Full description

Get a new perspective of the Spanish capital as you discover the city's best landmarks with a local guide. Madrid's many contrasts are symbols of its rich history, with medieval façades and architecture standing alongside slick modern buildings.   Meet at the activity provider's office and kick off the experience with a 1-hour walking tour through the streets of the historic city center of Madrid. Then board an air-conditioned bus for a ride through the city. Leave Plaza de Oriente and head to the magnificent Puerta de Toledo.

Marvel at the famous gate that dates back to the Napoleonic era. Then, see the oldest bridge in Madrid and drive along the Manzanares River from where you'll take in incredible views of the Royal Palace and the Almudena Cathedral. Pass by Plaza Mayor, once the center of Old Madrid and now the oldest square in the city.  Spot significant sights such as the Puerta del Sol on your drive to Paseo del Prado. Marvel at the most picturesque streets in the city and see the Prado Museum. Drive by Cibeles Fountain, where Real Madrid fans celebrate the team's victories. Do not miss Puerta de Alcalá, the most famous of the five ancient gates into the city. Stop for pictures at Las Ventas bullring, where your guide will share some insights on the monument. To conclude, return to the coach and finish of the tour by exploring Santiago Bernabéu stadium and the important streets of Paseo de la Castellana and Gran Vía, also known as the Broadway of Madrid.

Informative city tour

Not only the typical attractions for tourists were shown, but also everyday life. From time to time there were stops where you could get off. A little refreshment was also included. Unfortunately the tour was not in German. But even if you didn't speak Spanish, the explanations in English helped. In any case, the tour is recommended to get a first overview of the city.

Great Tour! Specially if it’s your first time in Madrid really like our tour guide

Didn't like the tour.

We got off the bus after 1.5 hours from the start of the tour. The guide spoke 2 languages: Spanish and English, as stated in the description. We were guided by English, but she spoke in a monotone and with a Spanish accent. The guide's story about the city and monuments was uninteresting: this is a square built in some year, and on the left are restaurants, shops, etc., where you can leave your money. Such an impression. It's easier to sit at random on a city bus and just look through the window at the city)) City map and navigator to help. At least not boring!
