I was in Spain for an English Immersion program where I had two days to tour in Madrid. I had read many reviews on MadSnail Travel Tours and knew it would be the right fit for me. Enrique was my guide for two days he was an amazing tour guide! The first day was filled with the detailed history of Madrid. We walked viewing many varieties of architecture through many time periods. Spain's monarchical dynasties shifted as did its architecture so the styles of Romanesque, Moorish, Italianate Baroque, neo-Gothic to Modern were blended through out the city! Beautiful structural movement and such a contrast as they stand so very close to one another. The second day was touring the Prado Museum where Enrique was as knowledgeable with the art as he was with Madrid’s history. I would recommend this tour for anyone who wants a true tour of the city and a guide who is flexible as to what your interests may be! Thank you for a wonderful and interesting tour Enrique!!

Thank Kathe D

What a great introduction to Madrid!!
Enrique was a wonderful guide. We learned about the history of Spain while visiting the Royal Palace. His passion for the city and what it has to offer is infectious. He has incredible knowledge of what’s authentic and what’s touristy. We went to the Mercado La Cebada and had a most delicious omelette. He knows everyone at the market. We stopped at a Bar and tasted some delicious wine and tasty Tapas.
This is definitely the way to see the city. Highly recommend.
We are definitely returning and doing more of his tours.
