What you'll do

Our tour is ideal for everyone who wants to get to know Madrid in a short time but in a relaxed way. In about 3 hours and 12 km biking, you will more or less see and hear everything of the old center while riding a very comfortable bicycle. The “must see” places as well as the hidden corners away from the typical touristic paths.

We will ride mainly on cycling paths, pedestrian zones and parks. Of course there will be various stops to take pictures and there will be a break to have a drink.
When we stop, we will tell you about the stories behind what you see and tell our personal experiences of our time in Madrid.

After the tour you have an idea which places you want to visit in your own time and in which restaurants and tapas bars you want to have your meal.
You are inspired for the rest of your time in Madrid.

We kan also offer you private tours (custom tour) in many languages; English, Dutch, French, German and Spanish.
Other things to note
Children from an age of 7 years are welcome. Also we have children seats for 0-20 kg.
The total tour is about 3 hours. This tour requires experience with biking in the city.
If not, Ask for the availability of an electric bike, additional costs € 10.

We really enjoyed Michel’s bike tour! It was a really enjoyable way to explore the city and learn more about different aspects of Madrid and it’s history. The bikes were brand new and very comfortable. Helmets are available on request and he also included a bottle of water for each person. He is very knowledgeable about the different monuments and areas of the city where he took us. This tour will really give you a better idea of how to visit the city on your own. We saw plazas and neighborhoods that we never would have discovered without Michel’s tour. He was also super accommodating with our last minute booking and he was super responsive to messages. Thanks Michel for sharing your afternoon with us, it was a lovely experience. Also, Michel has an Airbnb property in Plaza Mayor that we were able to tour. It is an amazing space in an amazing location so I would highly recommend that as well!

Michel is a very friendly tour guide, great at interacting, with a wealth of knowledge of Madrid, as well as Spanish history generally. He mixed telling us about big events as well as anecdotes about Madrid. The bikes were excellent, very comfortable, & well suited to city biking.

Fun and interesting way to tour Madrid that definitely makes you feel more part of the city than simply walking around. Michel was super nice and I was really happy he still conducted the tour even though there was only 2 of us being toured!

J'ai beaucoup aimé ce tour de Madrid a velo avec Michel ! Cela permet d'avoir un aperçu des endroits les plus connus avec, en bonus, des explications historiques. Très interessant ! Michel est très agrèable et très arrangeant (J'ai dù reporter 2 fois et il a été très flexible) ! Le tour se fait en toute sécurité a velo ! On a même le temps de prendre un verre chaleureux tous ensemble. Je recommande !

It was a cool way to explore Madrid. Especially now because there are no hop on hop off busses and it is an easy to find treasures in the city while also maintaining distance through the bikes which is favorable during corona times. We can recommend :)
