We had a fabulous day with Natalia. She is a delight to be with-- her selections of places to visit were spot on--her lunch restaurant ( and what she ordered for us ) was better than the Michelin restaurant we dined at that evening! Our thanks to her and the driver for a terrific day.

Natalie was great, she conducted a private tour for 4 people that was the perfect introduction to dining in Madrid and shared great tidbits of history along the way. Natalie helped us find hidden gems and provided insights on what to avoid. Thanks Natalie for a fun afternoon I highly recommend this tour

Cydney SavageUnited States
Natasha was wonderful - very knowledgeable! She also teaches art history to journalism students, and I could definitly tell her students were engaged - we learned so much! She was sensitive to our pace, was able to comment on the odd questions about other art we were passing, and navigate a twirly multi-level maze where a trail of breadcrumbs would not be possible. Thank you Natasha - the 'highlights tour' proved to be highlight of our holiday
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your comment! It was really nice to be with such an enthusiastic group! I really enjoyed it.

First Class tour Guide!! Her vast knowledge of Art History created a great timeline through the Prado & Reina Sofia Museums. Thoroughly enjoyed her interaction with our teenage children to keep them engaged! Thank you!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank vey much for your comment. It was a pleasure to be with the four of you, the teenagers were great!
Francie SpahnUnited States
Our guide was just lovely! Her tour of the Prado was perfect for a family of teenagers. She included them, gave us the pertinent highlights of the most important pieces, but didn't weigh us down with so much information that the kids would space out.
Brian PrudentUnited States
Natalia was great. We had three kids and in the rain but she still gave a great tour. She had many good suggestions for restaurants and was available after the tour to help with any questions.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Brian. It was very nice to be with all of you, specially with the kids.

Natalia was not only knowledgeable but she was friendly, fun and flexible-the perfect combination for a private guide. She took me to streets and places I haven't seen on previous trips & she was good at noting when to stop for more tapas and cerveza or not. I'm not a big eater so when I suggested ice cream instead, she was all for it! In fact it was a great way to cleanse our pallets. She later took me to the BEST madrileño secret hangout for a nearly 360º view of Madrid, a definite highlight of my trip!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for yur comment! I really enjoyed the tour and I really hope to meet you again!
Bruce PincheonUnited States
Natalia was a complete pleasure to for us. She knows Madrid as a native daughter and customized our tour for our likes and dislikes. We walked through Madrid, hitting on all the highlights our time would allow and Natalia had the background stories to explain what we were seeing and help us feel the true Madrid. She also showed us local restaurants and shopping as well as the beauty, history and charm of her city and areas of interest including all the main squares and their surrounding area. Great tour!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your comment ! I am glad you enjoyed the tour and that I had the opportunity to show you around!
Theodore EastwickUnited States
Natalia is a thoroughly knowledgeable art historian and professor of art history. She has a keen grasp on both the provenance is the art as well as its historical context. We could have spent much more time in her company.
Karen BernallUnited States
This was an excellent tour of Madrid and Natalia was a wonderful and knowledgeable guide. What a great way to get to know the city, its history, neighborhoods, secrets, etc. This was really a highlight of our four day visit and we can't thank Natalia enough for such a warm and pleasant experience.
Elina KatzUnited States
It was a great tour for our family of 8 at Prado Museum in Madrid, Natalia was able to engage our 4 teenagers, they were impressed about paintings, learned about many artists and saying it was their favorite museum. We were happy with Natalia as well. We can highly recommend her as a private tour guide! A+++++
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your comment. It´s been fantastic to be with you and your nice family!
Robb CruserUnited States
Much More than Tapas! The tour with Natalie was one of the highlights of our trip. She was easy to work with and punctual. As we walked Madrid, she gave us a history lesson on the points of interest between our tapa stops. She took us to 3 unique places, each better than the one before. She knew the local wine, the local olive oil and the best places for local food. But even better was learning about Madrid/Spain both past and present from her perspective. Book this tour now!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you ver much for your comment! I am so glad that you enjoyed it and I did too!
Kenneth K.United States
We are experienced international travelers and have visited many major capitals worldwide. This was our first (but not last) visit to Madrid. Natalia's walking tour was spectacular! We saw and learned so much, and exactly what we asked her to show us -- history, culture, food, arts, the real Madrid today. We can't thank her enough. Best wishes and warm regards Natalia!
Nora NewsockUnited States

Natalia was fantastic! We arrived in Madrid only a few hours before our tour and so was using it as an opportunity to not only feed ourselves but to also get orientated around the city. We wanted to get lots of information from Natalia about what else we should do in Madrid and she was very accommodating. We visited 3 different tapas restaurants/bars. There were 10 of us & we were all very well fed. Natalia was happy to order more wine and food as we needed it. Thank you Natalia! Highly recommended
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your comment! I am really glad you enjoyed it, I hope you also had a very good time in Madrid.
Linda S.United States
We were challenging clients for Natalia, as we had visited many of the sites she normally shows off on our prior visits to Madrid. She did a nice job discovering what we had not seen in the neighborhoods and providing the background to each area of the city we visited. She did a great job explaining public issues surrounding the reuse of old buildings. We enjoyed out three house of wandering with her. It was a great way to better understand the differences in the areas we visited. Excellent tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your comment! It was really challenging to guide you as you already knew so much about the city, but I really enjoyed it and I am really glad you did too.

Jane EvansUnited States
Our tour of Madrid with Natalia G. was an AMAZING day of personalized service! She led us through the streets of Madrid, pointing out interesting details we never would have seen on our own. The Tapas Tour included 3 different taverns with the best drinks/ Tapas that we had during our 10 day stay in Madrid. We went to a rooftop terrace and had a drink while seeing Madrid from a birds eye view. On a scale of 1-5, we give Natalia a PERFECT 10!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jane, Thank you very much for taking the time to leave such a wonderful comment, I really appreciate it. It was a pleasure to be with you and your nice family.
Jane W.Houston, TX, United States
While I've never been disappointed in any of the many Tours by Locals tours I've taken, Natalia's engaging personality and the easy rapport I instantly felt with her, combined with her profound knowledge of all things Madrid, made this tour especially memorable and fun. I would wholeheartedly recommend this tour with Natalia and I hope to take another with her one day!
