    Madrid has everything for everyone and a city tour is all you need to experience the vibe of the city. A walk through the historic quarters of Madrid is a good way to introduce yourself to the city. So join an expert city guide and discover the imperial Spanish capital.

    You will meet your guide at your hotel doorstep and then head to Puerto del Sol located at the heart of the city. From here, you will walk up to Calle Mayor, where some of the city’s oldest buildings like Torre de los Lujanos and palaces of the XVI and XVII centuries are situated.
