What you can expect

They say that one can never truly appreciate a city until you wander down its streets. Join me and walk around the city to learn the history behind some of its most iconic sights.

As a Madrid native and history lover, I can show you a side to Madrid that you'll not discover any other way. If you have any specific wishes, let me know. I can fully personalize the tour for you.

We’ll start the tour at the famous Retiro Park, where we’ll walk to Plaza de España. We'll then pass the Royal Palace and the Moorish Wall. We’ll finish our stroll admiring the beauty of the Old City Hall, Plaza Mayor, and Puerta del Sol.

You'll be assured to see the most iconic monuments of the city while enjoying the local neighborhoods, where no tourists can be found. You'll learn about the evolution since the Moorish times until now. Just remember that Madrid has relatively been untouched for centuries, and will give you an almost ancient feel.

After the tour, we’ll enjoy some delicious tapas, beer, wine or sangria.

You’ll leave feeling like a true Spaniard!
