Streets, Markets and Sites with a private guide
We'll get to know together the maze of streets of this wonderful and controversial city. The evolution of its city plan since its foundation topped with a little tapa or hot chocolate with churros (depending on the time we start) in some of our fantastic markets or very old centenary cafeterias, or Champagne and oysters, you're the boss!
The city starts growing mainly after Philip II settles in Madrid with his court in 1561. That's the reason why the greatest part of the Old City is called the Habsburg district, or los Austrias, as we say here.
I will stay open to your wishes and needs.
We can make it more or less historical or gastronomical, photo tour or just having a nice day together, getting to know how the heart of the city throbs through us.
Large groups welcome too!
Main aim: Have fun!
From meeting point in front of the very famous café and restaurant, Café de Oriente, we will view the Orient Square for the views of the Royal Palace of Madrid, from there through the Old City, plaza de la Villa, Plaza Mayor, Plaza Santa Ana and Plaza Mayor as must be sights. On our way we'll be exploring the maze of surprising streets of the Old City of Madrid, and getting to know the history of the city.
Great pictures! If you are a photography lover, I'll give you some useful tips for the best shots.

Walking around Old Madrid with Susana is exactly the reason why you want a local guide. She shared with us the history of old Madrid, took us to secret spots like inside a restaurant where we saw an old map of ancient Madrid, the oldest wood burning oven, etc. Highly recommend this tour if you want to see the special places in Old Madrid.
