Free Individual Walking Tour Madrid
Our Secret traveller loved this free tour, calling it "a fine introduction to the Spanish capital" which "...not only manages to cover the fundamental must-sees, such as the architecture, monuments and landmarks, but makes the vast history of the Moorish Empire, Napoleon’s Invasion, and the Spanish Inquisition, among many other topics, completely accessible, easy to comprehend, and enjoyable to learn about. These local tour guides dig deep, from the artistic, cultural, and alternative side of Madrid, the origins of tapas, Hemingway, and excellent tips for local loved restaurants and nightlife, they did a wonderful job!"
