We spent the better part of 3 days with Pepe in Madrid, Segovia and Toledo. This was the perfect combination of tours and Pepe was the perfect choice to guide us. He is boundlessly knowledgeable about the culture and history of Spain and, in particular, about the historical importance of both Segovia and Toledo. At the same time, Pepe is personable, easy-going, highly engaging, humorous, accommodating and totally flexible. Make time, if at all possible for these tours and don't settle for anyone but Pepe.

Pepe was a fantastic knowledgeable guide. We learned a ton about the beautiful city of Madrid in a short period of time. In retrospect, I would have just done a walking tour and saved myself the cost of a car. Since it was my first time in Madrid, I didn't realize it is a fairly flat walking city vs. Barcelona which was much more spread out with hilltop views. All in all we were very happy with our tour.

Pepe is one of the best guides we've had so far. After we double-booked a tour of Madrid, he accommodated us by changing the itinerary to a tour of the Castle of the Kings . His enthusiasm and knowledge of history bring Spanish history to life for us uninformed tourists. He treated us with patience even though we had complicated his task for the day. His presentation is like a master class in Spanish sociology.
I'm Nani from Indonesia. My family and I went to Madrid for the first time. We're very lucky to meet with Pepe as a our tour guide. During the tour, we went to very interesting places, even both of my children didn't feel bored or tired, very flexible schedule, up to us.

Pepe provided our family: one teenager, two middle aged women, and an 80 year old with a detailed and animated tour of Madrid highlighting the history thru anecdotes, and humor. He clearly anitcipated our wishes supplying the right amount of good conversation, knowledge, and hidden gems. Our time in the city was very limited and his tour made the time we had worthwhile. Kudos to Pepe!

Pepe is the best guide I have ever met. He is knowledgeable, intellectual, communicative. We have had great time with him. I highly recommend Pepe to everybody travelling to Madrid and Toledo.

So for us this was the beginning of 3 days we spent with Pepe in Madrid and surrounds. Madrid is a very cool city, for sure, and this tour is the "Intro to" course; but I assure you it's way cooler when you see it with Pepe. He is a very passionate Spaniard--passionate about wine, food, Spanish history, current world events, and Madrid. His passion will quickly rub off on you and you will fall in love with the city as it is today, despite its complex history. Make sure you ask him about Soap!

Pepe picked us up in a very nice Audi. The car was clean and air conditioned. We have two kids (9 and 7), and Pepe was very attentive to our needs. It was a particularly hot day, and Pepe steered us to a wonderful cafe for drinks and Tapas to cool off. It was an entertaining and educational tour for all involved. Generally speaking, you get what you pay for, and this was no exception. 5 stars.

Pepe was a great guide to Madrid. As a bonus he recommended and made reservations at our restaurants In Madrid. In addition, he made reservations for us in San Sebastián and in route to and in Barcelona.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Richard and Mary, you were great! I love to spend the day with you and go by the city. As for the restaurant reservations, eating good isn´t enough for a person like you and me, you know... only superb chefs and dishes worth the effort!! Enjoy spain!
