The best thing about our Madrid trip was the city tour with Jenny !!!

Thanks to Jenny we got a wonderful overview of the city of Madrid. It was super entertaining and very interesting. One can only warmly recommend this city tour, especially if this is your first time in the city. Jenny was able to answer all of the group's questions and gave each of them individual tips, be it about going to a restaurant, tapas bars, viewing opportunities, visiting museums or the area around Madrid. It was just great!

Amazing how Anne did the tour. Sympathetic, competent!

Great, fantastic tour in wonderful weather in mid-December. Anne designed the tour individually according to our wishes. We really liked her open and spontaneous manner, but also her great knowledge, which she passed on in a very humorous way. Predicate 'unique' and highly recommended! We were 4 adults. People from one family.

Tour was great, but not what was described in the app.

I booked using the app, which was simple. Then I got a call from the operator. They couldn't honor the time I had booked. The the tour we got was shorter and didn't cover everything listed on the app. Our guide was great and we still had fun, but there was a disconnect between what was in the app and what was actually available.

Segway Tour

I really enjoyed the tour. The organization was perfect and the guide took great care to get you safely across the city on a Segway. You should book 2.5 hours to see enough.
