What to expect

If you are planning to discover the best-known sights in Madrid and admire the architecture and elegance of the world-famous Royal Palace this is the tour for you. Get ready to experience a guided sightseeing tour of the Spanish capital city and a guided tour of the Royal Palace accompanied by a professional tour guide.

Madrid shows the multiple contrasts inherited through history. You'll find out about the medieval origins of the city such as the Arabic fortress, the Barrio de la Morería, characterized by the antiquity of its buildings and you'll also get a taste of its typical restaurants. You'll cover the Hapsburg Madrid of Felipe II, with its Renaissance and Baroque buildings walking and taking pictures of Calle Mayor, Plaza Mayor and Plaza de la Villa. Then, you will also see the Bourbon Madrid and the urban layout designed by Carlos III, the Royal Palace, the Cibeles Fountain, Neptune Fountain, and the Puerta de Alcalá. You'll visit the works from the kingdom of Joseph Bonaparte from the 19th century, like the Prado Museum. We will get to know contemporary Madrid on the streets of Gran Vía, Paseo de la Castellana, Barrio Salamanca, Plaza de Castilla, and Parque del Oeste, as well as the commercial and financial areas of Modern Madrid, like the emblematic Ventas Bullring or Santiago Bernabéu Stadium. During this tour, there will be a stop at the famous Hard Rock Café, where you will enjoy a free drink.

After the first part of the tour, the experience will continue with a guided visit to one of the most emblematic features in Madrid. The Royal Palace was built in the XVIII century upon the ancient Baroque Italian style fortress of the Habsburg. It is one of the most beautiful and best preserved palaces in Europe and a symbol of the permanence and consolidation of Madrid as the capital of the Kingdom. The Palace was the official residence of the Spanish Monarchy from 1765 to 1931. To date, the most stunning receptions of the Spanish Crown are celebrated here: audiences, dinner parties, the signature of agreements and the traditional ceremony of presentation of Credential Letters from foreign ambassadors to the King.
