallen cause they told us it was closed for the last year
