Dr. Almudena Cros is one of the most knowledgeable and personable guides I've ever had. With her PhD in Art History and her knowledge of Madrid history she made our museum and orientation tours a delightful learning experience. We had a 3 hour walking tour of Madrid, a tour of the Galdiano and Sorolla museums and a Prado tour.

For all of them, she brought along printed and photographic materials to share with us and imparted her knowledge in a way that made it easy for me to understand. In addition, she is a warm, lovely lady who I felt was interested in me as a person and whom I truly like!

With our permission, another couple was added to both the Sorolla tour and the Prado tour. Both couples were as awed and pleased with Almudena as we were. I think anyone who books any of her tours will count themselves very lucky to have chosen Almudena.

Sorolla is my favorite artist and Almudena's tour of his home/museum was a highlight of my trip. I highly recommend this tour to everyone who may or may not be familiar with his work. Sorolla is one of Spain's best artists yet isn't widely known outside his country since there are few of his works exhibited outside Spain - most are in private collections or Spanish museums. I was fortunate to have seen a large exhibition at the St. Louis Art Museum many years ago and search for his work at every museum I visit.

What a joy to have Almudena offer a tour when we were in Madrid. Treat yourself and book a tour with Almudena!
