Andrea was a friendly, fun and informative guide. We learned so much about the interesting neighborhoods of Madrid, customs, restaurants and markets. Tastings were delicious- chocolate and churros, chorizo and cheeses, bread and pheasant pâté, nun-made cookies, wines and cava.

Thank you for this wonderful review! We are so happy to read the great experience you had during our Local neighborhoods & Gourmet Tapas experience! Andrea is a great guide: professional, full of local knowledge and with a great sense of humor! She knows how to transmit information without being boring. The itinerary was designed to cover the historical icons of Madrid and local neighborhoods, stopping in traditional places such as San Gines but also, supporting family businesses as the ones we stop by in the Markets. We are glad to read how much you enjoyed! Thank you for recommending us to everyone travelling to Madrid!

We totally enjoyed tour and insights into Madrid. Andrea was excellent and very genuine. We loved the overview of Madrid, the plazas we visited, the markets, the oils, the wines, the simple food and particularly the off-the street hidden gems.

Wow! Thank you! Thank you for such detailed feedback. We are happy to read the incredible experience you had with Daniela! Also, it's fantastic to read the friendships that came out of the tour with local vendors such as Dani from the market. All the people we collaborate with, they are experts and love to show you the products and if you notice, when you show a bit of interest... you can spend the entire day listening to them! Thank you again for such an amazing feedback and well, looking forward to meeting you again! Regards from the entire team of Urban Adventures in Madrid!
