Carmen’s knowledge of history was wonderful. We would have liked a bit more tour of the old buildings within the area, although what we learned about the cathedral and university were wonderful.

Carmen is delightful and very knowledgeable of Salamanca and specific details of Spanish history. We had communicated by email some requests to visit particular places and she was able to cover these in our walking tour. ¡Muchas gracias , Carmen!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure enjoy a day with both of you. Hasta pronto. Un abrazo

Carmen was absolutely fabulous! She is extremely knowledgeable and told us so many interesting stories. She was also fantastic with our 11-year-old son. She quickly figured out what he would like and kept him entertained. I highly recommend her.

Carmen was a very good tour guide. I did feel a little rushed at times.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr Moore First of all, thank you very much for your nice words about my job. And I am very sorry if you didn´t understand me. Those “graffities” which I showed you, were made by the students, as I told you, they are from XIIIc. until XVIII c. A lot of time before Franco ¡¡¡ During Franco time, they copied them and used them as a fascistic symbol. With the time these paintings were taking off from the walls.
Carmen is passionate about Salamanca her city and imparts so much information without being too serious or heavy. She paced our tour to suit us and we saw and learned so much about the city and Spain too. If you are looking to learn a little about history, religion, politics and the Spanish outlook and lifestyle then this tour is for you and it will not disappoint. Thank you Carmen for a great insight into Salamanca - I can't recommend you too highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. It was just wonderful to meet both of you¡¡ Take care Carmen

Wonderful tour of the beautiful city of Salamanca! Carmen managed to bring the history and culture of the city alive with her insightful and interesting facts. So much to see, so little time, therefore, we will be visiting again very soon, hopefully with Carmen as our guide.

Carmen's love for her home town makes this tour unique. She explains the culture and history of Salamanca with humor, passion, and intelligence.

Carmen did an excellent job introducing us to Salamanca in a very compressed time (day-trip from Madrid). She was further challenged by our arrival late in the morning because things close in Salamanca during the afternoon for siesta. She knows the city well and was able to address all of our questions. She provided good recommendations for the remainder of our day after she had to leave.
Very nice guide, friendly & knowlwdgeable A good experience ........... Thanks Mike Tait
