Wat je gaat doen

The tour lasts between 2.5 and 3 hours. We will visit some very well known sites and also hidden gems. I try to go deeper in the history of Madrid to highlight the singularities, triumphs and failures that define the Spanish heritage, character, art, literature and culture. My goal is to explain what these historical sites mean and tell us about the city and the Spain of today. From the Islamic times and the early “Christian” Madrid, to the capital of an empire and then the struggles of the “Romantic Madrid” of the XVIII and XIX centuries that ended with the tragedy of the Civil War and the Franco regime. It’s a story with a happy ending with the arrival of democracy and fredom! I hope that at the end of the tour you will get to see some meaningful places, appreciate the personality of the city and its inhabitants and also have an overview on how Madrid and Spain became as it is, with its wonders and shadows.

I am a journalist in some of the best outlets of Spain. I also have published two novels (Dinámica de los cuerpos eléctricos, Taksim) and I have directed and award winning short film. I began deepening in the history of Madrid and its secret sites writing (and making photos) for an important newspaper. I also publish articles about cinema on a weekly basis. I was born and raced in Barcelona and after more tan 20 years living in Madrid, the city still surprises and fascinates me. I have traveled a lot in my life and I feel privileged to show this wonderful city to visitors.

Juan was really kind. He took his time explaining both the historical timelines of events that happened in particular locations, as well as the quirky, lesser known facts you wouldn’t get on a typical tour. He really knows his stuff when it comes to Madrid. And Juan as a person was super kind, answered any questions I had, and even assisted me with getting to my next destination after the tour when I wasn’t sure where to go. Highly recommended and definitely value for money.

Juan was a great tour guide! We were first timers to Madrid and did this tour on our first day. It was a perfect way to get a feel for the area. we did the hop on bus later that day, and it was such a disappointment. Don't waste your money unless you absolutely can't walk. Getting a personalized tour, with history and stories, from Juan a MUCH better way to see Madrid.

Juan knew a lot about the history of his city. He has plenty of information and knowledge beside his prepared tour. Could answer other questions about architecture and art easily without hesitation. Because Juan is such a passionate storyteller, he had our attention the whole 3H tour.

History is long and it is sometimes difficult to find a thread to connect it all together. Like many European cities, Madrid has more history in five square blocks than my native country does from end to end. Juan is an engaging story-teller and he makes a strong attempt to make sense of it all.

Juan is a wonderful journalist and an awesome guide. I learned a lot about Madrid and its history, architecture, and people in 3 hours. We were only 2 guests in the tour but he didn't cancel it, so I really appreciate that. I highly recommend this experience!
