Get oriented in Madrid without the worry and wonderings of having to plan an entire itinerary on your own - we’re exhausted just thinking about it. Instead, you’ll leave your comfort zone in total comfort as one of our local Madrid hosts introduces you to their city.
Discover hidden gems and world-famous landmarks, avoid all of the tourist traps and learn the best ways to move and shake your way through the city (although we will say that walking is always a blast here - so much to see, and there’s always tapas bars and churros shops to stop at when you need a rest).
Get a snapshot of this golden metropolis (coincidentally, you can really take a snapshot of the city at its golden hour from the Temple of Debod) and ask any of the 101 questions we know you’ve got about what to do in the city.
You could explore iconic museums, contemporary art galleries or get lost in a royal palace where there are over 3,000 bedrooms (bit much, we know) or just unwind over some tapas and pick your host’s brain, it’s all up to you!

Minha experiência começou alguns dias antes da data marcada para o tour, sendo que Nicola, que foi responsável por me guiar no tour, me enviou emails me explicando em detalhes como iriamos nos encontrar, e uma sugestão de intinerário. Na hora marcada, começamos o passeio por Madri. Tive a oportunidade de conhecer vários detalhes históricos dos principais edifícios e ruas da cidade. Além disso, Nicola me levou a dois mercados para que eu pudesse experimentar um pouco da culinária local... o sanduiche ramón é imperdível, como também as croquetas!!! Para finalizar, uma passada por alguns dos museus da cidade, com destaque para o Museu do Prado. Bem, foi um dia agradabilíssimo, com o encontro de mais um amigo. se recomendo, claro, com certeza!
Joanna was our guide and she was fantastic! My son and I found her so easy to get along with. She was very friendly, knowledgeable of the history of the various barrios we walked through, and she turned us on to some some fantastic food and drink treats. Her organization, CityUnscripted, has a real gem of a person/tour guide in Joanna.
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!
Just because it’s not here doesn’t mean we can’t offer it.
