If you are in Madrid for the first time and want to learn something about the city, you should definitely book this tour. Our guide David was great. He accompanied us very well. With the bikes we had the opportunity to stop everywhere, take photos and learn a lot about the history of Madrid. We can only recommend.

We really enjoyed this tour. It was a good break from the all day walking where your feet throb. Great way to see a lot in a short period of time( Not possible by foot). We covered a lot of ground and saw all the major highlights of the city with a knowledgeable, considerate and friendly tour guide.

David Alejandro was an excellent tour guide. His background of history and multiple masters degree exemplified his plentiful knowledge of architecture, history, and culture. Friendly throughout the tour answering all questions; responded well to multiple unexpected flat tires in multiple bicycles (due to shards of broken bottles from sporting event/fandom in plaza mayor).
