5/5 Excellent into to Madrid
"Had an excellent Sandemans free walking tour of Madrid today, highlights definitely the Cathedral and Palace, plus seeing some of the eating options. Colin was a great guide, an excellent mix of history, stories and honour."
TripAdvisor, June 2016
5/5 Funny guide, great intro to Madrid
"We did the free walking tour with Jovan and it was excellent. He was ridiculously funny and knowledgable. He knows a lot about the history of Madrid and is well travelled, so it showed in the tour. I've done a lot of Sandemans tours and they are always consistently great, and today was no different. I would highly recommend this!"
TripAdvisor, June 2016

Connecting great guides with smart travelers

We believe in supporting our local communities and are committed to giving a voice to self-employed guides who have chosen Madrid as their home. By ensuring that every native English speaking guide represents our unique style of mixing history and story-telling while maintaining their own personality and flair, we’ve become one of the most popular tour companies in the world. Helping superb independent guides connect with thousands of travelers a day, we provide these local freelancers with the possibility to inform and entertain you, and they employ us to spread the news about this great concept.

How can a FREE Tour be one of the best in Europe?

The answer is simple: because the informed, entertaining, and unforgettable guides on our FREE Tours work on a tips-only basis, the highest quality is guaranteed! They’ll never pressure you to tip – even though the guides receive no other compensation from our company or the cities we work in. We believe that if money is given, it should be voluntary and in direct proportion to the quality of the tour and the budget of the traveler. Value for money goes a long way, and satisfied customers tip what they think the tour was worth!
Participation in tours promoted by SANDEMANs NEW Europe is strictly on a voluntary basis. Neither SANDEMANs NEW Europe, nor the self-employed freelance guides who are the providers of the tours promoted by SANDEMANs NEW Europe, will be held responsible in any way for injuries to body or property incurred during tours. The tour guides reserve the right to deny participation in any tour, to any person, for any reason. Thank you for your understanding.
