We had a great 3 days exploring corners of Madrid we had not previously visited and getting educated about Diego Valezquez, other significant painters, and their work. Enrique is our "go to" guide whenever we need a guide when we are visiting Madrid. He knows his stuff.
Christopher HernandezUnited States
Perfect food tour. Tried a lot of amazing local food. Enrique was very knowledgeable and knew a lot of great local places. Great sense of humor and very personable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Chris: Was a pleasure spend the day with you and your family around Madrid, thanks a lot for your feedback and we wish to habe you back in Madrid real soon.
Robert HallWarsaw, INDIANA, United States
Enrique was FABULOUS, probably one of the best guides we've had anywhere. He is extremely knowledgeable and engaging towards us (and our two teenaged kids). One of the highlights was the "local" food market where we enjoyed olive oil tastings and a tapa style lunch. If you are thinking of booking a tour in Madrid you must book Enrique.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Robert: It was a pleasure having you and your family in Madrid, thanks for your kind words, and I hope you will come back some time to our city! Best Regards
Sharon Richey-McClendonUnited States
Enrique was so much fun to have as a tour guide. His energy is great and he tells the history like it's the most exciting story in the world. My 91 y/o grandfather and I took a tour with him for an afternoon around Madrid. He was very accommodating to the wheelchair, insisting that he also spent some time pushing it to give me a break. He also took us to four local restaurants, one of which was from the 1640s, and had us try local specialties. It was a great day of talking, eating, and sightseeing!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tyler and Habart, such a pleasure to be with you! Thank you for your coment! Hope tou have you back. Good luck with the stars!

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the Prado Museum with Enrique G. He is personable, knowledgeable, engaging and passionate about art. We learned so much. It is the only way to visit the Prado for us. We learned about the progression of art and technique over time, learned to look at paintings with a different view and had all of our questions answered. 3 hours is hardly enough time to learn about the Prado but we did get a wonderful introduction.
Todd LeidnerUnited States
Wonderful tour with a great guide. We had a great time seeing the city with Enrique and learning the history while enjoying the culture.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks you todd for the feedback, was a pleasure meeting you all, enjoy your journey around our wonderful country! Safe travels
Rob LoweryUnited States
If you are interested in Spanish history, Enrique is surely the guide for you...his knowledge is absolutely staggering! He clearly loves his subject and passes along that excitement to his travelers. He took us to a truly local, neighborhood restaurant for lunch, which was a wonderful experience. When we return to Madrid, we will surely call on Enrique to show us more sights. Thank you, Enrique!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rob: Thank you guys for coming with me around Madrid, was a real pleasure to spend the day with all of you! Thank you for your kind words! Best Regards

Michelle Ritter-TaylorSan Luis Obispo, CA, United States
Enrique was a fantastic guide. It is clear by his enthusiasm and knowledge that he loves his city. Enrique picked us up at our apartment and tailored part of our tour to the neighborhood we are staying in. He has an incredible depth of knowledge about his subject and practical suggestions for where to eat and drink. I would highly recommend a tour by Enrique!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Family: Was a pleasure to have you on board in Madrid, was fantastic walking with you in Madrid. I hope Chris has a blast in Madrid and he decides to return for a longer Period. Very happy about the ham! jejejjeje enjoy it

Matthew WatsonUnited States
We had the pleasure of joining Enrique for a Madrid Gastro tour. I would take this tour again with Enrique in an instant, money well spent. The tour consisted of a perfect blend of local history combined, of course, with excellent food and drink tasting. It's a great way to get more familiar with the local cuisine. Enrique is passionate about Madrid history and culture, without taking himself too seriously. He has a great sense of humor and jovial personality. His English is fluent, FYI.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Matthew: Thank you so much for youe feedback, I hope we can meet up again in this great city. Take care
Julia WalshUnited States
Enrique was terrific for the tour for 5 of us. He is so knowledgable about art history and the context for these highlights and such a pleasant, optimistic, upbeat person. Just great!
Martin KatzUnited States
This was our 2nd tour with Enrique in as many days. He reminded us that Toledo is not his principal venue for guiding, but honestly, we couldn't tell the difference from his knowledge of Madrid the day before. We can't recommend Enrique highly enough. He's not on the TBL list of guides for Toledo, but if you ask, he'll agree to show you this amazing place, and you'd be lucky.
Martin KatzUnited States
Enrique knows Madrid better than I know my own name. We had a full day, walking all over the city, and found him incredibly informative and knowledgeable about Spain's capital. In addition, he is full of personality and very easy to be with. He was flexible, always asking us if we wanted to do the next thing he had in mind. You'd be crazy to use anyone else.
Richard RankinUnited States
Enrique was extremely entertaining while taking us across the wide range of Spanish gastronomic history. He was very dynamic and yet his approach created a real dialogue with us so that he drew from us additional questions that a less dynamic approach might not have been able to achieve. There was a fair amount of walking involved in the tour but we spent far more time in eating establishments and walking or eating the conversation never lagged. A great way to end our tour to Madrid!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Richard: Thank you very much for your great feedback next time we will definitely try anchovies! Taka care, hugs for all
Jasmine JiaUnited States
Enrique is what you dream to have as a guide when you visit Madrid! You would wish you had 3 more tours with him at the end of the tour. He offered everything we needed for our first day to explore Madrid, and 10th day in Spain after visiting several regions. We did a whole day tour mixed with city highlights, history, gardens, and food tasting. We had so much fun discussing historical events, watching storks, learning the local customs, and tasting many tapas at his favorite local places. Book him now!
Sophia Weiner-LightUnited States
I went with a group of 16 teenagers to the Prado. Enrique maintained the interest of our students with their vocabulary, use of technology, and knowledge of the artists and their methods. Enrique was aware of how much information to give our students without overwhelming them with a multitude of data. At the end of the tour, I noticed that the students bought postcards of the art pieces which Enrique most concentrated on. It was a pleasure to learn from Enrique and we hope to continue working with him.
Deborah L.Arlington, TX, United States
Excellent Tour by Enrique! He was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly! It was fun to see very beautiful sights on "the other side!" Couldn't have been better!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi there Deborah, Iam so glad you have enjoyed, isnt it wonferful the other side of Madrid? I hope you are enjoying your wines and the cecina also! Was a great pleasure to show you around.
James SmagalaUnited States

Mikael HansenUnited States
Enrique is one of the best art history and cultural guides we have ever experienced. We felt like we were in the hands of Goya or El Greco with the amazing energy and education that Enrique gave us in explaining the differences in styles and how it all has played important roles in explaining the various historical and religious implications and periods of not only Spain but Europe and the world as a whole since Spain was at one point controlling a vast empire of the world. Gracias Enrique!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You Mikael, was a real pleasure, your words motivate me.to keep learning and learning to become a better guide every day! Thanks again
Lori RothUnited States
Enrique was an excellent tour guide- he was very passionate about Madrid and the history of the beautiful city. The food was amazing and he really listened to us with what we liked to eat and drink. Would definitely recommend this tour to everyone! Word of warning- do not eat before you go and don't make dinner plans...you will be full!
Linda CohenUnited States
Thanks for a well-paced, informative tour! I enjoyed the day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You are very welcome Linda, I hope to see you again next time with your family and then we can do a lot more! Hope you will enjoy Posada de la Villa. See you soon
Douglas YonesUnited States
OMG - do not go to the Prado without Enrique! He was amazing from start to finish. The kids 10 and 13, and adults loved our tour and have been talking about it ever since. If Enrique was teaching my college courses I would have been an art major! His explanations and story telling is an art in itself. He is amazing - can't imagine going to a museum without him. Book this tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Douglas: Thanks for your kind words, it was so much fun enjoying the Prado with your family, so glad you all liked it! Cheers
Humberto CalderaUnited States
Enrique gave us an amazing tour of Madrid. We walked through areas tourists don't even know about. His knowledge of the history of Madrid and Spain is incredible, and he explains it very easy to follow and understand. We visited churches and sites that we didn't even heard about, and we had been to Madrid 5 times before this trip. He gave us plenty of extra time and great recommendations on what to do and where to go afterwards. I will call Enrique again on my next trip to Madrid.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Humberto: Thanks for your nice comment, I will be happy to be your host again when you coming to Madrid. Next we go for a gastro experience. All rhe best you you, hope your boys did great!
Vicki DenhofferUnited States
We had a wonderful day with Enrique! We visited local gems, eating the most delicious food in Spain, including huge shrimp, octopus, olive oil, calamari, scallops, lamb, ratatouille, chocolate, and wine, wine, and more wine!! Enrique is engaging, knowledgeable, personable, and jovial. We highly recommend booking with him during your visit to Madrid!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Vicki, what a pleasure to have you guys on board in Madrid, thanks for your comments, hope to meet again with you guys in our lovely Madrid
Robert LowellPalos Verdes Peninsula, CA, United States
We thoroughly enjoyed Enrique's tour sharing his deep knowledge of history and culture with great charm and humor. He adapted our tour to address our interests including more focus on art for our costume designer daughter. I messaged Enrique that we were foodies so he offered to include various gourmet stops in lieu of lunch which was perfect for us. We were worried 8 hours would be too long since we had just arrived from California and were jet lagged but the time flew by. Fantastic tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Robert: Very happy to read your feedback! It was a real pleasure, hope to see you guys soon again in our lovely Madrid. Happy new year to you all and best wishes for 2018. Kike
