Hi there! I am Elena, I came to Madrid 5 years ago to study an MBA and I fell totally in love with this city, its streets, its sunsets, and its traditions.

Organización y comunicación pésima. Tenía muchas espectativas en este tour y al final me quedé sin poderlo hacer. Me facilitaron el contacto de una anfitriona errónea, el anfitrión que se presentó al lugar se fue con otra pareja y nos quedamos sin tour y habiendo perdido una hora para encontrar una solución. Ni una disculpa y aún estoy esperando el reembolso del dinero

My guide for this tour was Maria, and she was wonderful! I was the only one on the tour, and it felt more like I was strolling around the beautiful Justicia and Chueca neighborhoods with a friend. I really liked Maria’s recommendations, and I’ve since returned to several of the shops and cafés she pointed out. Great way to spend an afternoon in Madrid!

Loved this experience. My host was Maria she was super friendly and made me feel at ease. She took me to the hip areas in Madrid, we walked around visited local shops where you find authentic locally made products we visited a very interesting museum and art galleries. overall I really enjoyed my time and took a lot of nice pictures. I wouldn’t have thought of going to this area or seeing all the nice things I’ve seen if it wasn’t for this Experience. It was nice to discover areas and places where local people go and that are not very touristy. Had a great time and highly recommend this experience!

Πολύ όμορφη και καλά οργανωμένη εμπειρία με απόλυτη προσαρμογή σε εμάς και την κόρη μας. Η Έλενα φανταστική και άνετη μας ξενάγησε σε γωνιές της πόλης και μας έκανε να νιώσουμε για λίγο τη μαγεία του να ζεις εκεί.
