Marta, our guide for 3 hours of El Prado was supremely knowledgeable about the paintings and history of Madrid. Her enthusiasm and knowledge brought the paintings she chose to highlight for us alive and made the whole experience hugely enjoyable and memorable. It was our decision to let Marta lead the choices of artwork and we have no regrets. Having done various private tours in different countries we were blown away by Marta and grateful to her for making our trip to El Prado one we will not forget.

That is great news! We are glad we could help improve your experience in Madrid. It is a great city for many things, but especially for students, I am sure you have already discovered that. Feel free to reach out if you need any further advice, our team of local native guides is here to help with recommendations of any sort! Enjoy and keep cool this Summer, it gets hot in August and some neighbourhoods convert into ghost cities as everyone goes to the beeeeach!

I was in Spain for an English Immersion program where I had two days to tour in Madrid. I had read many reviews on MadSnail Travel Tours and knew it would be the right fit for me. Enrique was my guide for two days he was an amazing tour guide! The first day was filled with the detailed history of Madrid. We walked viewing many varieties of architecture through many time periods. Spain's monarchical dynasties shifted as did its architecture so the styles of Romanesque, Moorish, Italianate Baroque, neo-Gothic to Modern were blended through out the city! Beautiful structural movement and such a contrast as they stand so very close to one another. The second day was touring the Prado Museum where Enrique was as knowledgeable with the art as he was with Madrid’s history. I would recommend this tour for anyone who wants a true tour of the city and a guide who is flexible as to what your interests may be! Thank you for a wonderful and interesting tour Enrique!!

What a great introduction to Madrid!!
Enrique was a wonderful guide. We learned about the history of Spain while visiting the Royal Palace. His passion for the city and what it has to offer is infectious. He has incredible knowledge of what’s authentic and what’s touristy. We went to the Mercado La Cebada and had a most delicious omelette. He knows everyone at the market. We stopped at a Bar and tasted some delicious wine and tasty Tapas.
This is definitely the way to see the city. Highly recommend.
We are definitely returning and doing more of his tours.
