Had a 4 hour private walking tour of the royal palace and old town with Susana V. She was very knowledgeable and adaptable. She did an excellent job with the tour. She made sure to direct it towards the people on the tour and their previous experiences in Madrid so there was no duplication. I would highly recommend her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Tom!! That is so nice of you. I'm happy to hear from you. We did have a good time together. Say hi! Susana

Tour: Private tour of The Royal Palace and the Old Madrid, Madrid, Madrid, Spain
Date: Nov 26/19

Susana led our family of 4 on a tour of the Royal Palace. She was informative and engaging and we enjoyed the tour. She then took us on a tour of of the surrounding areas in Madrid and pointed out the many interesting sights and architectural styles of Madrid. She was flexible and took us where we wanted to go - including a stop for the delicious cookies baked by the nuns of the Corpus Christie Convent.

Walking around Old Madrid with Susana is exactly the reason why you want a local guide. She shared with us the history of old Madrid, took us to secret spots like inside a restaurant where we saw an old map of ancient Madrid, the oldest wood burning oven, etc. Highly recommend this tour if you want to see the special places in Old Madrid.

Susana is very knowlegable with respect to the Royal Place & Prado Museum. Our group enjoyed the tour with her and everyone said they learned a lot from Susana. Personally I cannot imagine seeing the Palace & Prado Museum without a knowledgable guide like Susana.

Wir hatten Susana für 2 halbe Tage Stadtbesichtigung für unsere Kleingruppe mit 14 Personen gebucht. Susana war grossartig, alle Teilnehmen total von ihr, ihrer Tour und ihrem Wissen begeistert. Susana erklärte uns nicht nur die Sehenswürdigkeiten, sondern auch den Alltag, die Herausforderungen und Annehmlichkeiten in Spanien - alles in perfektem Deutsch. Wenn wir wieder eine Reise nach Madrid planen, werden wir als erstes Susana buchen. Wir können Susana nur empfehlen, Sie werden ebenso begeistert sein.

Susana V. took us on a local train, hired two taxis and proceeded to miss all the crowds, while we learned about the history of this wonderful town! Definitely a city not to be missed and spent with Susana. The cathedral was astonishing because Susana organized the tour of the highlights, making it come to life. She made sure we experienced the Jewish history of the city, its synagogues, museum and stories. She's wonderful, don't miss hiring her! Thank you Susana!

Susana V. is wonderful! She gave us an Art appreciation lesson at the Prado which was the most interesting tour we ever had at an art museum! Rather than rushing through the entire museum in an otherwise packed day, she concentrated on specific masterpieces in depth and it was fascinating! From that "lesson" we were able to understand masterpieces in churches, basilicas and palaces. She took us to a local tapas restaurant and introduced us to delicious Spanish delicacies and how to eat them! What a gem!

Susana V. was wonderful. She picked us up at the airport, settled us in our hotel and proceeded to spend 3 lovely days with us! She is extremely knowledgeable about Spanish history, very friendly, and easy to understand. Even though we had just gotten off the plane, we were totally engaged in the stories of El Escorial and the Valley of the Fallen. We would recommend her without reservation for this tour.

Susana was our guide in Avila and Segovia and was extremely knowledgeable about the culture and history of both. The places she chose to take us were perfect, enabling our understanding and appreciation of the two towns. In Avila we visited Santo Tomás, a Dominican Monastery which was extraordinary both historically and architecturally. Part of our tour was a stop for lunch at a small restaurant with a wonderful view and delicious local dishes in Segovia. Suzana is an exceptional guide who met our needs.

Susana was a wonderful guide and the tour was well worth the price of booking. It was great to see the Palace before it opened, don't think you could appreciate the rooms as much if they were packed with the blocks long line of people we saw when we left. It was also great to walk in the Prado without waiting, but having Susana teach us a new way of looking at the art was even more special. We got so much more out of it than we would by seeing it on our own.

My husband, friends and I took the Royal Palace and Prada Museum tour with Susanna V. We went first to the Palace where we were allowed in a full hour before the general public. What a treat! It was almost like we were private guests at the Palace. To be sure, this is a royal historic tour, and Susanna really knows her history. We were thoroughly informed about the Royal family. Also, the Prada tour was royal history and art by Goya, El Greco and Velasquez. Fabulous job by Susanna! Thank you.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Chris!! Thank you very much for your nice review!! I’m so happy to hear you all enjoyed it! So did I!! I hope you have a great tIme during the rest of your stay! Say hi! Susana

A family of four (2 adults and two kids 10 and 13), we hired Susana to help us tour see the Palace, the Prado and get a feel of Madrid. Susana turned out to be an amazing guide, the best we have had over years of traveling in Europe. Susana aims to educate not just fill you with a long list of facts . She is very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, great company and above all engaging. Her introduction to the El Greco paintings and his representation of light captivated us and left us wanting more. Thanks Susana

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dimitra. It was a great treat for me to take care of you and your lovely family. It was easy to get engaged with your wonderful kids. They helped me do a good job too!! I hope you are having a great holiday!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Susana. Her in-depth knowledge of history and art helped in our understanding on this great tour. The private tour of the palace was exceptional. The tour was in the morning when only private tours were allowed, so the area was not crowded and she was able to spend time explaining everything to us. I would highly recommend Susana and this tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Kim for your nice report. I also enjoyed the tour!!

Susana was an excellent tour guide. She took very good care of our group of 7 that included two children. She was quite knowledgeable and very informative on the tour. She was very energetic and even kept the children interested in the tour including my grandchildren (aged 8 and 3). I would totally recommend her for any tour that she is able to do. We used her for all three days and tours that we did in Madrid. We are very glad that we chose her for our tours. She is excellent!!

My wife and I engaged Susana for three tours while we were in Madrid; a visit to the Prado and walking tour of Madrid and visits by train to Toledo and Segovia. She is the best guide we have ever used in the US or Europe. She is engaging, very knowledgeable about the history of the places and an incisive analyst of the vast quantity of art and architecture we saw. She's a charming lunch companion and bought train and admission tickets in advance. Her English is perfect (and other languages as well).

Susana was excellent. I was worried that the extreme hot weather would make our trip too uncomfortable, but Susana was able to plan out our itinerary perfectly. We were able to explore all of the major places of interest, go to spots with excellent views for photos, do the zip-line across the river, do a little shopping and eat at a restaurant that was able to appeal to myself as well as my picky-eater child; all while remaining relatively comfortable in the heat throughout the whole day. She was great!

Touring with Susana who knows the ins and outs of the Royal Place and the Prado was wonderful. Her depth of knowledge was excellent and she was engaging with our three children. It isn't easy to manage tour logistics and keep on task but she did so with a high level of professionalism and understanding of our specific group.

Susana was very knowledgeable and accommodating. We scheduled our tour for, essentially, whenever we were able to get to town from the airport and put our bags in storage. She met us there, and immediately took us to a cafe for some much needed coffee. We started our 4 hour walking tour from there. She showed us all the sites of Madrid. She also got us a reservation for a Flameco show. They gave us a table next to the stage and treated us like VIP's. We also saw her at the Prado the next day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Paul, I'm happy to read that all the efforts you put to organize a great trip for your family has been a success, and I have been part of it!! That makes me feel that I'm on the right track. Thanks a lot for sharing your insight with me. And say hi to your lovely family. Susana

We had a lovely day in Toledo with Susana. She provided a great overview of the city's history and did a fabulous job describing it's rich cultural history to my teenage boys. We truly learned a lot during our time with her. We had a fantastic day and would highly recommend her as a guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Vania... thank you very much for your review. I REALLY appreciate it. I am so happy to hear that you two and the boys enjoyed it... Say hi to all of them. I really was a special day. See you! Susana
