Our tour guide Luis showed us his city with enthusiasm, helping us understand Madrid from before its founding to today. During the tour, he kindly answered all our questions and let us go at our own pace. I highly recommend this tour when you get to Madrid.

Our walking tapas and tasting tour was phenomenal! Our guide was fun and personable. We were able to go to markets we might not have discovered on our own. We tasted incredible pastries, wine, cheeses, olives, ham, candy and cookies!

I only had one day to spend in Madrid and so glad that I chose this tour. Laura was an excellent guide showing both popular and some other less well known sites. I had a great day exploring this wonderful city!
