A terrific city tour with Javier from "Madrid in German"

This city tour with Javier from “Madrid in German” was simply fantastic in every way. Javier picked us up at the hotel on time, first showed us the area around the hotel, pointed out restaurants and bars in the surrounding area, conveyed the exciting past of Madrid in an entertaining way, and took us through the narrow alleys and streets of the old town to the other parts of this friendly one Metropolis led. His enormous knowledge of the buildings and monuments of Madrid as a trained architect was an enrichment and made us wander through the city in amazement with our heads back. The time passed by in a flash and it was a real gift from Javier, despite the expiry of the booked time, to discover Madrid for another hour on foot with us. “Madrid auf Deutsch”, an agency run by Javier and his German wife, is highly recommended, excellently organized, very supportive with all possible inquiries and responsive to individual requests!

Senor Javier Sadon Alhambra picked us up at our hotel on time and, as agreed, led us a good 3 hours on foot through historic Madrid. He brought the story closer to us in a very interesting and competent manner. Provided us with countless valuable tips about museums, bars, restaurants, curiosities, etc. It was a great, exciting and instructive tour that we can warmly recommend to everyone!

It was wonderful, we loved it. Javier is TOP - greetings
