Great introduction to the city

Cycling tours are always a good idea to get a first impression of a city when you visit that city for the first time. This cycling tour in Madrid also was. Our guide, Joop, did a great job showing us around the city of Madrid. I booked the English tour but because all the participants were speaking Dutch Joop did the tour in Dutch. In more than three hours Joop showed us many of the highlights of the city telling interesting background stories and giving us lots of information. Halfway there was a nice break and we were offered a drink. During the break Joop provided us with lots of useful tips on eating, drinking and sightseeing. Your tip about the other entrance of the Reina Sofia museum worked well for me. Thx for that!

You have to do this!

Our guide for this morning tour was Gaza. He was absolutely fantastic, he was so knowledgable and enthusiastic about Madrid and Spain. We covered history, politics (past and present) food recommendations and entertainment options. A bike tour definitely helps to orientate you for future Madrid activities. Without a doubt, Gaza made this bike tour exceptional for us. Thanks to Gaza and the company he works for.

awesome tour with a great guide- großartige tour mit tollem guide

We had the tour on our second day in madrid. And it was just great. We saw all mayor sights in a short period of time and our guide Chris had a lot of interesting facts about them. we really enjoyed listening to him and the transportation by bike was just very relaxing. Would defenitely do it again and highly recommend it! Wir hatten die Tour an unserem zweiten Tag in Madrid und sie War einfach nur großartig. Wir konnten alle Hauptsehenswürdigkeiten in kürzester Zeit ansehen und unser Guide Chris erzählte uns viele interessante Fakten darüber. Es hat riesigen Spaß gemacht, ihm zuzuhören und die herumfahrerei mit dem Rad war sehr entspannt. Ich würde sie definitiv noch einmal machen und kann sie nur wärmstens weiterempfehlen!
