Unique, genuine and authentic!
From hotel pick-up to drop-off, Jimena and team were just fantastic! She was thoughtful, accommodating and speaks great English! We really enjoyed the entire experience--the wine tour and tasting was great. We also had fun with a quaint and private stroll through Navalcarnero, including a wonderfully delicious and authentic lunch! Not a typical "tour" by any means--so very unique and genuine--we loved ... more it! Well worth the cost.
