Tour Information

Tour Details

Overview

This is one of the most complete Madrid city tours through the treasures of beautiful city of Madrid: its origins, legends, history and even gastronomy. Together we will walk through the historical center of the city and will learn what Madrid means and what it is – the capital and sometimes overlooked city that has many things to offer and to tell.

You will be accompanied and entertained by the local Spanish guide in love with his (or her) city and very willing to share the historical knowledge, national pride, funny stories and useful tips about Madrid. Although it is a full day tour, you will not have time to get neither tired (as we go at your pace and break for lunch and some refreshments), nor bored (as it's just impossible).

There will be an opportunity to access some of the monuments and historical sites during the tour. Just bear in mind that the visits to these sights will have to be short and the entrance is not included in the price of the tour.

Know More about this tour

We will walk through the historic center from your hotel, through sights such as Parque de las Vistillas, San Francisco el Grande and Puerta de Toledo.

You will visit Plaza Mayor and walk down the Gran Via, Madrid’s showcase shopping district and a testament to early 20th-Century Art Deco architecture. You will take in the Puerta del Sol, where madrileños celebrate New Year’s Eve by eating a grape on the toll of each bell welcoming in the New Year.

During the walk you will have the chance to try some "barquillo," the local liquor of Madroño, and to taste some "Callos a la Madrileña" or "Cocido," served in an authentic atmosphere.

Madrid has been the hometown to many different cultures, and you will get to explore its intimate neighborhoods, walking along one of the oldest streets in the city to La Latina.

The route you will follow takes you through the old city, from the Madrid of the Austrias to the first Muslim area, which formed the origins of the city. It includes an overview of the most important sights, talking about its history and legends as you pass sites such as the magnificent royal Plaza de Oriente, and pop in to small taverns to try traditional vermouth with the locals.

But, perhaps most importantly, you will break for the day and enjoy a typical Spanish set-menu lunch, lingering for a couple of hours, breaking bread, drinking wine and putting the world to rights as you feast on simple yet utterly delicious food.
