The guide was more than pleasant and I would certainly recommend him. He was humorous, with a bit of theatrical play, and willing to help us learn Madrid.

I took the free walking tour and the majestic tour, visiting the western and eastern downtown areas. Both guides were amazing! I'm sorry that I forgot their names! Thanks to the stories we learned from the former tour, we were able to make the most to our visit to El Prado later on the very same day. The following day... More

Really enthusiastic and friendly guide gave great information about the city. Good way to get the lay if the land and decide what's worth going back to in order to spend more time. Probably not wholly accessible for someone with mobility issues.

Did this tour with Ramon as our guide and he did a wonderful job pointing out places of interest and coloring the tour with stories of Madrid's history. Would absolutely recommend to anyone whether you've been to Madrid before or not

This was my first time joining Sandeman walking tour on my first day in Madrid. Excellent introduction to the city of Madrid and our guide Fabrizio was witty and knowlegable. I look forward in joining another Sandeman walking tour again in another city. Thank you.

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
