Hicimos el tour con Damián y valió muchísimo la pena!! Todos deberíamos conocer todo lo ocurrido y Damián sabe explicarlo de forma muy amena y con todo tipo de detalles. Recomendable 100%!

La semana pasada hicimos el tour del Exilio Español en Toulouse y nos sorprendió muy gratamente. El contenido del tour es muy interesante a la par que ameno y Adrián, el guía, estaba muy bien informado sobre el tema y ofrecía explicaciones muy interesantes y completas y además es un encanto y muy atento. Considero que es imprescindible para conocer una etapa oculta de la historia de nuestro país y conocer la historia de muchos personajes olvidados injustamente.
