"My husband and I were looking for a tour to El Escorial and are so glad we came across this one. The trip to El Escorial was combined with a delicious tapas lunch and an interesting tour of a local winery that makes it different from the other tours we found. The tour guide was very friendly and we enjoyed a perfect day out of Madrid."
