About the guru Fernando

Hello travelers. I am Fernando, Madrileño, Bachelor of Sociology. Human Resources and Training Technician. A lover of my city and I have always enjoyed showing it to those who come to visit it or want to know more about it. I have lived for 20 years in the central area of Madrid so I know it, I visit it and I enjoy it daily. So I love to share it with others.

About the tour

We will take a walk through the historic center of Madrid, from its origins, its oldest buildings, walking through the known as the Austrias neighborhood. Although we will pass through the main tourist spots in the area: Plaza de la Villa Plaza de Oriente Puerta del Sol Plaza Mayor Above all we will walk through more hidden streets and stop at squares and lesser-known places to enjoy the originalities that make them special. We will discover some surprises that hide the route, the reasons for the original idiosyncrasy and personality of the inhabitants of Madrid: open and welcoming. And of course we will visit and recommend some of the main areas of bars, inns and terraces of the center, routes of the famous "tapas" Madrid.

Muy recomendable, un recorrido muy interesante para saber la historia sobre el origen de Madrid. El recorrido ha sido cómodo, divertido, ni largo ni corto y con paradas bien calculadas. A pesar de que era un día muy caluroso se ha hecho muy ameno.
