    You and your teens might enjoy a walk with Historian, Stephen Drake-Jones. I’ve taken a number of walks and day trips to Segovia with him with teens. The kids just loved him. Be forewarned: He is quite a character; but he is also a brilliant man, knowledgeable about Spain and Madrid, and a great storyteller. (SF)

    Calling Stephen Drake-Jones’ Madrid walking tours historic is certainly accurate, but doesn’t begin to describe the experience. Stephen, Chairman of the Wellington Society of Madrid, and an acknowledged expert on the Peninsular Campaigns of Wellington, is a familiar figure in the haunts of old Madrid. And his scholarship sits easily with the wit of the raconteur; his tours are always entertaining. He brings history to life for all ages. (The Wellington Society of Madrid)
