What You Can Expect
From La Casa Encendida, continue to another four lesser-known rooftops around central Madrid. These buildings vary on each tour as the opportunities are endless but typical examples include a modern rooftop of a national museum, a library that seems dull on the outside but not when you step inside, a department shop roof, and a tapas bar or the rooftop terrace of a bustling food market. A mix of steps and elevators are used to take you to each rooftop.
At each of the buildings' rooftops, enjoy unsurpassed views of the city from several different angles. Look out for sights of the Prado Museum and beautiful Buen Retiro Park, and have your camera ready to capture views of the bustling Plaza de Cibeles, Gran Via shopping street, Madrid Royal Palace and more.
Roughly halfway through the tour, stop for a drink (coffee, beer, wine or soda) and chat with your guide about other places you may want to visit independently. The city is full of off-the-beaten-path vantage points and hidden gems, and — as a local expert — your guide has plenty of tips for interesting sights to see.
After three hours of ogling Madrid’s skyline from different lookout points, your tour finishes at a central location, decided on the day. Simply ask your guide for onward directions, if you need them.
This tour was very nice -I recommend it ;-))
We were Lucky to have a great guide who was very knowledgeable and we also had a lot of fun with him.
The rooftops we saw during the tour were interesting and very different.
This was an interesting tour to do but it may be better not to try it on a weekend when the locals fill the rooftops you come to see. There were two roofs that were simply unavailable on the day we went which was a pity as these two were presumably the better vantage points. Veronica our guide was very enthusiastic and we still had a nice walking tour around the city, with lots of interesting chatter and information, and as there were just my wife and myself with the guide, it was very informal.
