Great
The tour through Madrid was very good! The Hungarian girl spoke perfect english, knew a lot, we could always ask any question and she was very nice. It was neither too fast, nor boring. I would do it again and recommend 100%.

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).

Interesting and lots of fun
Hi
We met at puerta del Sol (amazing place!) At 11. Lucia told us that 11 sharp means 11:15 in Spain, so no rush :)
People here really don't rush, life is less stressful in here. Or maybe was just the vacation mood dunno :)
Lucia took us to see the essential points of interest so the following days we knew exactly where to go and explore more.
Have your camera ready and your comfy shoes, you're in for a 3h walking tour. For us 9 to 5 corporate workers it was like running the marathon, but it's worth it. We had our 6y old with us, she made it as well :)
This tour was a really smart idea!

Free Walking Tour Madrid Essential
An excellent introduction to historic Madrid.
Not expecting much from a free walking tour, we were very pleasantly surprised with the very detailed, humorous and well planned tour.
With lots of information about the historic buildings in the center of Madrid provided as we walked along this should be on the must do list of every tourist to the Spanish capital.

Really good guided walk
Frank was a great guide. He made sure everyone got his attention. During the walk he would ask questions, which made the walk verry interesting and everyone payd attention during the whole trip. 3 hours is maybe a bit long..

Absolutely fabulous
Frank our guide was very knowledgeable and very considerate. It was a very hot day in Madrid on the day we did the tour and he always made sure there was shade and where possible a seat. Take a tour, you'll love it!!!

I had a great time and Sanya was fantastic. She showed me all the mysteries and I now know all the best tapas bars. Loved the pop up North African band we found!

Good!
Nice tour around a city center neighborhood, with a friendly and easy to understand tour guide. Tour concluded at a nice food market which would otherwise have went undiscovered. We were disappointed that we didn’t go into the Tobacco factory grounds to view the street art in there- I had read up there was a cafe etc. in there, perhaps it’s now all been closed off to the public.

It was cancelled as there weren’t 3 people.
Unfortunately it didn’t happen as I was the only one. If I had signed up with another group they still give the tour for one. Next time I will register with all the groups so that I improve my odds of going on the tour.
