A great way to see a lot of the city with a knowledgeable guide. Alejandro/David seemed to know everything there was to know about the history of Madrid. This is a very leisurely tour on mostly flat roads. My wife was considering upgrading to an e-bike because some reviews say the tour is hilly. She was glad she didn't bother. There a couple of inclines, but that's it. A special mention for our guide who, while talking about the Spanish Royal family, took the time to pass on his condolences to us (the only Brits on the tour) following the death of the Queen the day before. And also for directing us to the best tapas we had in Barcelona.

The bike tour was an excellent way to explore the sights in Madrid. It was our first visit to the city and this tour was very helpful for a quick overview. We rented E- bikes and really enjoyed the experience as it allowed us to just focus on the scenery and locations along the route. I don’t think the e-bikes are necessary though as the course is quite flat. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we thought he did a good job. He was also very safe and therefore we always felt comfortable when navigating in the traffic. Highly recommend this tour if it is your first time in Madrid.

This bike tour was really impressive! You get the chance to see the major city highlights in three hours. Even now and then you get off your bike and listen to the explanations of the guide. Chris (my guide) was a local and gave us a lot of “insider” suggestions about what to try and discover in Madrid. I highly recommend this tour to people looking for a smart, fresh and funny way to discover Madrid.
