Things to know


    Marina was a lovely tour guide. We learned a lot about the city, and the landmarks. We only had one day to tour Madrid, and felt like we saw many highlights on our tour. A much better experience than trying to navigate the city alone, and attempt to understand the significance of the buildings and history in such a short time. Would highly recommend!

    Marina was very knowledgeable and showed me the highlights of the city, as well as some that not all tours see and only the locals, know about.

    Wondering typical neighborhoods, sipping coffee in a local shop, discussing the joys and challenges of today's Spain, sharing life experiences over delicious food in an authentic Spanish restaurant - these were all part of our amazing day with Silvia. Through Silvia we learned so much about life in Spain and its people, one of our primary motivations for travel. This was our first experience with CityUnscripted and it was much more like meeting up with a friend of a friend instead of a tour guide. We signed up for an 8-hour day which I thought may be too long. But the day flew by as we wandered, ducked into neighborhood stores and churches, watched children running through parks, and got to know Silvia, an innovative entrepreneur and journalist with a insatiable curiosity about everything around her and a perpetual twinkle in her eye, and her life. We also did some touristy things but saw them through the eyes of a local. Now back home, when we think of Madrid we do think of the Prado and the Palace and the churros. But we especially think of Silvia and how she lovingly shared with us the city she knows and loves. We will definitely seek out other experiences with CityUnscripted in our future travels. Highly recommended!

    We had a 3 person tour (myself and my 2 kids, ages 8 and 12) with Silvia. She was great. She showed us everything we wanted to see with some extras too. We walked a lot but also had time to rest in a beautiful park or shop. Silvia is friendly and spoke easily with my kids. Her English is perfect. I would definitely recommend her.
