Know More about this tour

When we travel, one souvenir we like to bring back with us is a better knowledge of the places we visit. This 3-hour walking tour of Madrid provides that knowledge and more. Meet your guide, a scholar on citys history, architecture and culture, in Isabel II Square, a landmark that is representative of the kind of urban changes brought in by the 19th-century monarchy.

Walk through the medieval core of the city, which has remained remarkably unchanged since the period when the Habsburgs occupied the Spanish throne (15061700). The first stop in this area is the Puerta del Sol, the epicenter of Spains highway network and the site of the popular uprising against the French in 1808.

Visit the Plaza Mayor, a, intimate square surrounded by ornate buildings that almost feels like an enlarged courtyard. Today the plaza is lined with quaint restaurants and bars.

The tour wraps up afterward, leaving you free to explore the center of Madrid.

  • This trip was a major concern because the confirmation and voucher clearly stated the tour commenced at 4.00pm. When we rang to confirm, as advised on the confirmation voucher, they agent conducting the tour said the tour actually started at 9.30am, which was too early for us to make it to the meeting place.

    Eventually after much negotiation we arranged to have the guide meet us at 4.00pm as there was another couple whose documentation from Viator had the wrong time written on it. The tour operator did say that this was not an unusual situation with Viator. May I suggest you do something about getting the timing right on your documents.

  • This was excellent due entirely to our guide. He was outstanding in explaining the history of the city.
