An interesting excursion, our guide Javi was very nice and explained very well, it shows that he handles the matter ... The impressive views although we did not have much luck at first with the fog ... I would repeat again, a pity that it is not seen and can enter the castle, I wanted to enter but the town is confined.

A good way to get closer to what this national park is, discover spectacular corners, and visit many iconic places, with a good and friendly guide. Highly recommended as an alternative day plan to the city if you visit Madrid.

Excellent the guide Javier, very complete excursion, giving us time to enjoy and see the Sierra, delicious hiking through Peñalara ... the place of lunch in Rascafria ... adorable villages ... all excellent !!!

Javier is a great guide. Very professional, funny and nice. He explained many things with passion and answered all questions with patience. I had fun and recommend this tour very much!
