Madrid is well worth a visit
Mar 1 - Mar 5, 2023
We had a wonderful time in Madrid. Irene was very efficient in organizing every detail and responded quickly to every question I had. Madrid is a beautiful city and easy to navigate. We also made a day trip to Toledo, which was an interesting historic city with a stunning cathedral but is also very touristy with lots of souvenir shops.
The hotel was in an excellent location right next to a metro stop. It is a beautiful historic building but the room was small and very plain. I expected a little more character. The restaurant downstairs served an excellent breakfast and we also stopped several times for a glass of wine.
Very informative and a good way to start our visit.
My favorite experience. Our guide was friendly, spoke very good English without a heavy accent, and was very knowledgeable. We had a great time trying Spanish wines and tapas
The food was very mediocre. I noticed that only two other Americans came for dinner; everyone else came just for the performance. The dancing was interesting and energetic but a very modern, extemporaneous style and we missed some of the more traditional, flamboyant aspects of the dance.
Beautiful city and worth a visit but be prepared for lots of other tourists and souvenir shops everywhere you turn. Our guide was a wonderful Spanish lady who had lots of information to share but her English was heavily accented and we had to listen very closely to understand her, which got very wearing after 3 hrs.
One of our most fun activities in Spain!
