Wow! Andrea took us on an incredible tour last Friday morning through four historical neighbourhoods of Madrid. Her knowledge of Madrid's colourful history was extent. We literally ate and drank our way through the old city to experience so many hidden secrets of this beautiful city. Don't miss this tour if you visit Madrid.

One of the very best walking tours I've ever done. Cecilia was tremendous, taking us to places we would otherwise never have seen. The markets and wine and food tastings were perfect.

This was the best waling tour I have been on and I have been on a lot. It went well over the time but we all enjoyed it so much. Cecilia was a great guide. She took us to place we would never have found on our own.

Best tour of the trip. Cecilia was amazing and we learnt so much from her about Madrid. We tried local cheeses, olives and organic wine, bread and fruit first time eating a fresh fig - yum!. We tried churros with hot chocolate, and ended a long and very interesting walk in a local patisserie with the most fabulous cakes. It felt like taking a walk with a good friend! Don't hesitate to do this tour - you won't regret it. Cecilia even managed to cope with a picky eater, a fussy vegetarian mother and a lovely lady who would try anything!

This was very well worth, if only for the tour guide Ines, who was extremely good ,knowledgeable, friendly and charming.
We saw places we probably would not have gone to see .
All in all very good especially as it was only a small group, and Ines interacted with us all.
Well recommended, especially Ines!

This was a very good tour. It was just my friend and I along with the tour guide. So the walk was catered to our needs, which was great. It ran a little longer than 3 hours, but again it was catered to our needs and we had the time. We were able to see places I otherwise would not have known about. Great Walking tour.
