What to expect

Discover the essence of Madrid on this private tour with a local guide at your disposal. This experience is part of Iconic Insiders, a selection of tours designed for first time visitors to uncover what matters and get oriented in a new city. Your destination insider is a licensed guide who will offer recommendations and highlight the most visually attractive places of the itinerary.

This personalized tour will not only show you the history of Madrid, but it will also allow you to experience the culture, gastronomy, and life of the Spanish capital. Madrid has streets, legends, and proverbs that only insiders of the city can tell. We have this all sorted for you!

Start your experience walking from the beginning of the time, when Madrid was only a little village, up to the moment in which Philipp II transformed it into the capital of the Spanish empire. Accompanied by your expert local guide, you'll discover the Madrid of the Habsburgs as an amazing example of how a city and its population may change and grow without losing its essence, keeping what is called the Madrid Castizo through the years.

Don't miss the chance to walk through the heart of Madrid and take your most instagrammable spots of the top attractions, such as the amazing Puerta del Sol, and Plaza Mayor. Following a flexible itinerary, you'll travel into the city's history admiring the impressive complex of the Royal Palace, facing the Almudena Cathedral, and followed by the Plaza de Oriente, an area with a unique photogenic appeal. Immerse yourself in the Spanish essence listening to the history and anecdotes that your local guide will share with you, while you amaze by the architecture of Plaza de la Villa and the Royal Theatre. On your itinerary, you'll also see historic icons such as the Arco de Cuchilleros and the Monument to victims of the attack against Alfonso XIII.
