It was an amazing tour! Carlos is a very kind, helpful person with a great sense of humor and vast knowledge about the history of Madrid. He showed us variety of places, talked not only about the history but also about the lifestyle, traditions and gave us great recommendations where to eat and have a drink (everything so delicious). This tour was unforgettable and much better than others in which I took part. I truly recommend to choose purple umbrella because is the best way to start your trip in Madrid. Carlos did an amazing job!
