We spent a delightful two days with Silvia first on a walking tour in downtown Madrid and the next day on a tour to Salamanca and a brief stop in Avila Silvia is knowledgeable and enthusiastic and made our trip very enjoyable. We look forward to meeting up with Silvia again the next time we visit Spain

With Sylvia as guide we spent half-day on a walking tour of Madrid Old Town and a full day visiting Salamanca using a private-hire vehicle. Both tours were excellent, well organised by Sylvia and we learned so much from this friendly and delightful lady. Sylvia has very detailed knowledge of the history of Spain, particularly in respect of the many places we saw. We were also able to stop briefly at Avila en-route from Madrid to Salamanca, so flexibility in the tour was an added bonus. Her knowledge of the Royal Palace in Madrid brought the place to life, and the photographic opportunities she suggested at Salamanca Cathedral were superb. Sylvia is thoroughly recommended as a guide and we would definitely hope to use her again.

Silvia did an amazing job at showing us the ins and outs of Madrid. Always from a cheerful and fun approach, she showed a very well rounded and thorough knowledge of the city, its history and its culture. She made our tour through the city and the Royal Palace one to remember. We learned so much and just wanted the tour to keep going. 10/10! MUCHAS GRACIAS SILVIA!

Sylvia looks us on a great walk around the city, it was very relaxed, stopping for tapas at good, traditional locations. She talked us through the history of Madrid, the royal families, Spanish traditions, and some of the history behind specific dishes we were eating - why Madrid is so great for seafood, tasting different jamons - and drinks (often made in-house at the places we stopped). Overall it was a great afternoon and definitely recommended, Sylvia is a fantastic guide, interesting, intelligent, friendly with a great sense of humour, and clear love of travel.
