Excellent introduction to Madrid with knowledgeable and helpful guides. WE got to see all the main tourist attractions with good insight into the history of this city.The walking tour of the central core including Plaza Mayor, tips on restaurants etc were most helpful. This was a morning tour and left us with the afternoon to return to the places we wanted to explore in more depth.
