My family and I took both the evening Tapas Tour and City Walking Tour with Joanna this past July. Both tours were fantastic, but the Tapas Tour was the highlight of our trip. Joanna took us to some great bars and restaurants that we would not have tried on our own. We have a 10 year old daughter, and it... More

I was on a wonderful tapas tour led by Johanna on a Saturday night in Madrid. There were 5 other people for a tour scheduled to go from 8pm to 11pm. Johanna took to us an interesting and educational selection of bars. We were having such a good time that Joanna continued the tour to 1 am the next morning... More

Dear Lawrencestone, thank you for taking the time to write this review. It was such a pleasure to take you for tapas that night . Admittedly, it is not the norm to continue so late as the tour is indeed scheduled to finish at 11pm. As I remember, we had some late starters join us, and when the conversation is... More

Five friends and I were looking for a private tour in Madrid. The friend of our Barcelona guide referred me to Joanna Wivell. My travel companion located Joanna on Trip Advisor. It was serendipity. We booked Joanna for a walking tour of Madrid that morning, then met her again for a Tapas tour in the evening. For our walking tour,... More

We took the Botin Experience with Joanna in March and what an experience it was! From the time that we met her out front of the restaurant it was obvious that she was full of facts about both the restaurant and town that you could not find in a tourist book. She was very excited about sharing her information with... More

We took the Tapas tour and had a great time. Joanna really knows Madrid, and we especially enjoyed the Vermouth bar (Albertos). Joined with 6 other people (some of whom had been on a city tour with Joanna that morning) and we all had a blast. We also sked Joanna for a Flamenco performance recommendation and she happily circled a... More

My family really enjoyed our Botín tour with Joanna last month. Joanna was about 30 minutes late due to a scheduling error but was extremely apologetic and more than made up for it. While we were waiting the staff at the restaurant gave us complimentary drinks and appetizers. Joanna is a very knowledgeable and interesting guide. We toured the entire... More

Dear Yeny, thank you so much for your review and for your understanding regarding our scheduling error. I am so glad you enjoyed the Botin Experience and felt that we had been able to make up for the delay. It was such a pleasure to meet you all. I hope we have the chance to meet again on your next...

We were so fortunate to find Joanna for our tour of Madrid. I took my 85 year old parents on a trip through Spain and Joanna helped us in Madrid. Before Joanna, we were lukewarm on the city....after a couple of hours with her, we were hooked!!!! She helped my mom shop, gave us good culture, of course stopped in... More

Our family of 3 had an excellent time doing the Botin Tour, with the very knowleagable guide, Joanna. Thanks Joanna, for providing so much info and showing us around this historic Resto, from the wine cellar to the Hemingway seat and to the kitchen where the very yummy suckling pigs are being cooked in the century old oven. Great wine,... More
