Tour Reviews
Ruth (US) – Day Trip to Chinchon: Our guide, Mate, was brilliant, so knowledgeable and very helpful. Chinchon is gorgeous, just free time to explore the quaint little town and buy some scrumcious ham, cheese, olives and of course the adults in the group tested the famous 'anis' licquor. The restaurant in Chinchon was also incredible. A quick tour of the wine cellars and a fantastic meal. The waiters were really kind and friendly with our students which was greatly appreciated.
