Tour Details

Madrid is Spain's capital, largest city, and one of Europe's most historic cities. Eager tourists marvel at Madrid's beautiful architecture, fascinating history, and magnificent attractions. On this tour of Madrid, get ready to explore Madrid's many layers of history. You will visit many of Madrid's highlights, including the majestic Royal Palace of Madrid.

Begin your Madrid tour by traveling back in time to the medieval period, when this Spanish city was once an Arab fortress. You will see the city's most ancient buildings and smell the inviting aroma of numerous taverns. Admire the beautiful Renaissance architecture and intricately designed Baroque buildings as you travel through the courtesan district of the Hapsburgs. Your Madrid city tour will then bring you to Independence Square, where you will find the remarkable Neo-classical monument Puerta de Alcala. Visit Madrid's famous Cibeles and Neptuno Fountains. Nearby you will see the world - the majestic Retiro Park and the famous Prado Museum. Next you will venture into modern Madrid and to explore sites such as the Santiago Bernabeu Football Stadium, Gran Via, Plaza de Castilla, Plaza Mayor, Parque del Oeste, and Madrid's own Egyptian temple, the Temple of Debod. This awe-inspiring monument was a gift from Egypt for Spain's assistance with relocating Abu Simbel, a large temple complex which would have been flooded after the construction of Aswan High Dam. You will also stop at the Hard Rock Cafe, where you can enjoy a refreshing drink before continuing on to the Royal Palace.

Of course, you can't spend time in Spain's capital without seeing the Royal Palace of Madrid. Tour this regal 18th century palace, which was the official residence of the Spanish Monarchy from 1765 to 1931. The palace is stunning on both the outside and the inside, with its beautiful gardens and richly decorated rooms. To date, the most stunning receptions of the Spanish Crown are celebrated here: audiences, dinner parties, signature of agreements, and the traditional ceremony of presentation of Credential Letters from foreign ambassadors to His Majesty the King. You don't want to miss out on this professionally guided tour of Madrid's most sensational attractions.
