About the tour

Come with us and dive into the roots of Madrid, from its settlement as a small Moorish town in the 9th century to its establishment in the 16th century as the capital of the biggest empire to date: The empire of the most powerful family in medieval Europe also known as the Habsburgs.

We will give you the keys of understanding modern-day Madrid through its history: An inclusive, cosmopolitan, welcoming, culturally-rich city full of contrasts. You will discover how it transformed from old, isolated and cold Castile, to an empire which conquered the seas. An empire so big that in the words of Phillip II: “The empire on which the sun never sets.”

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!
