This was an excellent tour. We only had a short time in Madrid, and this tour really made our experience there much better. It gave us a perspective that we couldn't have received in such a short time. Context is always worthwhile!

We use Context everywhere that we can. Here in Madrid, we did the Walk Through the Centuries, Toledo and El Escoriale tours and they were all educational and entertaining. Highly recommended!

Have used Context travel in the past and have been extremely happy. The tour in Madrid was average and not worth the money.
