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!

Really great to have been able to go through to see these both sites. The guides were extremely helpful and had great information.

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!

Very interesting and quite spectacular seeing the basilica at valley of the fallen. The tour through the monastery was also very interesting but unfortunately we were not able to go into the basilica due to masses we were told but there was none happening at the time. However overall a very enjoyable few hours.

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!

Great tour. Guide was informative and spoke English clearly. A little disappointing that both locations didn't allow for photographs inside, but still a very enjoyable tour.
