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

Tour description

Imagine walking through the narrow streets of the historic center , immersing yourself in history and visiting emblematic places in Madrid.

During our guided tour we will embark on a journey through the fascinating history of Madrid; from its foundation in the Middle Ages, until the arrival of the Bourbon dynasty that transformed the city. All this accompanied by curiosities, interesting facts and legends that will make you discover Madrid like a true “Madrileneño”.

We are a 100% local company . Our team is made up exclusively of professional guides with extensive experience who enjoy sharing the history of Madrid and their favorite corners of the city.

In addition, we are the only Free Tour in Madrid that offers a radio guide system (the guide speaks into a microphone and the participants listen through headphones).
You don't have to worry about anything. We provide you with the radio guide system and disposable headphones.

Tour of the historic center:

  • Sun Gate
  • Comb Inn
  • Main Square
  • Oldest restaurant in the world
  • San Miguel Market
  • Village Square
  • Almudena Cathedral
  • Royal Palace
  • Plaza de Oriente
  • Royal Theatre


In order to guarantee the quality of our Free Tour:

  • We always offer small groups . This way participants can ask questions, photos, etc. making the experience much more enjoyable and entertaining.

  • Advantages of using radio guides :

    -Clear and crisp communication between the tour guide and the participants, even in parts where there is a lot of ambient noise such as the historic center of Madrid.

    -Participants can move freely without missing important information. They do not need to be close to the guide to hear the explanations, allowing for a more flexible and comfortable experience.

    -Accessibility for people with hearing disabilities, since our radio guide system allows you to adjust the volume according to individual needs.
