Prado Tour - Highlight of Madrid trip
Washington DC, USA
FABULOUS TOURS IN MADRID! OUTSTANDING GUIDES!
Our correspondence by email with Almu was outstanding. She is very quick to reply and is very detailed in her responses.
Our first tour was to the Prado Museum and a walking tour of the Old City. Almu met us at our hotel. She sat their patiently in the lobby waiting for us since our flight was delayed over an hour. Almu is very charming and has a wonderful personality!
Helped us absorb the most of what we were viewing
Then we walked the important historical sights of Madrid. Almu is educated, bright and passionate about art, her city and Spain which left my group with wonderful memories of our short visit.
We look forward to a longer visit with Almu on our next trip, which we certainly must do after this wonderful taste of Madrid!

Educational, engaging tour which opened my eyes to new dimensions
The first one designed for adults, a true educational, engaging walk filled with Spanish and art history. Almu has huge knowledge of the topic and opened my eyes to new dimensions of viewing the paintings of this fantastic museum.
Our second tour was designed for children, so my friend and I took our 10 year old boys. The 3 hours flew by, and the boys, initially reluctant, got truly engaged with the activities and stories organized around the themes of about 30 paintings.
I recommend Across Madrid to individual traveller or to families very warmly.
At the end of the day my only regret is not having more time to do other tours with Almu.
Learned a lot - A top-quality experience
Art history is clearly her passion, and it was really helpful for her to guide us through the Prado to see the progression of art over the centuries. It lent a coherence and context to the works of art we were seeing that we would not have gotten by just walking through the museum on our own and trying to figure it out. We learned a lot from this tour, and it was well worth the price. Another of her passions is introducing children to art, and I expect she would be quite good at it.
She followed up a few days after our tour by email to ask how the rest of our trip was going - a warm, personal touch that we appreciated.
She has an ownership mentality about her work and clearly cares about providing a top-quality experience.
Marietta, Georgia, USA
Can't say enough good things about her and the tours!
She is very personable, knowledgeable, friendly, and patient. She is also quite a humanist, and is involved with various charities.
She took me to local restaurants where not many tourists visit, and in the museum she showed me the main highlights along with a good explanation about the paintings.
You will not regret taking her tours.
Exceeded our expectations - educational and enjoyable
Almu is a highly qualified professor in Art History. At the Prado she helped put the selected works that we visited into their proper context. She helped us understand both the subjects of the artwork as well as the techniques used by the artists.
For the civil war tour, Almu is very qualified to lead this tour because she is an ardent Spanish activist committed to spreading factual information about this period in Spanish history. Her family was involved in the war and she has benefitted from the stories they shared with her. A great experience
Almudena brings the artwork to life
She led us through the streets of Madrid to visit truly historic tapas restaurants some of which have been in existence for more than 100 years. The food and wine were great but the history was even better.
The next day we met her at the Prado for a fantastic tour where she was able to bring the artwork to life.
Almudena has a special interest in recording the memories of those who lived through the Spanish Civil War and is a treasure trove of information on the subject.
I only wish we had more time in Madrid and done more of the tours with Almudena. I hope to be back in Madrid book at least 2 additional tours. Loved it!
