About the tour

In the late 1800's it was decided Madrid needed to upgrade to the standards of a Capital. New developments and city planning was made, ending in a spectacular new extension on what today is part of the heart of the city. Join your guide Jorge as he takes you on a historical walk around Madrid's centre!


Meet your local guide

Jorge

Jorge was born and raised in Málaga, Andalucía, Spain. He has worked in the tour guiding industry for the last 24 years. Moved to Madrid in 1990 and a few years after, almost by accident, started from the lowest level in this field. His passion is to transmit his feelings about this wonderful city to anyone, the same way he would like to be treated: like showing to a friend his city of adoption. Málaga is always in his heart, Madrid is in his soul forever.

Jorge has been guiding since Mar 1997


What to expect

Get ready for something special. We're travelling to Madrid with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you'll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing guide.

The tour will last about 45 mins and will be live-streamed by your guide directly from Madrid. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!

While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your guide and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.


Why are they tip-supported?

We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to book and join, but you have the option to tip the guide during the tour.

Leaving a tip will help support the guides and allow us to offer tours in more places around the world. If you aren't able to leave a tip, then it would be great if you can share the tour with friends and family to spread the word.

An expert tour guide with a wealth of knowledge about his city. His tours are detailed and interesting with a huge amount of information given in a very engaging manner. He'es very considerate of his guests at home always ensuring we have enough time for postcards and extra questions. He is also considerate to take them time to allow us to orientate ourselves by showing where we've been on the tour allowing us to feel like we're really there
