"Puntualidad, profesionalidad por parte de nuestro guía Rafael, y todo muy bien."

Solamente le pondría un pero y es que iba una pareja que hablaba en inglés y creo que nuestro guía habló más en inglés que en español. Pero en resumen, genial.

"Una excursión muy recomendable para entender dos etapas muy distintas de la historia de España."
24/08/2018
En El Escorial nos hacemos una idea de la grandeza de la España Imperial del Siglo de Oro. En el Valle de los Caídos se refleja la difícil convivencia histórica entre españoles, en un monumento que transmite una sensación de grandeza, pero una grandeza impregnada de amargura. El guía, la chófer y la organización del tour ha sido excelente. Fui con mis hijos y también disfrutaron de las sencillas y clara explicaciones del guía.

"Muy cortita la visita, pero la guía excelente."
01/08/2018
Explicaba muy bien todo y lo que mas me gusto es que aunque eramos pocos en la visita, ella traía un micrófono con el que se facilita muchísimo escuchar. Había olvidado mencionar eso en mis otros comentarios. El que el guía traiga un micrófono, hace la diferencia con la experiencia. Ojala todos los guías lo utilizaran claro, en los lugares permitidos, ya que no todos lo hacen.
