    Our tour of Madrid was an unforgettable experience. From the iconic Oso y el Madroño, we explored the city's history and cultural treasures. Mariña's expertise brought landmarks like the grand palace and the breathtaking opera house to life. Her captivating storytelling immersed us in Madrid's past. We enjoyed a visit to a hidden gem—a quaint taverna tucked away in a picturesque corner. It provided a perfect place to relax and savor local flavors. The tour also included a visit to the Museo de Historia de Madrid, deepening our understanding of the city's heritage. This must-do tour combined rich insights, well-chosen locations, and hidden gems. Thanks to Mariña, we left with a newfound appreciation for Madrid and an eagerness to explore more.

    Great tour. Very informative and fun. Our guide Gonzala even stopped by a market stand and ordered us mulled wine in a souvenir mug with a sweet treat to enjoy along the journey. We learned so much about this great city. He knew all the best photo locations.

    Thanks Patricia for such a fun and memorable tour of Madrid - you've expanded the charm and beauty of Madrid! We had a great day full of laughter and inpiring stories of what makes Madrid the ciry that it is today. You're very knowledgeable and informative about the history and made us love the story of Madrid as a city. We explored various plazas (each with its own charm), wondered at the Royal Palace and Cathedral, heard the history of shops that have been around for centuries, seen the significance of buildings throughout the city, and got good recommendations for good food and experiences to explore further. Thanks for a great day! Would highly recommend for a day filled with happy memories and knowledge about what makes Madrid beautiful as it is.
