What you'll do

Wander through one or two neighbourhoods of Madrid with a Local Host who knows and loves the areas, visiting the most famous attractions in the city or immersing yourself in off the beaten path neighbourhoods to discover the authentic spots where locals eat, drink and go with friends.Read more +

Stop for tapas or a beer at one of the local’s favourite bars, cafeterías or street food markets; a place that suits your preferences, budget and dietary requirements.

Stop by any shops, galleries, markets or spots that catch your eye as you make your way through the city on your personalised route which remains flexible throughout, get local insight into well known sites and discover a few hidden spots that you wouldn’t find in a guidebook.

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.
