Customer feedback about Cultural & History Tours in Madrid

Rating 4.8 based on 26 reviews

A most excellent person and guide
Paloma and I coordinated my visit several weeks before I arrived, so she was ready to go when I arrived. Paloma is both charming, gracious, and full of knowledge about Madrid. On more than one occasion she assisted w/ making reservations, and other logistics after my tour was over.

We found her restaurant and nightlife recommendations to be very useful in understanding and navigating Madrid. In short, without her involvement, this trip would have been less complete or enjoyable. Paloma is the best!

Perfect if you have 1 day to see Madrid
My sister and I only had one day in Madrid and wanted to see as much as we could. I found great reviews about Paloma online and she was available! She contacted me before we arrived to customize our day and gave us tips for the other cities we were going to visit. She even checked in on us later in the week. We got a real feel for the cited and history of Madrid and had plenty of time after the tour to shop, eat and see a few additional places. A+

I had an only one person tour with Paloma. She is very passionate about her job, so smiling and polite that makes you feel at your ease in the same way you re about to do a walk with a good friend. Then she explains you a lot of interesting curiosities about Madrid that you don t find in a guide: last but not least she suggest you places to enjoy Madrid such as restaurants and bars where spanish people use to go. Highly recommended!

Like spending a day with your friend who lives in Madrid!
Paloma is a loveley, bubbly woman who’s love for her city shines thru. This was a casual walking tour with plenty of information... if you’re looking for a stuffy structured tour this one might not be for you. IF you are looking for an experience more like coming to Madrid to spend a day with your friend who lives there.... Paloma is that friend. We had great conversation, saw so many things and laughed a lot. Thank you Paloma!

Great
Guide was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the city and all that it has to offer. My time with her was a 10 out of 10 and I highly recommend you do this excursion. In fact she went over her time to help me with something non related to the tour and did it as a nice person. A beautiful woman with a beautiful soul and I look forward to calling her a friend moving forward.

A Must-Do in Madrid
Paloma was a wonderful tour guide. The 6 hours flew by and were amazed by just how much we had seen. She was so helpful leading up to the tour giving tips. She even offered to book us at a flamenco show which we accepted and thoroughly enjoyed. It felt like we were touring with a friend. A must-do if you are planning to come to Madrid.

Very lucky to come across Paloma
Really pleased Paloma could show me around Madrid. She made me feel at home as I was travelling alone and was flexible with my tour requests. She helped me find some gems and although she didn't have to she sent me tips and advice on what to do when I was on my way. Great woman, very intelligent, very funny and a treat to meet.

Knowledgeable and Friendly
Paloma was the perfect guide for my one day layover in Madrid. Her love for this city comes through in her animated descriptions of its architecture, art, history, food, and people. I highly recommend her!

One Day with a Local Guide in Madrid
We loved this!
I booked this for myself, my husband and our 16-year old son and our Dutch friends, who also have a 16-year old son, and it was outstanding! Truly one of the highlights of our trip. Our Dutch friends loved the biking, as did we -- and we got to see streets and places that we might not have seen or visited. Javier is the "designer" of the route and he is a fantastic guy -- fun, knowledgeable, passionate about Madrid and a great guide. I would highly recommend this especially if you have teens who might want to be active and not visit one more museum and/or if people in your group have experience biking, good balance and would feel comfortable riding around a bustling city (although mostly side streets -- only a few times crossing really busy streets -- originally I thought this might even be fun for my parents but then realized absolutely not for my dad but my mom could do it because although she is older, she is an avid biker).

Great experience!
I cant give Paloma 10 stars, but if I could I would. This tour was a great tour. If you are short on time in the city of Madrid I highly recommend this tour. You will visit all the main sites and even some hidden treasures that only with Paloma I would have known about them. This tour also gives you a good insight for places you will want to visit at another time with more time. Paloma is very engaging and knowledgeable about her city, not to mention also very friendly and smart. Paloma was very helpful and is willing to give recommendations about places to check out after and restaurants. Whatever you need she the right person to ask and if she doesnt know, she will find the answer. Thank you very much Paloma for making our experience in Madrid the best!!
One Day with a Local Guide in Madrid
A most wonderful and interesting day
This is not a tour about facts and figures about Madrid. Although many of these are included. It is a day spent with Paloma who is passionate about her city, Full of wonderful stories and interesting places to see, she slowly becomes your best friend. I cannot not recommend her more highly for those that want a trip round her city with someone who loves to talk and tell you a bit of everything; We finished up having lunch with her feeling as though we really know her and her lovely city. Highly recommended for those that do not like formal tours. A great day and wonderful treat for Claire's birthday. Thank you Paloma.

Paloma was fabulous.
We had a one day walking tour with Paloma and her knowledge and passion for her home town was wonderful. Paloma not only showed us the big sights but also some wonderful small hidden gems and suggested other sights to see on our other days in Madrid and helped with restaurant suggestions and reservations. Amazing day with a local.

One Day with a Local Guide in Madrid
Awesome!
Paloma was amazing! She clearly knows her way around the city, and is a wiz at all things history related! She was a pleasure to spend the day with and it felt like more of a friend showing us the city, than a random tour guide. It was the best decision we made in Madrid by far. She is great!!
One Day with a Local Guide in Madrid
Great introduction to the city.
Our guide to Madrid, Paloma, was the greatest! She had a set tour but let us stop and explore the beautiful city of Madrid. She knew a lot of the rich history and had good tips on navigating the city. We would definitely use Like a Local for future vacations.

Flexible and Educated!
We know that you can get ‘free’ guides in Madrid, it’s worthwile the amount to get an experienced and educated guide like Paloma who really know about the history of Madrid! We had a lovely day and learned a lot. Superb with children! 👌

Fantastic and a very caring guide
Paloma was simply outstanding. She was very warm and is very good at her craft. She took care of details and was more of a friend than a guide. I would highly recommend her.
