Susana our tour guide was very good. The Escorial is truly the eighth wonder of the world. Breathtaking. The Valley if the fallen is another wonder for it is inside a mountain. Both worth seeing!!

The royal crypt in El Escorial was amazing and the huge underground basilica at the Valley of the Fallen was an impressive surprise.

First, Carlos is absolutely brilliant. The tour of El Escorial was fascinating, and with Carlos’ help, we got true insight into Spanish history, art, the personal tastes of the kings, as well as their daily lives. This tour was perfect for me.
