Leire was a great guide. She especially adapted to my expectations and my desires. With strong historical knowledge, she was able to explain to me for a good 2.5 hours the evolution of Madrid and its current situation (social, economic...) by visiting the historic center of this beautiful city of Madrid at my own pace ( which I was totally unaware of). While advising me of good addresses for the rest of my stay. I specify that we always take a visit of 2/3 hours when we go to a new place and I strongly think that it is the best of the guides on I could meet. Thanks Leira.

Terrific Tour!!!

The tour was super informative & well structured. We were shown all of the main tourist attractions and learned lots about the city’s history and culture. Our guide, Leire, was fantastic and really made an effort to show us extra little hidden gems around the city, taught us a few Spanish words and gave us special recommendations for food etc! From start to finish the tour was really enjoyable and the time just flew by! Would definitely recommend to family and friends looking to explore Madrid!
