As City tours go much was missing from the commentary and the route going up and down the same street is somewhat ludicrous. It does give you your bearings and is a tourist thing to do. We always try a city tour even if it's...More

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a

side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
