You will walk through the historic center from your hotel, through sights such as Parque de las Vistillas, San Francisco el Grande and Puerta de Toledo.You will visit Plaza Mayor and walk down the Gran Via, Madrid’s showcase shopping district and a testament to early 20th-Century Art Deco architecture. You will take in the Puerta del Sol, where madrileños celebrate New Year’s Eve by eating a grape on the toll of each bell welcoming in the New Year.

During the walk you will have the chance to try some "barquillo," the local liquor of Madroño, and to taste some "Callos a la Madrileña" or "Cocido," served in an authentic atmosphere.

Madrid has been the hometown to many different cultures, and you will get to explore its intimate neighborhoods, walking along one of the oldest streets in the city to La Latina. The route you will follow takes you through the old city, from the Madrid of the Austrias to the first Muslim area, which formed the origins of the city. It includes an overview of the most important sights, talking about its history and legends as you pass sites such as the magnificent royal Plaza de Oriente, and pop in to small taverns to try traditional vermouth with the locals.

But, perhaps most importantly, you will break for the day and enjoy a typical Spanish set-menu lunch, lingering for a couple of hours, breaking bread, drinking wine and putting the world to rights as you feast on simple yet utterly delicious food.

This private and completely customizable tour does not have any fixed itinerary and if you choose to do it again, you will find out that every tour is individual and exclusive. Our experienced local guide, who is native from Madrid, will be sharing his own perception of the city, its culture and history. You will find yourself on an information filled, but exciting and laid back tour, catering to your interests and exceptionally interactive.
