Visita muy amena y con explicaciones muy participativas y completas. Manuel es muy atento y la visita se hace corta, no te das cuenta de las 3 horas que dura. Totalmente recomendable.

Un placer haber hecho el tour de los Jardines de La Granja con Manuel, buen comunicador, bien documentado y gran profesional. Tuvimos un tour privado, ya que al final el grupo sólo éramos dos personas y no lo suspendió. Lo dicho... un placer!

Response from Manuel
