Jevon was a great guide. Highly knowledgable and enthusiastic about the subject. The Inquisition is long gone (thank God) so there are not a lot of direct visual referents to see. Jevon still showed us the main areas where Inquisitor activities took place. There was also lots of “extra” history thrown in to provide context for Inquisitions whys and wherefores. It definitely was a worthwhile tour. I highly recommend it.

this is a five star rating for customer service. unfortunately the tour was cancelled because of lack of participants, but a representative from the company came and apologized and worked hard to connect with anyone who was expecting the tour to be able to refund or rebook. the company is organized and accountable, and I look forward to being able to take the tour soon!

Sebastian was a knowledgeable and entertaining guide who brought history to life. This was one of the highlights of my trip to Madrid.

Very informative. Nice guide. Leisurely stroll through old part of city.

Fascinating tour with a dedicated guide: Sebastian.
