My guide was Rocio - she was friendly and very informative and gave a great explanation of the history of the park and how it fit into the history of the wider city & monarchy. The weather was cloudy with some very light rain at times and I was the only person on the tour, but Rocio was an absolute professional and gave me a wonderful tour. I would highly recommend the tour and Rocio as your guide as it’s great value for money to have the additional context while wandering this beautiful park. Thanks again Rocio, you are a star!

We did the tour on a Friday and our tour guide was Benny. He was very knowledgeable about the park and helpful with taking photos etc. the pace of the tour was fine. I am not a quicker walker more if a stroller and it was fine for me. A good 1.5 hrs in the park and we’ll worth the money

The organization is not very good since the address of the meeting point they gave us was not correct and we had to call the reservation center to tell them that there was no one waiting for us. It should be said that the solution was quick and the guide, Barbara, waited for us until we arrived, he made a fun and enjoyable tour the whole time.
