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 .

Amazing start to my trip!

The guide Paula was lovely and very knowledgable! She had he work cut out and had to repeat herself in both Spanish and English for me. This was no trouble for her and I really enjoyed her tour :)

Everything perfect

Our guide was super nice and presented the history of Madrid in an interesting way. We have visited beautiful places. The flamenco show was well worth seeing. I am very pleased.

Informative guide to central Madrid

Jose our guide was very informative and the small group size enabled questions to be asked as we went along. We were a group of 6 and enjoyed the tour.
