Discover the capital of Spain

Welcome to my city. A place where Spanish tradition and modernity are mixed together. Cloistered Convents live peacefully inside one of the trendiest areas of Madrid. 1st class Painting Galleries and monumental architecture but also popular neighborhoods where locals -and anyone who visit us of course- can enjoy the famous Madrid tapas and street life.

A city founded by the Muslims, for military purposes, is now the capital of a small in size but rich in heritage country, where us, the locals, are willing to be part of the modern world without losing our own identity and peculiarities.

We will discover together not only the highlights of the city but also the hidden corners where real life take place.

A private transportation by car/Van can be arranged. Pricing will modify.


The itinerary is very flexible. There are so many options that can be picked during our tour. After my suggestions you can decide what kind of visit you would like to do, focusing in your interests.
First of all, by taxi or public transportation, we can visit the monumental part of Madrid, long avenues and boulevards that by foot will be too tiring and a waste of our precious time.
And then, walking, we will walk inside the old neighborhoods, with its narrow streets and alleys full of life and history.
A great place we shouldn't miss is a visit inside to the Royal Palace

A Recent Review of this tour

Ernesto provided an excellent walking tour of Old Madrid. He is very knowledgable and interesting. We felt like we got a very good introduction to the areas we toured which provided a great foundation for the rest of our stay. His tour greatly exceeded our expectations!
