Tour: Visiting Toledo, the city of three cultures, Toledo, Castilla-La Manacha, Spain
Date: Aug 15/18

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.

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.

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

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!

Tour: Prado Museum for Margaux Charpenter, Madrid, Madrid, Spain
Date: Jul 7/18

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Enrique is a 1st class guide and a real expert on the history and art of Madrid. We did an 8-hour walking tour of Madrid and covered approximately 10 miles with him, seeing vastly different parts of the city. Fortunately, we saw both the top tourist attractions AND the places locals go - lunch was at an amazing small cafe off the beaten path, but with wonderful food and great proprietors. If I'm ever in Madrid again, I'll definitely be booking another tour with Enrique.

OMG! What a great person! The tour was fabulous because Enrique, one is very knowledgeable about the city, the artist, history etc., and two he is very enthusiast, and passionate about Madrid. He was considerate of my needs because I have a bad back, so he allowed me to set the speed and let me rest as I needed. I think he may have missed his calling, because he could have been a great actor! I highly recommend Enrique for this tour and any other!! Hope to return and see him again!

We walked around (literally) the perimeter of the tourist map of the central area of Madrid. Enrique is very knowledgeable about both the history of Madrid and the current vibe of the city. He told great stories in explaining public sculptures and buildings. We enjoyed a typical lunch in a local restaurant. We visited a market not often seen by tourists. Enrique gave many good recommendations for local places where we could find good seafood, good cheese, good jamon, and good vermut. A great day.

Enrique is knowledgeable, energetic, passionate and entertaining. This tour was a lot more "history" that we anticipated. We should have read the description more thoroughly since that is how it is described. Our bad! We got everything that was promised including the full 8 hours and the "included" lunch, that was excellent. He worked hard to please, including finding my wife bottled water when she needed it, and buying us cookies from the Monasterio del Corpus Chisti to take back to the states.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Elizabeth, thank you for your comment, Iam glad you enjoyed and Iam sad you tought it was to much information. Also sorry for my passion and for getting "to close", that could have been easily solved if you guys would have told me, so then I could have deliver less historical info and not overtake your personal space,. Anyhow, glad you enjoy lunch and I hope cookies made it to USA so you can bring over your friends for tea! Best Regards

Outstanding tour ... blending history, food, wine and beer, and local lore. The pace was perfect as we only had one day in Madrid and though we spent 8 hours together, we never felt rushed or tired.

Enrique is a real professional with, heart, passion and devotion to what he does. He's basically the teacher you always wanted, who can talk about Madrid in the most amazing way. I wish all tour guides were like him!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bashar: Very happy with your comment thanks a lot! But also thank you for trusting you classmates and teachers to me! Was a real pleasure!

Enrique is such an amazing tour guide , he showed me almost everything in Madrid and its different facades , we had the most amazing walk through history and through beautiful narrow streets were the locals live , I tried the different tapas , also I liked that he was asking me during the tour if I wanted to see anything more so he could alter the tour for me , I saw Madrid how the tourists and locals see it . Enrique is very knowledgeable , attentive and friendly I highly recommend him.

Enrique could not have been more pleasant, knowledgeable, and accommodating. After we booked our trip to Madrid, we decided to book a tour at the beginning of our stay, to give us a base to begin to understand the area, history, and culture of the city. Enrique was able to do that for us, and then some. Even though we spent a few hours with Enrique on the tour, it seemed like minutes. The passion and energy that he showed about Madrid was contagious. Highly recommend!!!!!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bryan: Thanks for your kind words, always feeling glad and happy when visitors have a great experience. Thanks and welcome back anytime

Enrique was a great guide for our tour of Madrid. He was very knowledgable and passionate about his city, his country and his history! He took us to the main sites of Madrid but also to some local, more unknown to tourist spots that we appreciated finding out about. He was adaptable to our interests. I would definitively recommend Enrique as a guide and his Surfing Madrid Tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rosemary; Thank you so much for you kind words and great feedback, so glad i could be the one showing you some of those great things that make my beloved Madrid so special. Thanks again

Enrique took us on an entertaining and informative walking tour, giving us just the right amount of historical and local information. When he discovered my sweet tooth he added stops at a bakery to point out a delicious local pastry and walked us through a cafe specializing in that unpronounceable but delicious pastry you dip into chocolate. We enjoyed the walk and felt it was well worth it.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Catherine, thank you for your comment, very glad you enjoyed, was a real pleasure having you both in our lovely city. Best Regards

Enrique's knowledge of Madrid in particular is extremely erudite and he explains all with a contagious enthusiasm. The hours I spent with him gave me the orientation I needed to gain a basic understanding of the recent cultural and political changes in Spain as well as the highlights of the city. I highly recommend his services.

My daughter and I both think Enrique was AMAZING!! His knowledge of the history of Spain and Madrid and passion for art is an explosive combination for a day in Madrid. The only drawback to having Enrique for the day is that he leaves you :). You might think of booking Enrique for more than one day as there is too much to see and he is such a great guide to experience the city with! It was our only regret of our trip! We will hopefully see him when we return to this incredible city!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure! Lauren and Mary nice meeting you i will wait for you in Madrid! Take care and thanks for your nice comment

Enrigue was a wonderful, informative guide. We spent 8 hours touring madrid with him and enjoyed every minute. I highly recommend Enrique. He also took us to a fabulous lunch - my two teenagers (who are foodies) are still talking about the lunch..saying it was the best meal we had during our 2 weeks in Spain!

While in Madrid n July 2013 my 17 yo niece and nephew and I had the pleasure of having Enrique as our guide. We had a fabulous day seeing a beautiful city. Enrique was great at keeping all of us interested and went out of his way all day long to show us the real Madrid. We had a great lunch in a place we never would have found! He also introduced us to many other little spots and eteries. Would definitely seek out Enrique when back in Madrid. Thanks to him for such great memories!
