Next, your Madrid walking tour will take you deep into the medieval streets of Central Madrid, stopping at jaw-dropping landmarks, like the Plaza Mayor (where they once burned heretics) and the Puerta del Sol, Madrid's Time Square. Your guide will tell you the story of this area and how it went from a Moorish outpost to the most powerful city in Europe. All our tours are run in English only, meaning you won't have to wait as the guide addresses both English and Spanish-speaking tour members and you'll have plenty of time to ask them questions.

There's one last surprise before you go: your guide will take you up to an exclusive rooftop terrace overlooking all of Central Madrid. From up there, they’ll point out landmarks and give you plenty of recommendations for what to see, do and eat during the rest of your stay.
