What people are saying about Madrid

A good introduction to how Madrid became Madrid

Celine was a most pleasant guide to spend two hours with, as she imparted her impressive knowledge of how Madrid grew from a Moorish fortress through to the Habsburg reinvention of the city. She tailored the tour to suit our interests, and she offered this in very digestible bits, tied to where we were walking in Old Madrid. She also shared what she loves about her relatively newly adopted home, so she has a perspective that reflects a true interest in the culture of Madrid but also can see it more objectively, perhaps. All in all, a very good way to spend two hours getting to know this fascinating city!

Ask for Beth if you want to enjoy Madrid like a native!

Beth is a great combination of personality, humor and knowledge. Her sometimes irreverent insights gave us knowledge not always available to a visitor. Her artistic perceptions borne of her own life experience enhanced every chapter of our tour. We'll never forget the story she shared of how she and her new husband received the blessing of their marriage at La Torre de Oro (Plaza Mayor). She is a special person.

Tatiana is fantastic. So knowledgeable and so many unusual facts

This is best guide in over 50 years of traveling. English very good. Pashion for history, sense of humor, willingness to help with suggestions for other activities unbelievable. I will probably go back to Spain and I will only deal with Tatiana’s advice. This is my 4th visit to Spain and all experiences were good but her personality made this visit exceptional

My day with Joanna was relaxed, insightful and creative.

Joanna spent so much time creating an individualized experience for me that included the history of Madrid, the best of art museums, shopping and tastings of tapas and wine. I learned a ton and had an adventure that was so rewarding in a city I didn’t know. Do this if you want to spoil yourself and your loved ones. No tour buses needed!

We did this on the first night and it set us up for the whole visit.

This was informative , exciting and very absorbing . The walk incompassed the culture of the city and its architecture which is stunning and vibrant. My advice is to do it on the first night in town , it’s set us up for the days head giving us a brilliant overview. The city is so centred that walking is the best way to see it .
