Enrique was not only knowledgeable about Madrid's history, but he had just the right personality for us. We would recommend him to anyone who is interested in Spain's history and how Madrid fits into it all. A well-worthwhile investment in half a day.

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as

Hola! My husband and I will be in Madrid arriving in the early morning of Sunday, May 17th. We plan on attending the Madrid Atletico v Barcelona game that afternoon (which time is not yet confirmed). We are interested in a private food and sight seeing tour that could start mid morning (we arrive from Mallorca around 830am). We would prefer that the cost of the food is included in the price. We plan on taking a day trip to Salamanca on Monday then leave Madrid for Toledo on Tuesday. Do you have tours in Salamanca? I see that you do have tours in Toledo that include train passes. We would be interested in private car ride to Toledo on Tuesday with a guided tour or perhaps simply scheduling a tour in Toledo if we plan on taking the 920 train down (but only one way as we plan to stay in Toledo Tuesday night). I look forward to your suggestions, options and pricing, please. Thank you, Erin Moran
