Full description
Take a private 3-hour walking tour through the heart of Madrid, and learn how the Spanish capital has developed over the centuries. Meet on Puerta del Sol, site of Madrid’s easternmost gate in the 15th century. Admire the statue of King Carlos III in the center of the square as your guide explains the history of a country that dominated the 7 seas for centuries and gave birth to Cortes, Cervantes, Velazquez and Goya. Marvel at Hapsburg era buildings on Plaza Mayor and Plaza de la Villa, and admire the baroque Santa Cruz Palace, inspired by Italian architecture. En route to the Royal Palace, pass the 9th-century church of San Gines. Continue to the Teatro Real (Royal Theater), just in front of the Royal Palace. Stop to admire the Almudena Cathedral, built on the site of an old city mosque. Go to Plaza de la Paja and learn why it was the most important square in the Middle Ages.

Our guide was Tanya, in short summary she is great. Let me explain, Tanya is not native resident of Spain but already lives here for 10 years and is already fully integrated in mindset of native Spaniards. She fluently speaks Spanish, English and as we discovered Russian. She knows Spanish history, culture and mindset very good. This tour is great point to start your aquitance with Madrid. You will learn it's history, unpleasant truth, small secrets and much much more. Pace is great and visited sites are with very interesting stories. I would advise to ask for chocolate surprise for end of your trip as awesome ending for such great siteseing. Don't forget to take water and sanitizer for your hands.
