I've used guides in many European cities for museums to help fill in the history and provide context around the museum and the artworks. Meg was responsive, helpful and friendly in setting up a guide for us.

Botin tour was really fun & worth having a look around the whole place. We even got to see the wine cellar, no longer in use. (Flooded in 1982 from heavy rain, not from river - Now too musty to use). The guide, Philip, is...More
What a fantastic experience! Phil our guide was brilliant regaling the history of this wonderful restaurant and showing us all the nooks and crannies. Won't go into too much detail as it really is a discovery type experience. Heads up the meal is HUGE! We...More

Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to
the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighbourhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.

Dear Givara888, thank you for your question! The historic centre is compact enough for you to see enough in one morning. We would suggest a walk through the old centre, combining the main sights with a step behind closed doors to meet people and places that are also part of Madrid; a centenary sweet shop, one of the world's best known luthiers for the Spanish classical and flamenco guitar, the world's only Spanish cape shop are examples! While I talk about our own guiding service in Madrid, I am sure you will find some more answers of who to contact in the activities section of tours on TA. Best regards, Joanna
