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.

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.

Pepe was awesome!!!!! We have spent over a month in Spain, yet his history really filled in the blanks. We had never really understood the breadth of the Spanish Inquisition before, nor the role religion played in Spain's history. His culinary background was an extra treat. We ended up in a small place for lunch not discovered by tourists - and had the best Jamon ever. Then he set us up with a Cider House experience in San Sebastian that was also very special. If he is available book him!!!

Pepe is an outstanding guide! He knows his city, country and history very well and is able to make the tour interesting, informative and personal. We felt as if we really saw Madrid and learned a great deal about its past, present and maybe a bit of insight into its future. We would use him again in a heart beat!!

Do not recommend. Overpriced and misleading. This is not a tapas crawl and not local secret places. 90 percent of places we visited were what we call a tourist attractions and sites. Tapas crawl did not happen and price did not include the tapas food. We paid for everything. Guide did speak good English and was very knowledgeable about history of Madrid and Spain. Not worth the money. Do it on your own. You will be more successful.

We just spent 2 great days touring with Pepe. He's very knowledgeable, funny and energetic. He's a wonderful source for delicious restaurant suggestions. We are very happy we decided to spend a couple of our days in Madrid touring with him. And when we come back, we will most certainly do it again! Thank you Pepe!

I could not say enough great things about Pepe! Just brilliant! Suffice to say that we had an amazing time! Pepe was fun and great with the kids. Amazingly knowledgable and insightful - we now see Madrid in a whole new light. From it's fascinating history to it's modern culture as seen by true locals. I honestly can strongly recommend Pepe to anyone visiting Madrid - don't think about it, just make a booking !!! Thank you Pepe for a great day, it made all the difference to our first holiday in Madrid!!:)

My family and I just spent 4.5 hours with Pepe who graciously sared with us his Madrid. A true professional, Pepe was keen to our pace (yes, let's walk more!) and desire to hear every story he cared to share. We were provided fascinating history and interesting facts. Pepe was a perfect balance of historian, storyteller and entertainer. Highly recommend. Muchas gracias, Pepe!

GREAT!!!!! Pepe was sweet enough to invite a friend who was an art expert to give us some more information on the art in Madrid. His expertise is cuisine so he arranged a luncheon for us at a friend's restaurant. Pepe is fantastic and we had such a great time!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Carl & Lyda for such an amazing and entertaining day! You are a charming couple to go along! The pleasure was mine to host you.
