Full description
Escape the busy city streets of Madrid and enjoy a 2-hour bike tour of Retiro Park. Discover the green oasis of the city at the heart of its arts and museum district. Cycle through a green oasis in the heart of the city, and glide gracefully across the "Barrio de las Letras" (Literary Quarter). Learn more about some of Spain’s major literary figures, such as Cervantes and Lope de Vega. Continue to the Prado Museum via Calle de las Huertas. Admire the façade of this temple of Spanish art and pass through the Prado promenade, where you'll discover the art triangle. See one of the most beautiful churches in Madrid as you pass the San Jerónimo el Real Church. Once inside the park, discover a lovely pond, a crystal palace, and a monument to the “Fallen Angel”, one of the only sculptures of the Devil in Spain.

Enjoyable tour. Retiro Park was closed due to wind damage so we toured a number of parks instead. The Get Your Guide description said it was electric bikes but the provider said the tour was for regular bikes. We were going to be going with an electric bike city tour. Since we would not be able to keep up with them we had no choice than to pay 10€ each for electric bikes. This may have been a misunderstanding between GYG and the provider but it was unsatisfactory. The guide was excellent however.
