El toque con Jose Manuel ha sido excelente, es un hombre que sabe muchísimo sobre la ciudad y la historia, tiene datos muy interesante sobre la creación de los símbolos de Madrid y la construcción de los edificios. Nos sorprendió muy gratamente su implicación y la pasión que pone al relatar los acontecimientos más importantes ocurridos en los diferentes sitios que te enseña. Recomendable al cien por cien, sin duda repetiremos con los otros tours que ofrecen esta empresa con este guía excepcional.
