With over 20 years of experience, Irina Karasenko and her team have led hundreds of tours throughout Spain and they received a Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor every year since 2011.
We just wanted to let you know that we greatly enjoyed our tour with Irina. She was just what we were looking for and we learned so much from her.
Thank you! Irina is the best guide we have ever met! Our tour was absolutely fantastic, please send Irina our regards.
I wanted to express our gratitude for our tour of Prado with Irina on December 16. Irina was extremely knowledgeable and charming and time with her was a kind of spiritual and intellectual experience. It really made not only our day, but the fascinating background to our trip to your amazing city. Many thanks again!
We just returned last night from our trip to your beautiful country. And my Prado tour remains one of the most memorable experiences of our visit. My best to you and Irina.
I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed the tours by Hernan and Irina. They really added to our appreciation of Madrid. All the best to all of you.
Please let Irina know how memorable and informative my tour of the Prado and Old Madrid was... we shared an interest in art and history... the painting of Spain's loco queen and the casket of the king he loved is still in my mind and I shall return to see it again. Many thanks
Irina, It is so nice to hear from you. I am delighted that you liked my card. The Matisse is gorgeous in person and has always been a favorite. Since we were in Madrid over the Christmas holiday, there was so much we missed in our limited time. I would love to go back to Madrid and will definitely let you know so you can provide another tour or two! In the meantime, I will recommend your tours to friends traveling to Madrid in the future.
Irina was wonderful!!! Thanks
Irina was FANTASTIC!!!! Best guide that I've ever had. She was really great and so kind to my kids. Thanks again.
Thank you very much! Irina’s tour was outstanding today and we enjoyed it very much. We learned so much more than we would have if we had just visited the museum on our own. It was a truly fascinating way to learn about the history of Spain. Please pass on our kind regards and appreciation to her!
I just wanted to give you feedback from our tour on Sunday. Irina was amazing. My husband and I wanted to do the Prado because that is what you do; we felt obligated but he was not excited about doing it at all especially knowing our kids are not museum people. Irina changed that...she had them engaged the entire time. She provided history, reinforced it for my daughter, answered my son's questions, taught them different techniques. We walked out of that museum each have a favorite painting and having enjoyed the experience. Thank you!
I wanted to tell you what a wonderful visit we had to the Prado yesterday. Your tour was so informative and we could never have learnt the information that you passed to us from books. Thank you so much. We will have to come back to Madrid again and will definitely pass on your name to our friends who are visiting.
I just wanted to thank Irina for guiding us for a second day in Madrid her depth of knowledge, expertise friendly approach has quite frankly made our trip in Madrid. A huge thank you from both myself Juliet and Mark Campion
We did a tour of highlights and paintings with Jewish themes with Irina. It was fascinating! My husband and I are far from being art connoisseurs but Irina made the paintings she showed us come to life! Her vast knowledge is most impressive and she shares so much information in such an interesting manner. I never imagined that we could enjoy an art tour so much.
Thank you so much. We had a wonderful time today. We learned so much and got to see some of the non-touristy streets of Madrid. We had a lot of fun.
Just a quick email to again thank you for the fascinating tour of the Prado. As well as giving a terrific overview of the gallery’s magnificent collection I found your idea on taking a more “long distance” view of some paintings very effective, giving me a much deeper insight into the works of painters like Braques and Picasso (which I saw during my later visits to the Thyssen and Reina Sofia galleries.) Again, many thanks.
Just a note to let you know that our tour with Irina was just wonderful. We had a family group of varied ages, and she guided us through the Prado with humor, knowledge and a sense of history. We all agreed that it a tour like this is the only way to visit a large museum. Our thanks to you and Irina for a memorable experience.
Irina was excellent. She guided us through a series of paintings by the greats while linking them to history. It all began to make sense. A private, guided tour is worth every penny.
Irina was a fabulous tour guide and kept our whole family interested. We got off the plane from the U.S. and went straight to meet Irina for the tour. We were tired but she kept us going with interesting facts and sites. We loved our tour of the Prado and then she took us on a stroll through Madrid. She ended with leaving us at a fabulous restaurant. It was a great experience for all of us.
My guided tour of the Prado was the highlight of a wonderful trip to Madrid. Irina was an excellent guide; very knowledgeable but also with a highly engaging manner. It was like being accompanied by a friend who is an expert in art. She not only covered the scholarly details and interpretation, she was able to add anecdotes and additional information that made the paintings and artists come alive. I can honestly say she changed my whole approach to how to look at, and fully appreciate, works of art. The booking process was very smooth with a quick and helpful response to my last minute request for change. Highly recommended.
