Pepe's deep knowledge and historical perspective was a key element as we walked through this complex and multifaceted city. He was able to weave together the story of Madrid, it's various rulers and the external forces that impacted the city in a superb way.
Great guide, flexible, nice and very good knowledge of the history of the city. We had much fun and a nice tour. Thank you!

My husband and I just spent an amazing afternoon on a guided tour of Madrid with Pepe A. I am a history buff and always seek out tours where I will learn far more than I would from a book. Today did not disappoint. Our tour was more of a cultural immersion into the history, mores , beauties, and current day life of the city. Thank you, Pepe, for doing your job so well. Leslie and Richard Rosiello

The "Must See Sites in Madrid" tour was my first experience with Tours by Locals, and I couldn't have been more pleased. Our guide, Pepe A., really impressed us with his knowledge of Madrid's history and culture and his passion for the city. He is also gregarious and witty and enthusiastic-- the perfect companion for a four-hour walking tour that seemed to fly by. We indeed saw all the major sites, but also learned things from Pepe that most tourists would have missed.

We have had several private tours in Spanish cities, but Pepe was our absolute favorite guide. His perspective is unique and refreshingly honest, about both the beautiful and darker sides of Spanish history. I can't recommend him highly enough! As an added bonus, his restaurant recommendations were phenomenal!
Bobby LapinUnited States
Pepe's knowledge of the history and the details of the city was superb, and we really appreciated it. His pace at times was a bit quick, but that may have been because he wanted to cover so much. His warmth varied at times but, overall, we really enjoyed our tour.

This was a great tour. We did it on our first day in Madrid and Pepe gave a wonderful tour and overview of the area and history of Madrid and Spain. There is a lot of walking but our family 6 handled it well (kids 18,15,13, 9). We enjoyed seeing the park, Cathedral and Palace and this helped us plan or futures tours. Please note we did not go in these places but did go back to visit on separate days. We also enjoyed the tapas bar. This tour is very helpful as an introduction to old Madrid.

Pepe arrived on time and kept us engaged the entire four hours. We were with our three kids ages 10-13. It is a lot of walking but we were prepared for that. I couldn't believe how much Spanish history he gave us in such a short amount of time. He had an ipad with photos and maps to assist in his presentations. Very good tour, highly recommend.

We had an interesting and wonderful time with our personal tour guide Pepe as we walked the neighborhoods of Madrid. Pepe is very well versed in the historical, literary, culinary, and religious aspects of what makes Madrid such a vibrant and dynamic city. He is extremely knowledgeable which makes for interesting dialogue among the group. He has a fantastic personality which radiates to all in your group. He is a very warm and caring individual who tends to the needs of his clients.
