Pepe was a terrific guide and historian about Spain and Madrid. We were especially interested in the Jewish history which Pepe was very knowledgeable about. He was very engaged and gave a unique and interesting perspective, different from what other guides shared with us on our stops through the country. He was also very flexible and accommodated us in the late afternoon of New Years Eve. Highly recommend! Thank you Pepe!

Pepe was a really amazing guide, extremely knowledgeable and friendly, and my wife and I had just a fantastic time talking to him about Madrid and Spain and all the things that we saw on the tour. By the end of the tour he was much more than a tour guide, but a friend. With highly recommend him to anyone who comes to Madrid.

Pepe is an engaging, knowledgeable guide. We saw all the key sights in Madrid as he intertwined the history of Spain and pointed out things you would not know or see on a typical tour. We ended the day at a neighborhood restaurant for lunch and enjoyed the unique experience and the Jewish perspective he brought to the tour. Jeff and Nancy, Minneapolis, MN

Gary SchneiderUnited States
A very interesting and meaningful tour of the city of Madrid. We saw a variety of areas and gained a more in-depth background of the history and cultural differences that took place. Having a guide with Pepe's knowledge and enthusiasm to share his information made this a much more worthwhile visit.

Pepe is a wonderful guide and we were thrilled with our walking tour of Madrid. He is extremely knowledgeable and he told us many interesting stories, along with the history of Madrid, all without bombarding us with wordy historical facts . We really appreciated that about him. We have no hesitation in recommending Pepe for a wonderful experience in equtiful Madrid.

This tour was not at all as described. Pepe walked very far in fast and far in front of us the entire time. I apologized that the kids were slow and as we were all jet lagged but he continued to walk at a pace where we could not talk or ask questions along the way. He stopped twice to give us a bit of history but nothing as described on this site. It was uncomfortable hot and we felt like we were just following a stranger on a rambling walk through Retiro Park with no information. Waste of time.
Terri KatzUnited States
Pepe answered everyone of my annoying emails sent to him in the weeks before our arrival AND he delivered exactly what we requested. A great way to start your trip with Pepe providing history and background overview of most of Madrid. Will spend the next 2 days visiting the museums and squares and use audio tours. We also got to stop for delicious tapas and then gelato. Highly recommend tour with Pepe.

Pepe was a fantastic tour guide. He guided my wife and I through Madrid with a great blend of history and present. He told great stories and we had such a great time walking the streets of Madrid with him. Our tour concluded with an amazing feast at a local restaurant. Pepe is also an experienced Sommelier which provided a nice touch at the end when we capped of our tour with some great wine!

Pepe was an excellent tour guide today. He gave us a great tour and overview of Madrid and historic events. He kept us all interested and entertained. We were a group of 6 ranging from early 20s to 83 and we all enjoyed the tour and thought we learned something Thank you
Pepe was a very knowledgeable, personable, entertaining tour guide. He made the history of Spain and Madrid so interesting. We would recommend Pepe to any visitors to Madrid.
Pepe was fantastic! He was on time and met us at our hotel. He was so energetic and knowledgable of the city and the country! I learned so much in the time we spent with Pepe and he got un into a wonderful local restaurant that was lined up for hours. He stayed to help us order, given we didn't speak the language. Awesome day all around and highly recommend having him as your tour guide.

Pepe was very informative about the history of Madrid.
Pepe has obviously given a lot of thought to how he can tell the thousands of years of political and social history of Madrid in an entertaining way. We loved how he interwove the many stories into the places we walked to. Being a great guide takes intelligence, charm and a genuine interest in your subject matter. Pepe has this. Highly recommend.

Pepe was a wonderful guide for us in Madrid. His English was excellent. His knowledge of the history and culture was very good. He was able to keep a 13 year old girl interested with relevant information. I would recommend him to my friends.
David SullivanUnited States

Pepe is one of our all time great tour guides - friendly, entertaining and extremely knowledgeable. The walking tour of Madrid takes you down the small alley ways of Madrid's history. His focus on small details quickly adds to one's understanding of the city and culture. Eating tapas at his non-touristy cafes is a culinary delight.
James R.United States
Our first ever trip to Madrid and our first ever experience using ToursByLocals. We wanted to start with a guide who could provide a solid foundation to start us off for two weeks and Spain and we chose Pepe A. based on his stellar reviews. HE WAS EVEN BETTER THAN THE REVIEWS with such a deep knowledge of Spain and such clear English (we know no Spanish), there's a reason he's the #1 guide in Madrid. If he has availability, don't hesitate, book him now-we also took his excellent Segovia tour.
Elaine KleinUnited States
Pepe is a fabulous guide and a fountain of knowledge about his country. We truly enjoyed his company and knowledge and highly recommend him. When we return to Madrid, we will certainly use his services again! Thank you Pepe!
