Hello! We are Javier and Tatiana. After a wide variety of experience in different companies, in 2013 we decided to found OgoTours, a guided tour company based in Madrid. Specializing in a destination like Madrid doesn’t happen overnight, it requires years of study, preparation and effort. However, today this specialization is our main strength compared to other companies in Madrid. Currently our team of guides is composed of professionals from different fields (Art History, Tourism, History, etc.) who love sharing their favorite places in Madrid. As if this were not enough, our small family run business has grown over these years to become one of the top-rated tour companies in Madrid. Webistes such as TripAdvisor, Yelp as well as numerous travel blogs and specialized press recommend us as the best way to discover Madrid. As a 100% local company, we keep a close relationship with the city. We only collaborate with small Madrid businesses and try to show our city from a local and authentic perspective. In short, the passion for our city and the possibility of continuing to learn make this work the best one in the world. Looking forward to seeing you in Madrid, Javier & Tatiana
