Essa met us right off the Plaza de Mayor and lead us through an eye opening and entertaining trip back to the 300 years of the Spanish Inquisition. She was fantastic, friendly and fun. I would highly recommend this tour. We got to see great places and hear the history by a wonderful storyteller. Thanks Essa.

David really stayed in character for the entire tour. He tried to engage all participants and really wove a nice story. This really was street theatre. If you love the arts, it is a must. The history given was told with much flair. I almost wanted sound effects. There was some periods where it lagged a bit but that was always very brief.

Our guide David was fantastic. A true theatrical story teller that brings history to life. This is not your typical "ghost tour". This is a window into a dark and mysterious period of Madrid's history. David's knowledge and excitement of the city made this tour a truly memorable experience.

We were very disappointed. The event didn’t happen for us. We waited at the meeting point but no one arrive ld. We got there early, the tour was due to start at 8:15pm. By 8:35pm tue guide still hadn’t arrived at the meeting point. We were very disappointed given the fact that we had given an evening of our holiday to attend this event.

The tour guide Isa was great. The text was uneven and didn’t tell a complete story of the city. Sometimes it focused on the Inquisition and sometimes a totally unrelated story. Hard to connect to, ultimately.

Hello Samuel, Thank you for taking the time to review the tour. We are sorry to hear that did not meet your expectations. In response to, I'd say that the tour intends to combine the history of the inquisition and various legends of Madrid. Having stories related in a walking tour that's not always possible.

It was an amazing experience! David - our guide was so amusing, he was very knowledgeable, yet acting out the history of Spain and telling stories as if he was on stage.. This is the best guided tour we have been so far and cant wait to book another one with the same company. Hopefully David will be out guide again!

Great! Great great great! The tour highlighted locations around Madrid, punctuating each stop with haunting or with Inquisition stories. The guide was not just someone speaking, but she was an actor, who dramatically told the stories with voices, and gestures. This was an afterthought, literally the last thing we signed up for. It was one of the best things we did. If this is something you would like, then it will be something you will love!

What a great tour! Our guide Elizabeth was such a great storyteller. She transported us to the past with her excellent descriptions. It was so much fun. I am a big history buff and this tour definitely delivered! The ghost stories almost seemed as if they came to life right in front of you. I could picture what Elizabeth was describing as if it were happening at that moment.

My husband and I had the honor of being David’s first tour. He was fantastic, very knowledgeable about the local history and had great recommendations for restaurants and entertainment nearby. We very much enjoyed the tour and would highly recommend if you are visiting Madrid. Unfortunately we did not have cash to tip him, but if he has PayPal or Venmo we would gladly send him a few Euros as a thank you.
