Introducing Madrid

Not sure how to best invest your limited time in Madrid? Want to taste some local specialties and get some sound advice on places to eat and drink? 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 us! We are true Madrileños, born and raised here, and we are happy to share our insider knowledge and family traditions with you as we walk through the historic centre and take in the sights and flavours around us.

This 3 hour walk 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, shows and exhibitions.

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.

Length: 3 hours. Maximum group size: 8 people.
