    My family and I (with children of ages 10, 8 and 6) did a bicycle tour of Madrid with Julio and it was great. Julio texted the day before to confirm our booking, the meeting point was easy to get to and it was a nice introduction to Madrid. We followed the bike paths along the river and stopped at many playgrounds. The ice cream treat was delicious! It was a very good day and we highly recommend Julio as a guide.

    Julio Cesar is definitely one of the best guides I have ever had, and I have had a few! The guy is very real and genuine, wants you to have a good time and wants to help you out with tips.  We all enjoyed our tour around the city with Julio Cesar, and thanks for the cider lunch tip! Great

    We have just finished a biking tour of Madrid with Julio Cesar and had the best time. From booking the experience the communication was brilliant. Julio was extremely knowledgeable about Madrid and full of great stories about the city. One of the kindest person we have ever met, he couldn't do enough to make us feel happy. We discovered lovely areas of Madrid, off the beaten track, we would have never been to otherwise. And the best bit was the level of fitness required which was perfectly achievable to anyone. All 5 of us would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Madrid. Thank you once again Julio.

    Julio was so nice and knowledgeable about everything. He spoke very good English and I had a wonderful day. He made me feel very comfortable as a solo traveler. Biking in the heart of Madrid is not so safe due to all the traffic, so this tour took me through a park along the river in town, and it was great!!

    Julio was a fantastic guide for our tour of Madrid. He was enthusiastic about Madrid and extremely knowledgeable about its history, geography, architecture, society, and the beauty of the city. The biking was perfect along the river with stops for Julio to point out the high points and describe what we were looking at. We stopped for tapas and cerveza along the way and thoroughly enjoyed talking with Julio and learning more about Madrid. Since it was our first day in the city, Julio showed us the different neighborhoods on a map and helped give us ideas about the best ways to spend our 3 days in Madrid. We loved the afternoon and can't recommend Julio highly enough. Thanks for the great experience!

    My wife and I spent over an hour trying to locate the so called merry-go-round that the tour designated as the meeting point. It didn't exist! Viator should immediately investigate this tour for what it is, A SCAM!

    I loved my bike tour with Daniel. I felt like a local and felt like I was with a friend. He was very knowledgeable about the city and any areas we passed by. Would definitely recommend to anyone travelling the area. Thanks for a great day Daniel!

    My nine-year-old son and I spent a nice morning biking along the river with Alexander. Learned about Madrid and enjoyed the cool playgrounds along the way Alexander was a pleasant guide, good with kids. The bike ride is easy and they have kids size bikes.
