ABOUT Madrid

Discover the many faces of Madrid with a passionate local guide

From the capital of the world’s largest empire, to the dark heart of the Spanish Inquisition, today this beautiful cosmopolitan city is home of culture, nightlife, and an energy that you can feel as soon as you arrive. Join us to see this extraordinary city through the eyes of Madrid’s best local tour guides.

The original Free Tour of Madrid starts at Plaza Mayor, and covers many of Madrid’s top attractions, including the Royal Palace and the Almudena Cathedral. After you’ve got the overview with the free walking tour, delve deeper with us!

The Majestic Madrid Tour will give you an overview of Madrid’s literary history, as well as taking you to the Golden Triangle of Art. After you’ve experience the enlightened Madrid, learn about the dark side with the Spanish Inquisition Tour, to date one of the darkest periods of European history.

With all that walking, you’ll be getting hungry, and if you’re looking for a food tour, our Tapas Tour will take you to incredible traditional tapas bars. And why not combine it with a breathtaking flamenco show with our Spanish Experience?

One thing’s for sure; the top things to do and see in Madrid can all be found on a SANDEMANs tour!
