Full description
At dusk, when the sun sets over Madrid, shadows from the past stretch out like ancient ghosts to veil the city in the black of night, with only lanterns leading the way. During this walk through alleys and squares, you will explore hidden corners and hear facts and ghost stories, superstitions and old beliefs, as well as stories of hatred and persecution. This tour presents the dark side of the city and the folklore of the Los Madriles, told by an elegant narrator who will share with you the most intimate and atrocious aspects of the Spanish Inquisition.

Our American tour guide was well placed as an actor and also a bit theatrical, which goes well with the topic. My friend and I really liked it. However, she should have spoken louder or used a loudspeaker, since the noise and background noise were often very high. Otherwise, one or the other story was a bit too long-winded for me, but the tour is definitely recommended. The guide was very personable and tried hard.

Our tour guide Davy was very funny and told interesting stories, you will learn stories about streets and buildings that you would otherwise walk past, the tour contributed a lot to our positive holiday experience here in Madrid. It gives you the feeling that you have experienced the city and its past and customs more intensely.

We returned delighted with our visit. Our guide, Elizabeth, knows her subject very well. She conveyed the information in detail and played the characters she spoke to us very well. With the drizzle falling, it added to the gloomy side of the talk. We were a group of 8, perfect for this kind of activity.
