Fue muy entretenido. Se nota que el guía está muy formado en la materia y no duda en aclarar cualquier duda, además de ser muy amable. Fue un tour magnífico.

Fantástico!! Gracias infinitas a Carlos, nuestro guía, por habernos enseñado los sitios de Madrid que fueron clave durante el desarrollo de la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Me he llevado muchas sorpresas y anécdotas en una zona de Madrid que frecuento mucho pero ni por asomo me esperaba que guardara tanta historia 😳 Es uno de los tours temáticos más atractivos de los que he ido y del cuál es cierto que no sabía qué esperar (no sabía nada de espionaje o espías…) Lo recomiendo 100% para aquellos curiosos (y no) que les gustaría conocer un Madrid diferente y la importancia de la capital en la historia del siglo XX! Me llevo una lección de historia!! Carlos está muy bien documentado y lo hace ameno 😃 Gracias!!!
