Overview
The firm itinerary of a typical walking tour can feel impersonal and rushed. Take your time and enjoy the personalized attention of your guide with a private tour of the neighborhoods of the Bourbons and Habsburgs. Visit top attractions, such as the Royal Palace, Cibeles Square, and the San Miguel Market, and uncover their secret histories. Save time finding a meeting point with hotel pickup and drop-off included.
Highlights
  • Customize your private tour of Madrid to suit your interests
  • Benefit from the undivided attention of your private guide
  • Discover Madrid’s history and architecture from an art historian
  • Maximize time spent touring, with pickup and drop-off included
What to Expect
Meet your guide at your Madrid hotel at a time that suits your schedule. Share your interests with your guide for a flexible itinerary that can be customized according to your tastes. Wander to the Oriente Square and marvel at the Royal Palace of Madrid. Then, head to Cibeles Square and see striking buildings around the plaza, including the Bank of Spain, the Palace of Linares, and the Cybele Palace. Stroll down the Paseo de Recoletos toward the Plaza de Colón, noticing the Cibeles Fountain, where Real Madrid FC fans congregate to celebrate the team’s trophy wins. Visit the San Miguel tapas market for insight into Madrid’s culture, and explore the architectural highlights along the Gran Via. Listen as your professional art historian guide shares insights into the city’s culture and history, and uncover the secrets of Spain’s royal house, before concluding your tour at your original point of departure.
