Almu gave us 3 tours last weekend in Madrid: the Prado, Reina Sophia and Sorolla's house, and the tours were the most informative and enjoyable experiences of our stay.
The size of the museums are intimidating and she began by asking what specific interests we had and she tailored the tours to suit, and she added other interesting facts that we would never have uncovered. Her depth of knowledge is remarkable.
We enjoyed the tours so much that we engaged her to take us on a tour of Toledo which was the highlight of our long weekend. She took us to see a panoramic view of the city, then on to the Gothic Cathedral followed by the mosque and various other sites. She guided us away from the rip off restaurants to a sensibly priced restaurant for lunch and the whole day was truly memorable.
I can not recommend these tours highly enough.
