Great Private Tour of Madrid & Toledo
Apr 2018 • Couples
My wife and I booked a 2-day tour of Madrid and Toledo for our most recent visit to Spain. We were recommended Madrid & You as a great option, and it truly was a fantastic visit. We booked and communicated with Diego over email and tailored our visit to our specific needs. He did a great job of answering questions, and was very responsive even after the tour was booked. Our guide for both Madrid and Toledo was Moises. He was great! His knowledge of both cities and the beautiful artwork in the Prado museum made the trip and tour so informative. His english was excellent and was very attentive to all of our needs. I highly recommend this tour company for anyone looking for a more tailored and personalized trip to Madrid.

Excellent walking tour of Madrid with Diego !
Dec 2017
Excellent walking tour with Diego- we learned so much about the Madrid culture and history. My teenagers found Diego interesting and engaging. He kept us all on our toes and thinking about the history of Spain in the world scene. We learned a lot about the current Madrid situations and what is happening with the current people of Madrid and Spain.

Excellent walking tour of Madrid with Diego!
Dec 2017 • Family
We booked a 3 hour walking tour with Diego for Christmas Day so everything was closed but we managed to feel like we saw a lot and got to know Madrid even with the city being quiet. He gave us a feel for the neighborhoods and a feel for what the Madrid people are like. He managed to keep my teenagers engaged which is not an easy task and he got us a reservation at a great restaurant to enjoy a typical spanish meal on Christmas Day. Thanks so much Diego!!

Great walking tour of Madrid with Diego!
Jun 2017 • Friends
We just spent three hours walking through Madrid with the most wonderful guide Diego. He met us promptly at our Airbnb and from the moment he arrived he felt like a member of our party. He waked us through some amazing neighborhoods and the tour highlighted the many different areas of Madrid. He sat with us at the end and showed us on a map where we had been. He was full of recommendations and helped us make a dinner reservation at Bar Galetta that was outstanding. I would highly recommend Madrid and you and the services of Diego.

Best guided tour in Madrid - also for business groups / corporate events
Feb 2017 • Business
We were a group of 30 People attending a Microsoft Event in Madrid and really wanted an entertaining, engaging, informative tour in Madrid and Diego exceeded all our expectations. We were amazed by his Knowledge and engaging way how to interact with all of us and we thoroughly enjoyed the Walking tour in the evening when he showed us "Madrid of the Habsburgs".

In Addition, the preparation for this Event was hugely professional and very swift! It was like saying goodbye to a friend when we parted and we are sending the warmest regards and huge appreciation for being able to spend time with Diego last evening!

Great Local Experience
Nov 2016 • Couples
My boyfriend and I toured with Diego when we were in Madrid two weeks ago and it felt like we were visiting a friend who was passionate and knowledgeable about the city. He took us to neighborhoods we may not have otherwise ventured to to show us local markets and share details of the architecture in each place. He was able to discuss both historical and contemporary issues in the city, and we walked away with a broad knowledge of Madrid, past and present without feeling like we were being fed facts. Overall it was a great morning!

We received incredible service throughout the entire process. Diego was very helpful and the group was flexible as our travel arrangements were delayed repeatedly. Communication was fast and helpful throughout and we were able to set up a fabulous tour that met all of our needs. Moises was an amazing tour guide. He gave us many option on what we would like to do and see and was very knowledgeable. He was also great about suggesting locations for pictures and taking pictures of the group. He was very patient with all of our questions and was able to suggest places for us to eat and visit once the tour was over. This really was the best part of what an awesome visit to Madrid.

Insightful tour of Madrid
Apr 2016 • Couples
Celebrating my Mothers Birthday, we wanted to do a private tour of Madrid and contacted Madrid and You. It was very easy communicating with them and nothing was a problem... Well, our excellent guide Moises had not received all the information communicated from me beforehand, but it was not a big deal, we had a great day in Madrid both on foot and by car, as we wanted to see areas a little further from "our" area. Moises knows it all, and is very easy to be around, so no complains !

Fantastic walking tour of Madrid
Mar 2016 • Family
My wife, 21 yr old daughter and I met Moises Zapata at our hotel and he proceeded to walk us through the wonderful old parts of Madrid. He was so insightful and easy to spend four hours learning the history and layout of Madrid. I would highly recommend this tour and to top it all, he recommended one of the best restaurants we have eaten at so far. Worth the time and money. Thanks Moises

Great guide - excellent orientation to Madrid
Dec 2015
We booked a private tour to get us oriented to the city once arrived from our overnight flight. Moises met us at our hotel and was very considerate of our jetlag and our interests in getting our bearings while learning some history and a general plan for what we should do while in town. We walked to all the main highlights and neighborhoods of the city, popped into a few museums around the park, and got great tips before getting us situated on the subway to get back to our hotel. He really set us up well to enjoy our time in Madrid - he is very knowledgeable and enjoyable to spend the day with.
