The tour about Madrid and its spies was absolutely superb! Best plan for an evening, two hours of solid learning and entertaining. I'm from Madrid and have lived here most of my life and have learned more in 2 hours with Carlos than in many years! His knowledge about history and the spy scene is vast and he also makes it very engaging. He supports his talks with extra resources during the walk and afterwards, allowing us to learn more about what he covered. All in all absolutely recommendable and the best way to spend our Friday evening!

Sin duda ha sido estupendo porque se ve que Carlos sabe muchísimo del tema y se nos ha hecho super corto. Siendo de Madrid había muchas cosas que no conocíamos.
