The best thing about our Madrid trip was the city tour with Jenny !!!

Thanks to Jenny we got a wonderful overview of the city of Madrid. It was super entertaining and very interesting. One can only warmly recommend this city tour, especially if this is your first time in the city. Jenny was able to answer all of the group's questions and gave each of them individual tips, be it about going to a restaurant, tapas bars, viewing opportunities, visiting museums or the area around Madrid. It was just great!

Amazing how Anne did the tour. Sympathetic, competent!

Great, fantastic tour in wonderful weather in mid-December. Anne designed the tour individually according to our wishes. We really liked her open and spontaneous manner, but also her great knowledge, which she passed on in a very humorous way. Predicate 'unique' and highly recommended! We were 4 adults. People from one family.
