Madrid from another level! Wonderful to see the places only locals visit and enjoy the atmosphere of Madrid. Myrte was our guide and was very friendly and knowledgeable. It was great to experience every rooftop and neighborhood.
we were so happy we did this tour early in our visit to Madrid - we say some great vistas - but the bonus was that we learned about the layout of the city, found some great rooftop bars and restaurants we would have never known about - a few I wonder if even all the locals know about.. take notes, you'll want to come back for a nice dinner - and for sure plan to stay after the tour at the last stop - you'll be in a phenomenal bar, with an awesome city view right at sunset! a great place to hang out over a drink or two and watch the city lights come on :-
WE didn't know what to expect form this tour, but we extremely glad we booked it. The different views from each rooftop were amazing and we saw contrasting views from each rooftop too. Definitely showed us an alternative side to Madrid. The tour guide was extremely friendly and knew a lot about the city and buildings.
We really enjoyed seeing Madrid from the rooftops!! Our guide was brilliant, well informed and very friendly.
This is a great tour and Lupe was a wonderful guide. As the group consisted of only my husband and I on that day, we had the full attention of the guide who gave us a good insight into the life of ordinary people in Madrid. The rooftops we visited were awesome and the last rooftop was a fitting end cause we had a bird's eye view of the whole city. I would encourage anyone who is visiting Madrid for the first time, to go on this tour as it helps you to understand what it is like living in Madrid.
Lupe was an excellent guide. The walking was easy and all of the roofs were available that she had planned for us. It was great to see a side of Madrid most tourists never get to see and I would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Madrid!
The tour was amazing. Lupe (the tour guide) was great. Despite an initial setback (rooftop closed) she readjusted the tour route and showed us amazing places that only a local would know. Lupe was ready going and after the tour we felt we had made a new friend.
Fantastic experience. We went around 5 different areas of Madrid and not only showed the views but given an insight into the cultureof the city. Great fun and would recommend to everyone for a great experience. We revisited several rooftops afterwards just to prolong the great fun
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.
our guide was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and she obviously enjoys her job. The last two stops even had a bar and they were something else!
The 2 young ladies guiding our tour were excellent! Madrid must be seen from the rooftops to get true understanding of the city. It's not only rooftops, we learned so much more about the culture in the different barrios and discovered restaurants/cafes that are hidden away from the tourists. Should have done this tour when we 1st arrived, many places we should have gone too.
Great fun! We were actually the only four people on this tour and that made it even more fun since it was basically private! Our guide was enthusiastic and seemed to know everyone along the way! We enjoyed seeing Madrid from a different perspective and certainly would have never made it to the places she took us to. The views were spectacular! Certainly a good value.
We really enjoyed our tour and I would do it again. Our guide was great and there were no other people on it with us, so we had a lot of interesting conversation while walking. The only down side was that several of the rooftops that we were supposed to view were not open on Sunday. Our guide had backups, but even some of them were not available. It would have been nice if that was worked out ahead of time.
Note from Viator: Thank you for making us aware of the slight change of itinerary during the weekends. We have added a note under Additional Information of this tour to make future customers aware of this situation.
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.
This was a very interesting tour, taking us into the less touristy areas of Madrid and into buildings which we would not have known existed had it not been for our tour guide. Our guide was extremely friendly and helpful, giving us many tips about which restaurants/sites to see/avoid and providing us with an insight into the "real" Madrid.
I would recommend others to do this tour at the start of their stay in Madrid. It is quite a long tour (3 hours with about half an hour stop in a local cafe for a drink), and can be quite tiring in the heat (around 40 degrees when we were there!), so this probably wouldn't be suitable for those with mobility or health issues. That said, we really enjoyed our tour and would definitely recommend it to other travellers.
Lots of walking with little to see. Not much information and no time to even sight-see much along the way between the rooftops. Disappointed and do not recommend.
