Full description
Enjoy the sights of Madrid as you cycle through the city, enjoying the freedom and convenience of traveling by bike. This 3-hour excursion takes in all of the city's major landmarks.

The tour begins at the steps of Madrid's famous Templo de Debod. This is actually one of the few Egyptian temples found outside Egypt today. From here you'll cycle past the Royal Palace, and continue on to the Cathedral of La Almudena, Plaza de la Villa, and the San Miguel Market en route to the city’s main square - Plaza Mayor.

After visiting the Plaza, cycle through some of the city's traffic-free zones to the Plaza de Santa Ana, then down to the Prado Museum. Afterward, climb up a gentle hill to arrive at Retiro Park. Leaving the park by the imposing Alcala Gate, the tour continues toward Calle Serrano and Plaza de Colon. Wind your way through the lively streets, past the boutiques and cafés of the Chueca district, to Calle Fuencarral and then Plaza de España.

Brilliant Way to See The City

We did this Tour on our first morning in Madrid, after booking ahead using the GYG App. All the communications were great; including Alex being at the cycle shop ready to roll at the agreed time. The bikes and helmets were good and Alex was very helpful to make a few adjustments. The route we took was excellent - through all the main attractions and districts - avoiding main roads whenever possible. What made this tour for us was Alex. His English was immaculate and his knowledge of Madrid's history (and the wider world) extensive. He also paced the tour very well with plenty of stops and pics along the way. We were lucky to fluke having him to ourselves for this particular Tour. In summary, a memorable introduction to the City, which helped us get our bearings and a feel for Madrid. Alex was just great and chilled; he maintained our high expectation of the standard of tours offered by GYG.

A brilliant start to my stay

Our guide was fantastic (Alex) thoughtful, knowledgeable and honest when he didn’t know a fact or date. Excellent service, friendly and reassuring. I was worried about a hill - Alex lent me his electric bike - I’m converted. A great start to my holiday, I got my bearings and saw lots in a short space of time. Easy booking and payment with clear instructions and directions.

Great way to see parts of Madrid rarely visited by tourists

Our guide was knowledgeable and helpful, especially as I fell off my bIke in the first 5 minutes. He patched me up and got me going again. His knowledge of this part of the city and general information regarding the king, politics and the local celebrations Madrid was in the midst of was informative and interesting.
