What people are saying about Puerta del Sol

I visited off-peak so was the only one on the tour but Mario the tour guide was fantastic and made the tour very enjoyable and explained about all the landmarks we visited. He also helped me to get grasp of the Segway very quickly. It is a great tour and a nice way to explore new surroundings so I reccomend to give it a go. The Segway is also very easy to get used to. Thanks again to Mario hope to do the tour again when weather abit warmer :)

Wonderful way of seeing Madrid. David, our guide, gave us a wonderful account on the complicated history behind Madrid, complete wit) with an understanding of the different styles of architecture. The bikes were very well maintained and great attention was paid to safety. The tour ended with an optional tapas experience that was absolutely scrumptious. Great recommendation!

A brilliant introduction to a new city. Michel was superb as our guide, relaxed, informative and humorous. A small group of just Michel, myself, my wife and another woman. We all got on well, had a nice cafe drink near the crystal palace at the half way point. Madrid, wow, what a spectacular city.
