We had a wonderful informative walking tour of Madrid and the Royal Palace with Luis. He is pleasant, informative, and very thorough. We learned and saw much more than we anticipated! His English is excellent and he brought the history of the city to life for us.

What a wonderful tour of Madrid and the Prado! Luis is a fantastic guide. Walking the streets of Madrid with David was fascinating. He knows the history and also wonderful anecdotes. He gave us great tips on fun things to do and places to go. The tour of the Prado was excellent as well, appealing to adults and teenagers alike. I definitely would recommend David as a tour guide and hope someday to do another tour with him.

David was a great tour guide! He was on time and very friendly. We took the 3.5 hour tour around Madrid and were able to see so much! David was very informative and kept a good pace for our group of four. Our favorite thing was learning about the nuns in the convent and then going back the next day to buy the cookies they make! David explained how it works and it was a neat experience! We have taken several Tours By Locals in various European cities and will continue to do so because of guides like you!

We had a delightful day with Luis! He was wonderful with our three kids, ages 13, 10 and 10. I was worried that the kids might get bored on a 5-hour tour, but they listened to everything Luis had to say. I'm especially appreciative that they still remember everything they learned. Thank you, Luis! I don't think I'll ever tour another major European city without a local guide. I can't say enough positive things about our day with Luis. He was helpful, informative, punctual, and polite.

I cannot say enough positive things about David. His knowledge of Madrid and Toledo is superb. His passion for his job, city and country is evident. He is a very nice and compassionate young man who was extremely kind and respectful to us throughout out tour. We ere four seniors and he was there to assist us through everything. Our tours was so informative, adventurous and fun. David is an awesome teacher who loves to share his knowledge and has a great sense of humor as well. Ask for David.

Luis is an extraordinary tour guide. We spent two days with him, taking his "Madrid of the Habsburgs and the Royal Palace" the first day and his "Madrid of the Bourbons and Prado Museum" the second day. His in-depth knowledge of history and art and his passion for his home city of Madrid made everything come alive. Luis is articulate, knowledgeable, passionate and personable. He paces his tours and his "skip the line" ticketing wizzed us passed ticketing lines that went around the block. +5star rating!

Luis is very professional, courteous and well planned tour guide, whom we enjoyed as our private tour guide in Madrid. Luis is so well organized, including printed information for us to routinely explain historic importance of various locations. Luis took us around by foot, entire Madrid City center and the next several days when we were own, we realized how helpful Luis was. His full day immersion tour is worth every single penny. He even suggested to avoid his time on Palace and used on other places.

Luis David made Madrid come alive in our personalized tour. We only had three hours to fit in a tour and he did a great job mixing historical facts with stories about the lives of the historical figures to make the tour informative and enjoyable. I know we just hit the highlights of Madrid and can't wait to get back for a more in-depth tour with David.

Excellent tour of the physical and historical complexity of Madrid. Luis David is extremely knowledgeable and a pleasure to be with. He combines well the grand historical sweep of the various cultures that have built the city over time with the concrete examples of how the structure and city layouts reflect that history. Outstanding and worth every penny.

Luis was an INCREDIBLE guide! His knowledge of Spanish History is truly remarkable. I could not have been more pleased with his tour. Luis went above and beyond to not only give me the tour I requested, but added many stops throughout the city that I would have missed were it not for him. I will request him again when I'm in Spain!!!

Luis David is an excellent tour guide. He gave us a great tour of Madrid in english with a great explanation of the history of each site. He was also very easy to work with, flexible, and accommodating. We had an unexpected emergency occur at the end of tour and even though he didn't need to, Luis David stayed with our group to help translate. He is a great tour guide and even better person. We highly recommend him.
