We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Sebastian. He is born and bred Madrid, and it shows. He has a love for the town, and it shows in his enthusiasm and knowledge. He is funny and engaging and tells the history in a fun and easy way. We highly recommend booking this tour, and for those not looking to be walking long distances this tour should be for you. The time flew by, and we learned so much.
