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!!

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.

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!

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.

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!

Beyond my expectations, a highlight of my stay in Madrid. Natalia is knowledgeable, professional, personable, approachable & flexible. We saw things we never would have found on our own. She is a true Madrileno, proud of her city & its heritage. Not just another guide but an ambassador for her home. I am a travel agent of 13+ years with many opportunities to use the services of a guide. I would rate her as one of the best.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your message! It was a great pleasure to meet you and to have the opportunity to show you the city I love. Best regards from Madrid!
