“Our visit to Los Arapiles was the highlight of our visit to Salamanca. Raul was an excellent guide to the events of July 22nd 1812 as he combined detailed knowledge of the battle with an infectious enthusiasm. As we walked the Battlefield we could almost see and hear the armies as they marched into position. The sun was setting as we stood at the Memorial stone and we felt we had honoured the memory of all who had fought. Thank you, Raul, for a memorable tour.”
“We thoroughly enjoyed our recent Salamanca battlefield tour with you. Your enthusiasm was infectious. And your detailed knowledge was most impressive. The scale and strategy of the battle came across very well. As did your portrayal of the personnel involved. Altogether engrossing and most informative.”
