Welcome to Madrid! From a dusty outpost on the edge of the enlightened Moorish kingdom to the glorious capital of the world’s biggest empire, from the birthplace of Don Quixote to the dark heart of the Spanish Inquisition, Madrid has seen its highs and lows. Anarchist assassins, dictators and despots, painters and poets - the passion that runs through Spanish blood burns with genius and madness. 

We’ll take you down medieval streets, across majestic squares and through 1200 years of history. Like all of our famous tours worldwide we offer engaging storytelling that is both entertaining and informative!


*Average tour length. The Madrid Free Tour usually ends by Plaza de Isabel II (Metro Ópera). The independent guides with whom we work have your best interests in mind; while the tour usually includes the sites and stories above and lasts this long, your tour may vary depending on what your guide thinks is best for your group!
