We had an absolutely wonderful wine tour with Professor Drake-Jones! Mr. Drake-Jones is very knowledgeable - his eccentricity and charisma add much fun to the tour! The tour was infused with history and culture along with delicious wine and tapas! Overall, I strongly recommend this tour...

Mr. Stephen Drake Jones was not only knowledgable about the tour, but also very entertaining and jovial. He was as charming as he was intelligent - as well as seamless in navigating our destinations, one adventure to the next. I highly recommend any tour he offers!

I was able to take the Hemingway Tour on my recent Madrid visit and was so grateful to have found the resource that is Mr. Drake-Jones that I immediately booked him for the "Death in the Afternoon" Tour at his next availability. Both tours exceeded expectations and were the highlights of my trip. I highly recommend anything that the Wellington Society of Madrid has to offer.

Took 1/2 day tour with Stephen in Madrid. It was one of our most memorable tours in Spain. We walked; and saw a great number of sites; and heard an enourmous amount about history of Spain and Madrid in particular. We visited a museum and got another view as well. We learned about tapas, and wine and the restaurants around Madrid. This was a delight. Too bad it was at the end of our time in Madrid because we would have loved to do other tours of his.

The best we have ever experienced. The passion and insight kept us entertained and fascinated by not only what we saw but the history and knowledge gained was invaluable. We truly had so much fun, it raised the bar for any future tours.
