Private Tour of Madrid

7.70 / 10
Carmen and I walked from my hotel in Salamanca to the city centre and she pointed out many interesting and iconic buildings on the way giving me their potted history. We ended up having a drink together in a tapas bar in the centre and the three hours simply sped by. The walk helped to orientate myself for some more sightseeing the next day.

Reserve a private tour of Madrid and an expert English-speaking guide will organize a tailor-made tour depending on what you and your party want to see and do in Spain’s capital. It’s the ideal way of exploring Madrid!

Private Tour of Madrid

The usual itinerary of the private tour includes points of interest as important as Retiro Park. From there, passing through the Puerta de Alcalá ordered to be built by king Carlos III, we head Plaza de Cibeles to see the facade of the Palacio de Linares and the Palacio de Cibeles, which houses the Madrid City Council.

From the town hall, we head up Calle de Alcalá and Gran Vía to see the Círculo de Bellas Artes and the Instituto Cervantes. Following the route, we will arrive at Puerta del Sol, where the headquarters of the Community of Madrid are located. And nearby is Plaza Mayor, presided over by the sculpture of the seventeenth-century king Felipe III.

The walking tour then continues along Calle Mayor, where we will stop at the Mercado de San Miguel and the beautiful Plaza de la Villa, where you'll see the Torre de los Lujanes, one of the oldest buildings in Madrid.

From the Plaza de la Villa, we will turn down Bailén Street to, after two and a half or five hours of walking, admire from the outside the imposing Almudena Cathedral and the famous Royal Palace of Madrid.

Hotel pick up

Depending on your customized itinerary, your guide can either come and collect you from your hotel or you can choose to meet your guide in a specific location in central Madrid. If you want to do a standard itinerary, we recommend you meet your guide in the Retiro Metro Station (line 2).
