Follow the unique route which your Local Host has designed specifically to take in your chosen attractions, as well as including a few secret local spots along the way!
Spend time getting to know your Local Host who can give you advice, insider tips and Madrid travel hacks and suggest things to see, do and eat that they know you’ll 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.

Must See Madrid in a Day | MadridReview by: Amy W
Personalized Attention with a Passionate and Knowledgeable Guide
Joanna asked me what my favorite experiences were and then created a fabulous personalized walking adventure in Madrid. We spent eight hours seeing gardens, markets, shopping, eating, and taking pictures in all the historical districts. We walked a lot, but the conversation and historical information shared made the day be totally pleasurable. We toured multiple art museums together and her expertise in Art History was obvious. She prides herself in her guests having a great experience. Wonderful day with a wonderful person.
