Highlights of Madrid in 4 hours.

First time in Madrid? So, this should be your tour!! To learn about the origins of the city and also, on the other hand, to get a general idea of the whole city and its different sectors. Spain was in the 16th century the most powerful country in the world. And Madrid became its capital in 1561.
We will start by a private tour by car, of the diffenent sectors of Madrid: Salamanca Sector with the beautiful architecture of the XIX century and international boutiques, Paseo de la Castellana, the beautiful fountains of the XVIII century decorating Prado Promenade. . . etc.
Soon after this general overview, we will discover the beautiful places of the oldest sector in Madrid . This time on food, the best way to experience the so called "Madrid of the Habsbourg": Plaza de Oriente, Plaza de la Villa, Plaza Mayor, the Market of San Miguel and finally, the busy Puerta del Sol, that is the heart fo the city.

A Recent Review of this tour

Marilus completely customized our half day tour based on our requests. She was able to provide a car and driver to give us an overview of the city and then provided us with a great combination of a walking tour of the older part of Madrid. Mariluz was very knowledgeable, easy to understand (we speak English) and very pleasant to be around. We would definitely use her again when we return to Spain to see other areas.
