Our guide, she was excellent! Friendly, Professional and very knowledgeable about the history and each site. She managed her time and the group well. Wonderful experience as she made the stories come alive! I would definitely recommend this tour, the Cathedral and the Royal Palace is a great combination for a tour.

We booked the tour as a family with 4 adult children. Our guide Enrique welcomed us warmly at the agreed meeting point and gave a very entertaining (in English) tour of the royal palace. Unfortunately, the entire group was denied entry to the cathedral on Easter Saturday, which even the organizer Todo-Tours was not aware of until then. Nevertheless, Enrique told us a lot about the history of the cathedral. In the best weather, we were also able to take plenty of photos. The palace and its rich interior is in remarkable condition and can easily compete with the famous royal palaces of Europe. We felt that some of the furnishings were much more extensive than in Versailles. After a good 1.5 hour tour you need a break. Admission entitles you to explore the palace on your own and to visit additional rooms. For us, the entertaining tour was very informative and absolutely recommendable.
