We really enjoyed Mayte's tour of El Escorial. It was just the right length of time. She really knew her facts. Her English is perfect and easy to understand. We had a great tour. We would call upon her again if we come back to the Madrid/Toledo area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your comment!I It would love to see you back.

Mayte is a wonderful guide, knowledgable, passionate about her homeland and sensitive and thoughtful to the needs of those in her care. She covered every important detail in the Escorial, and as an extra treat, walked us through the village unusually decorated for Christmas. The only drawback was using public transportation. Had we been asked, we would have gladly booked a car and driver.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your advice!

Mayte presented an excellent and detailed historical picture of the Escorial; some background preparation is a good idea to benefit from the deep texture of the tour. We took a very comfortable bus from Madrid to the Escorial - being escorted by Mayte was a definite plus.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comment and advise.

Mayte is a pleasant and very knowledgeable guide who enriched my experience at El Escorial. I will definitely consider booking her again for my next trip to Madrid. It was also fun making use of the local public transport to get there. El Escorial is an impressive sight with a lot of intriguing history and well worth a visit.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your comment! I hope to see you soon back.

This was our third tour with Mayte over an 8 day stay in Madrid, and confirms our previous 5 star rankings. Mayte's knowledge is astonishing and she makes the history and art come alive for you. Her personality and approach are just wonderful; it is like visiting with a friend. There seems to be a community of guides, and I expect you can find others who are good - but I don't think you could find anyone better. And don't miss El Escorial.
