The tour with Pepe was excellent! We highly recommend. Pepe was extremely knowledgeable and put everything in context for us starting with some basic history of Spain. He peppered history throughout the tour in a highly accessible way. His tour was as advertised and we got an excellent overview of Madrid and the country.

Pepe provided a tour for us, as Jews, of Jewish Toledo, that may just be one of the most thoughtful and provocative "travel experiences" of our decades of travel. His personal curiosity and amassed knowledge of this topic was imparted well beyond visiting "cites listed". To transmit a "history", much of which continues to be marked by "hiding", into something that we could physically see, touch and integrate in a few hours of touring was remarkable. He is a gem. We have already referred others.

Pepe was a wonderful guide for us in Madrid. His English was excellent. His knowledge of the history and culture was very good. He was able to keep a 13 year old girl interested with relevant information. I would recommend him to my friends.

Very disappointed in our tour guide. He had us taking taxi's to and from our hotel ( which he knew we had booked many months in advance) and we had to pay the taxi fees to where he wanted to start the tour. It was clearly stated he would pick us up from Hotel with no mention of taxi fares. He was also rather abrupt with answers to some questions we asked. In addition some information and answers he gave us we found out later were totally inaccurate.

I had an amazing tour with Pepe and learned so much, because Pepe makes history exciting and cool. He provided excellent information in response to my many questions, and when we took a break to eat lunch, Pepe selected a delicious place to eat off the beaten path. He informed me in advance that he would not haggle with shop owners for me, but he helped to smooth the transactions, ensuring I understood the terms of the deal. I highly recommend Pepe and his fascinating tour to Toledo from Madrid.

We learned so much and gained a real appreciation of everything we saw. The tour was well paced and covered a lot of territory, including stops at a pastry cafe and cheese shop. Pepe gave us great recommendations for restaurants and bars which were helpful for the rest of our trip. He is a walking historian who is passionate about his city.

Going through the Jewish quarter of Toledo with Pepe is like taking the best history class you ever experienced. A thousand years of history flies by as you walk the narrow streets (built two horses wide). Toledo has so much to offer and Pepe makes sure you get to experience it all in a manageable way. Whether Christian or Jewish hearing the history from a Jewish perspective provides such greater understanding to world events past and present.

Segovia is not to be missed, there is so much to see and experience. Pepe makes the trip an incredible experience. His attention to detail, whether it is standing in the right place to take a picture, ordering the right wine with your meal, pointing out the difference between a rich/poor house is endless, making the tour delightful. Pepe is like the best professor you ever had in school.

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.

This was our second tour with Pepe A. (We also took his Madrid like a Local tour to get an orientation to Madrid on our first ever visit to Spain). Pepe picked us up promptly in a luxury Audi for our full-day excursion to this amazing city. He showed us around with expert insights and took some amazing photos for us. He also booked an historic lunch in Segovia where we got to taste the local delicacy (recipe of the Kings). It was a great day and his skill and excellent English was superb.*****

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 very knowledgeable about Segovia and the history of Spain in general. Giving us a good overview during the car ride, and lots of details during the tour. He was great with the kids (11,13) He does keep you moving, so be prepared to walk a lot, there is a lot to see. Segovia is also higher in the mountains the Madrid, so it is colder, dress appropriately. He took us to a great place for lunch where the staff knew him so we got a little special treat which was nice. Would highly recommend.

Our guide Pepe was a very knowledgeable and pleasant host who curated a great night for us. The flamenco show was amazing and the tapas was delicious...we felt like we got an authentic taste of Madrid. The one downside was the price. Considering that drinks at the flamenco show, and all other food/drinks during the night were not included, it turned out to be a very expensive night. I would recommend adjusting the price of the tour or highlighting what's included (or rather, not included) better.

Pepe was well informed and passionate about his Jewish heritage. It was fascinating learning so much from him. He had a great personality and we enjoyed our sometimes opposing opinions. I would highly recommend Pepe.

Thoroughly enjoyed our bike tour of Madrid with Pepe. He is very knowledgable and full of enthusiasm for his subject. His English is excellent. The trip was fun and lively. I would highly recommend it to anyone wishing to get an overview of the city. We are 3 women in our 50's and found the cycling easy/medium. The city is busy however so will be fine for someone used to cycling in traffic but not if you are nervous on a bike. Pepe is excellent at making sure you stay safe however so you are in good hands

There is so much to see in the Prado. The understanding of ten of the masterpieces was great. We just wished we had even more time to appreciate the range of pieces in here.

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!!!

We went on our second tour with Pepe driving to Toledo from Madrid. I highly recommend Pepe, especially if you are Jewish. As a Jewish tour guide, Pepe brings a personal perspective to the rich Jewish culture of Toledo. He showed us off the beaten path artifacts and shared interesting facts of the history. The city is beautiful and Pepe gave us wonderful views to see the different sights. We shared a delicious lunch with him and thoroughly enjoyed the day.

Pepe was fantastic! He was a dynamic guide with deep knowledge of both history and modern Madrid. Everyone on the group came away loving Pepe and feeling that the tour was very worthwhile. Even with pouring rain which is very uncharacteristic for Madrid summers, thanks to Pepe's great delivery and inside knowledge we all could have gone for even more time after the first four hours. Pepe gave us a number of recommendations for restaurants and activities and so far they have all been five star winners!

Pepe is an energetic and well informed tour guide. He know his history of Madrid and we appreciated hearing about it from a Jewish point of view. Despite pouring rain we were able to see most of the the major sights in Madrid. Pepe gave us good suggestions for meals and other things to do if we had the time.

Pepe was a wonderful tour guide. He gave us very interesting knowledge about the culture of Spain especially Madrid. He took us to several of his favorite places for tapas and to his favorite flamenco show. The show was spectacular and the tapas were so delicious especially the jamoneria he took us to. I would highly recommend taking this flamenco and tapas tour with Pepe. It definitely immersed you into the Spanish culture.

Pepe is an extraordinary guide. He is personable, humble, and incredibly knowledgeable. He packed thousands of years of Spanish history into four hours that went by in a flash thanks to his charm and sense of humor. Too bad there is not an option to give more than five stars.
