Excellent attention from the guide who received us at the meeting point, (Ana) extreme punctuality, comfort, cleanliness of the vehicle and responsible handling of the journey. Ms. Nieves is a magnificent guide at the destination, super attentive, cordial and professional. The highly recommended tour, Alcala de Henares a destination without waste! Operator service is highly recommended.

A spectacular script. Starting with the discreet driver who took us and brought us to Alcala safely. A local guide with a lot of knowledge of all history, who took us to know it through universities, churches that are often not touristy, but splendorous, as well as the house of Cervantes, a place to be known by all.

It was good, but all too fast. It would have been better if we had had more time.
