What you'll do
On your fully personalised experience, visit the top sights you’d love to tick off your Madrid bucket list as well as visiting the authentic spots that are recommended by your Local Host, giving you a unique insider’s perspective on life in the city that you wouldn’t find in a guidebook.
Stop for lunch at a cafetería, street food market or tapas bar recommended by your Local Host, a spot where you can try authentic local cuisine and which suits your preferences, budget and dietary requirements.
Your Local Host will also advise you on the best way to spend the following days of your trip, allowing you to discover other areas of Madrid that you will love.
What To Expect
We’ll be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personality and interests so we can assign a like-minded Local who can create a bespoke experience for you.
Your Local Host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary and agree a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience you can always change your mind about what you want to do.
Your Local Host may also suggest adjustments or new routes if they feel that there is something just around the corner that you may enjoy, or perhaps if the weather affects your itinerary.
Although you will see the main attractions in the area, your Local host will also help you to discover the places, things and stories that you won’t find in a guidebook and that make the city unique.
How This Benefits You
With a local by your side, you’ll be able to go beyond the superficial and connect with Madrid and its people, getting to know what truly makes the city unique.
Get relevant advice to help you save time and money during the rest of your trip; using local insight you’ll be able to get around, skip tourist pitfalls and experience life like a local.
See the main attractions with the benefit of local knowledge like the best times to avoid the crowds, but also explore off-the-beaten path areas where the locals really live.
Our Local Hosts can all speak English, but many also speak Spanish, French, Portuguese, Hindi, Bengali, Indonesian and Italian so can connect with you culturally as well as with your personality.

Personalised Full Day with a Local | MadridReview by: Alissa S
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.
