Happy Clients

We were a group of nine people and Werner gave us a historical, architectural and cultural tour and introduction of Madrid. He undoubtedly has a great passion for and knowledge of the city. Our four hour bike ride tour seemed far too short. Thank you for a wonderfully informative and inspirational experience. Highly recommended!
Linda E - Oslo
Werner was a pleasure to work with from our initial enquiry through to our return, he suggested itineraries, recommended an excellent restaurant for lunch and made all the bookings for this along with coaches for our tour and also our airport transfers. He suggested using an audio system so we could all hear him clearly which worked very well for us. Werner’s knowledge of Madrid is excellent and he spoke about this well with passion and humor making him very interesting to listen to.

"We had a wonderful time in Madrid with a guide that exceeded all expectations."
Sofie H. - Alesund
"Werner really knows how to entertain a group of in our case 50 people in total, for three full days! We made a program together with Werner to make sure it would also be interesting for developers, contractors, asset managers, investors, council officials. And to make sure we had a well deserved drink at a great rooftop bar at the end of a day full of Madrilenian impressions. He really made sure that everything ran smoothly, which it did, a 100%. Thank you, Werner, for your hospitality and this full insight into Madrid."

"I am a Historic Preservation Architect from the USA but I also enjoy seeing what new modern architecture explorations may be occurring in a city I am visiting. Werner sent me a detailed itinerary ahead of our tour that balanced beautifully my different interests. On the day of the tour, he delivered an amazing day! He also gave me great insight into the development of Madrid the history, through the influence of its’ geographical location, social, political and cultural forces."
Ione S. - San Diego
"Our trip was fantastic and for a big part, that was due to the contribution of Werner Durrer.  He has a real 'teaching' talent  and gave us insight into the development of Madrid as a world city, through its’ history, the influence of its’ geographical location, social, political and cultural decisions, and with enough detail to understand it all and see the buildings in their context. It was very interesting for us architects/project managers."
