We have paid euro 21 each to join the Madrit City Tour. It was not as interesting as other city tours we have recently taken in Berlin or Viena. The speaker socket by my seat did not work, the comments were mostly not of much interest to the tourist. I can not recommend, unfortunately.

Stops are difficult to find, In some case we could not find the sign. Had to rely on observation and catch the next bus. We were in low season and some of the buses where filled. Had to wait for the next one, especially on Sunday. Looks like there are a lot of streets closed on Sunday. Like the one... More

We wanted to cover a lot of ground and see the main sites of the city AND get information on what we were seeing. The bus had a good route, but the recorded English commentary was extremely dull. Lots of notes on architecture, very little on history or significance. All of it was read with little to no enthusiasm. I... More

There 2 main routes and the cover all the major tourist attractions. The commentary is also good. Although bare in mind that the bus does not take you close to Gaudi park as it's on a hill top. You have to walk all the way to it.

This tour is a MUST DO if you are interested in combining history with food. We had the best guide, Andreis, who was a font of knowledge about Madrid history. The tour lasted 2 1/2 hours and we walked at a slow pace through Madrid Old Town and in between visited some Tapas Bars and sampled delicious foods and wines/ports.... More

This Madrid bus tour was good for our family, which can't walk that far and wanted to reduce the money spent on taxis. They had deep discounts for seniors and friendly staff. The commentary was available in a dozen languages, which was impressive, but we were disappointed that it focussed overwhelmingly on architecture and very little on history or other... More

I was one day in Madrid. the city tours are a good way to see the most of the city. but it is not so easy to find the bus stops once you go down. so in the end I was walking all Madrid. you also can use the metro. very easy to get from a place to place.

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
