Description

Join local guide Lexi to uncover the secrets and history of one of Europe's most exciting, yet misunderstood cities. Take in the beautiful views while listening to the exciting stories and immersing yourself some wild history. We'll meet next to the Fountain of Orpheus in Plaza de la Provincia which is just a stone's throw away from the glorious Plaza Mayor, a spacious square that is brimming with history and where you can see the bronze statue of King Philip III. We'll walk through the charming streets of the old town to see the sights and discover the secrets of a city that stands in the middle of nowhere, miles from its neighbors and travel back in time together as you hear the history that shaped the city. Learn how to eat like a local as your guide shares food and drink traditions. Try to solve some local mysteries like: Why did people avoid Plaza Mayor for decades?, Which monument made the whole city gasp? Was the most defining 'accident' of Madrid's story actually a well planned crime? Spend a fun couple of hours falling in love with Madrid and getting recommendations from your new local friend before ending the tour near the Royal Palace.
