Spanish Civil War Tour Testimonials


Please see our TripAdvisor page for the most recent Across Madrid reviews.


I joined the ‘Across Madrid Spanish Civil War Tour’ covering a subject in which I have been interested for many years. Almudena the guide, was excellent. The tour was detailed and thorough and brought to life the reality of the turmoil in Madrid and what it must have been like, with detail which perhaps is often missing from the many publications which have been made on the conflict.

 If, like myself, you only know the basic outlines of the Spanish Civil War, but wish to understand it better, I highly recommend Almudena's Spanish Civil War tour. It is not a scripted recitation of facts or something researched to find a tour market niche, but clearly a life's work and something very dear to her. You will instead receive a passionate and engaging discourse regarding the conflict, its effect on the city and its people, and the inability of the nation to this day to properly acknowledge and deal with its legacy. Thank you Almudena!

My husband and I did this tour during a weekend stay in Madrid. Both of us are interested in the Spanish Civil War, and how there is very little information about it throughout Spain, so it was quite exciting for us to find this tour. It was a great experience, led by somebody who isn't 'just another tour guide' but is passionate about what she is talking about, and a campaigner for more recognition of the Republican victims of the war and its aftermath. She also talks about her own family experiences, which brings it alive.

If you have an interest in the Civil War - don't miss this very good tour!
