    In between cheering during a bullfight or dipping churros in gooey chocolate, you’ll want to discover the best that Madrid has to offer. That’s where we come in, amigos. Our local guides will show you the Spanish capital with a little flare and fiesta, bringing history and culture to life in its streets and museums. We’ll make sure you experience the icons – like the Prado Museum and Royal Palace – without wishing you could just take a siesta instead. Don’t worry, though, there will be plenty of time for a bit of tapas when we’re done with you, and, even better, you’ll know the best places to go.

    Marta was a great guide, very considerate and knowledgeable. She began by first asking what we had in mind, and she curated the tour based on our interests. Would highly recommend. We only had one day to see Madrid, and we felt we were able to see the majority of what we wanted.
