Introducing Madrid Tour from Across Madrid

Introducing Madrid

Are you looking for a quality orientation tour of the thriving capital of Spain? Would you like to come to grips with the complex history of the Habsburg and Bourbon dynasties? Want to get some sound advice on places to eat? Would you like some information on museums and historical sites to visit while you are here? Are you interested in current affairs and Spanish politics? Come walk with Dr. Almudena Cros! She is a true Madrileña, born and raised here, and she is happy to share her insider knowledge and family traditions with you.  .

This 3 hour walking tour with a History professor is an in-depth experience to understand how the city works as we explore its cultural highlights. We will trace the history of Madrid and its development from its medieval roots to the modern times, when it became the thriving capital of Spain, and we will fill you in with the latest news and useful tips.

This is effectively a briefing on what's on in Madrid, what to do and see (and what to avoid) while you are here as you get a sense of social and cultural events. This orientation walk will also provide you with the essential historical background you need to understand what is happening in 21st century Madrid.
