A great tour and riding on the tuk tuk is a great and efficient way to see lots of sights in the city all while getting the same info without the long walk! Our guide had excellent knowledge, including some great recommendations on local places to eat and drink. Recommend!

Fuimos a un tour por La Latina donde Delfina nos hizo un recorrido por sus calles contando la historia de los lugares memorables y de sus protagonistas. Vivo en Madrid y me hizo descubrir lugares que aun no conocía con historias maravillosas. En el recorrido hicimos 3 paradas para degustar comidas típicas y probar distintos vinos donde Delfina nos conto la historia de cada uno, también abordando información de los vinos y de las bodegas españolas. Lo recomiendo ampliamente para hacerlo tanto por turistas como por residentes ya que las historias de la ciudad no son tan conocidas a nivel popular. Delfina maravillosa en todos los aspectos, su conocimiento y simpatía son primordiales a la hora de elegir una guía. Muchas gracias Delfina por habernos dado una gran noche de cultura y disfrute con mis amistades!

Una experiencia muy enriquecedora. Un par de horas llenas de cultura y saber por parte de la guía, haciendo hincapié siempre en las preferencias que los visitantes íbamos buscando. Muy recomendable para cualquiera que quiera pasar una tarde distinta y algo más fría en este Madrid tan caluroso.

La ruta no fué excesivamente larga, lo cual es de agradecer cuando vas con niños. Las explicaciones de josé, el guía, fueron muy claras y fácilmente entendibles para gente no muy experta en botánica, como es mi caso. Si volvemos por El retiro, la repetiremos sin dudarlo.
