Ernesto has an unbelievable level of knowledge with regard to the Prado and all the art within. he is a walking encyclopedia of the great masters and he mentions footnotes of sorts about paintings even when just passing by them. i learned a wealth of information about Spain, the Kings, the famous masters and how Spain was interconnected with Europe at large. Ernesto is very comfortable to be with. this is the tour guide you want to hire!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Gracias John!! I am flattered!! Have a great time and come back soon.. Toledo and Segovia awaits!

Our tour with Ernesto was one of the highlights of our visit to Madrid and the area. His knowledge of Toledo was extensive and he was able to make this historic city come alive. He was flexible and offered us options so that the tour was truly one that we could totally appreciate. I would encourage anyone who has an interest in this great city to take the tour with Ernesto.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Susan, very nice words, I truly consider a honor you had such a great day in Toledo and I contributed to enhance the experience. Muchas gracias and see you next time, who knows!

I plan to refer all my friends visiting Spain to Ernesto and plan on using his services when I'm in Spain next year. Ernesto is a guide I would HIGHLY recommend. We used his services for THREE days on three separate tours. His knowledge of his tours is impressive; its clear he studied art and history. His English is wonderful: Clear, loud and NO PROBLEMS with understanding him. He's clearly bilingual.

My wife and I had a great half-day tour from Ernesto. Ernesto was very responsive with questions/arrangements prior to the tour and tailored the experience to our low-key tour preferences. We wandered around the city while Ernesto pointed out the sights and provided some historical perspective to them. We picked up a lot of great insight into Madrid which we wouldn't have gotten with Ernesto's expertise.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Eric! Muchas gracias for such nice words. We had a great time indeed, I love your slow and enjoyable way of enjoying the cities. You are great travelers! And make sure keep travelling no matter what all say.See you around, Take care amigos!

We had an absolutely terrific time exploring Toledo with Ernesto. He set up everything for us including trains, and he did an excellent job taking us through the city, including stops as needed for the kids. The history and stories of the city were easily understood, and had we seen the El Greco painting without him explaining it to us it would have been a shame. I wish we could keep him for our upcoming Prado tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Muchas gracias Douglas!We had a great time together,I enjoyed a lot too.Take care all and enjoy the rest of your trip.Hasta pronto familia!

Where do you start with Ernesto and Toledo - a great guide and a great city equals a perfect day. The tour was extremely well planned, starting with a panoramic tour by car and ending with a walk back to the train station. The tour traced the history of city with important stops to demonstrate how Toledo went from a Roman outpost to an important city in the Spanish empire. This tour felt like we were with a local friend who cared about our experience. Overall, a great experience!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Muchas gracias Familia!I also had a great great time with you.I am very happy you loved my country Hope to see you again!!

This was our second tour with Ernesto, another great experience! He was extremely flexible when preparing this tour for our family; he was able to connect our trip to Toledo, the day before, with the Segovia/Escorial tour. He made the trip very interesting and memorable. His knowledge of Spain's History is an asset to anyone who decides to tour with him, as he has travel across Spain and many other places and he has the uncanny ability to set the context of his explanation in a very interesting way.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Muchas muchas gracias! I try my best to make History as much interesting and funny as possible. Take care all of you. Saludos a la familia!

Ernesto provided an excellent walking tour of Old Madrid. He is very knowledgable and interesting. We felt like we got a very good introduction to the areas we toured which provided a great foundation for the rest of our stay. His tour greatly exceeded our expectations!
