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

About the Tour

Imagine walking through the narrow streets of the old town, immersing yourself in history and getting to know emblematic places of the capital such as the Plaza Mayor, the Royal Palace or the Plaza de la Villa.


During our guided tour we will embark on a journey through the fascinating history of Madrid; from its foundation in the Middle Ages or the Inquisition, 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 as a true “Madrileño”.

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 its favorite corners of the city.

IMPORTANT! To guarantee the quality of our service, in our free tour we always offer small groups. In this way the participants can listen to the guide without problem, ask questions, photos, etc. making the experience much more enjoyable and entertaining. For this reason, it is important to book as far in advance as possible to avoid availability problems, especially during the weekend.

This was a fun, wholesome and informative tour. Tatiana took us around the city while telling us the story behind different monuments/markets which I really liked because after 2.5 hours I knew fun facts about Spanish monarchy but also where I had to go for good Tapas :)
