Mari Ikeda was my personal guide on April 4, 2018, in Kyoto, Japan Mari was knowledgable and extremely helpful, especially in getting around the city using public transportation. I changed our itinerary a couple of times before the 4th, and she was extremely accommodating and flexible. We even went to the Kyoto train station in advance of my taking a bullet train back to Tokyo so I'd have a better understanding of the process. She also chose a great place for lunch! I highly recommend Mari!

A great tour! I loved it. I'm a gift shop junkie, so the only downside is that we didn't have time to go to the gift shop at El Escorial, but Valley of the Fallen carries a lot of the same stuff, so just know before you go!

The tour brings us to two of the interesting attractions that's approximately an hour plus away from central Madrid. Overall the tour is a convenient way to visit the attractions but felt that the tour should be slightly longer so that more time spent at each venue. We had the tour from 9am until around 230pm and there was no stop for lunch - this should have been communicated earlier on.

I love the Escorial and I have been there many times with different tour operators. However, this visit was so chaotic and the time so short actually inside the Escorial, that I would recommend a more organized company. They picked us up from our hotel but shuffled us around to a different bus and all of this took over an hour. The actual time inside the Escorial was barely an hour. The tour guide was good, but her colleague was hurrying her up to get us through the building and back on the bus to see the Valley of the Fallen. We took the tour in Spanish and our guide was clever enough to get us into the chapel or church before mass had begun but the other group didn't even get into the church and they were finished with the whole tour before we were. If it's a half-day tour, I recommend at least two hours inside the Escorial. That is the bare mínimum. Also, it would be great to find a tour of the Escorial that didn't include the Valley of the Fallen.

Both of these places are amazing! The tour guide was great, really knowledgeable and added so much to the tour. The only thing I would change is an extra half an hour at the Valley of the Fallen. It is so big it takes all the time just to walk through leaving you feeling rushed. It is a minor thing so don't let it put you off doing the tour - the sights are fabulous!

Excellent local guide! Diana made the trip very enjoyable. I would have wished for 10 minutes to get a quick coffee or chocolate before we left the bus stop. Also, wished for 5 minutes in the gift shop.

Very good tour with knowledgeable guide. Confirmation notice advises there will be a hotel pick-up. There is no vehicle pick up. The representative comes to the hotel and walks participants several blocks to a bus, then you transfer to another bus where the tour actually starts. The tour and tour guide were excellent, but people who are considering this tour need to know there's a lot of walking.
