Caroline loves her job ! Her enthusiasm for Jerez is evident. Her knowledge is outstanding and comes from in-depth study. She’s a person of immense integrity and continued the tour well over the stated time. She created such a connection between the group members (8) that we spontaneously decided to have a drink afterwards. That turned into 2.5 hours of drinks, lunch and laughs . A guide beyond praise. Book Caroline and you’ll agree !

We had a really enjoyable couple of hours with Caroline exploring old town Jerez. We were a small group which allowed for a far more personal experience. Caroline demonstrated a high level of knowledge and pride in Jerez but also added extra value by discussing with us wider Andalucian and Spanish factors. The walk was really good fun.

Caroline's knowledge of the history of the city was amazing which reflects her passion for Jerez. Her cheerful personality added to one of the best experiences we have ever had on a Guru walk which we have done in many cities. Thank you Caroline we absolutely loved it all. Superb!🤗
