Route: Madrid in one Day - Grand Tour

During the first part of the tour we will visit the “Hapsburg Madrid” (Old Town) which is considered the heart of the city. This district includes renowned buildings such as the Royal Palace, Plaza Mayor or the Royal Theatre.

After the Old Town, we will discover the “Bourbon Madrid” (18th and 19th century). This beautiful area is full of palaces, fountains, gardens and incredible buildings. Here you will see the world-famous Prado Museum and the Alcalá Gate, one of the symbols of Madrid.

At the end of the tour, we will get to a roof-top bar, from where you will enjoy the best panoramic view of Madrid city center. A cherry on top!

After this tour you will have a deeper understanding of Madrid, a city steeped in history. Our local guides will make you discover the Madrid you never knew through legends, interesting facts, local tips and much more.

The tour starts at 10 A.M. and ends around 2:30 P.M so you will still have time for shopping, museums or visiting other areas of Madrid. For example, you can visit the Prado Museum or Reina Sofia Museum.

And to finish this day we recommend enjoying a genuine show of Flamenco in Madrid (click here for more info).

I booked this tour from UK & all contact was extremely helpful & efficient. We were met by Tatiana at our hotel & for the next 6 hours we were entertained & educated in the life & history of Madrid. We saw many different aspects to its culture, we tasted local food. It was pitched perfectly for both myself & two teenagers. We saw the main tourist spots, but didn't dwell on them & we saw sides to Madrid that were beautiful & that we could not have got from any guide book. Our guide, Tatiana, will remain in our memories whenever we talk or hear about Madrid. Certainly worth the money.

Our kids are still talking about our tour with Tatiana. She tailored our private tour perfectly. Our kids learned a ton from her and were always entertained. She took us to all the best eats and showed us all the top sights in Madrid. We've traveled to numerous destinations, and I can say that she's probably the best tour guide we've ever had!

Passion is not a common emotion when dealing with tourists day after day but Tatiana and husband Javier who own Ogo maintain passion for their beautiful city. After more than 4 hours, we WANTED MORE. Tatiana provides the right balance of historical facts and more importantly takes you through the back alleys. Local knowledge leads to helpful restaurant tips ( she even calls to make the reservation ) and perhaps the only view of " Vermouth" on tap....no I won't tell, just Go Go with OGOTOURS now to find the authentic Madrid.
