Carmen was delightful and incredibly knowledgeable about Spanish history. We saw great palaces, churches, crypts and very old shopping centers and buildings. She was an incredible tour guide!

Here is what was missing.
Andrea H
, Oct 2019
In all of the readings, audio tours and guidebooks, there is something missing. How has the political history of Spain affected the social history of its people? What is it like in a societal sense, to live in Madrid today? Why does that massive statue of a glorious moment matter to a citizen of Spain? If any of that interests you, take this tour. Yes, you’ll get the history and a bit of architecture. But you also get to stand in the shoes of the average person. We were fascinated by this tour and Maria was wonderful. Ask her anything and she will anticipate your interests and taylor the tour of her local area to your needs. Wear good walking shoes!

While the guide was nice he didn't seem to know much about this history of most places and/or Madrid. In several instances what he shared with us was actually wrong. I wouldn't recommend this tour as one could visit these places with just a map. One of the things I had come to like of most Viator tours is that guides are very knowledgeable and give you some of insights (and sometimes gossip) of the places you visit. In this tour this was completely absent and the guide did not seem to know much about the history of the places included in the walking tour

If you want to see something out of the ordinary and listen to a guide who really knows - and loves - this town - would recommend this tour highly. Good fun. The bar at the very end was the best finale! Ole!

The Walk of a Lifetime

Our initial impression of Madrid was that it was just another big modern city. This tour proved that the history of Madrid is alive in its many beautiful districts. The Palace gardens were very beautiful, as well as the Egyptian monument. The oldest restaurant and the squares we walked were lovely. We walked as far as the Prado as we had tickets to visit that afternoon, it was a long way! Very worthwhile and enjoyable.

My guide was Beth McGowan and she was great. From Ohio but has lived in Madrid for 20 plus years. Lives in the heart of the City so knows it very well. It was a walking tour and saw places such as the Convenanto de la Encarnacion,the Palacio, Jardinas de la Plaza de Cabo Noval, ,Plaza de Oriente,Plaza De La Villa and some interesting local markets and shops. Well worth the time and money. Highly recommend.

Mejor hubiera gastado 100 euros en croquetas

100 euros a la basura. Llegamos y lo primero que nos dice el caballero es “hace un año no hago esto, soy guia en ingles y la verdad tomo fotos. Termine haciendo tours por que no me quedo de otra.” (habíamos pedido en español) El recorrido fue algo interesante pero la verdad dejo mucho que desear. Y por favor bajo ni guna citcunstancia ir a VI COOL, un rest que nos recomendaron. Estaba terrible. La verdad muy baja la calidad en general.
