We have done a lot of city bike tours, and this was just an average experience. Biking is a great way to explore the city, but the group was to big and the guide was just average. I suppose the guide had a lot of knowledge, but it was hard to hear what he was talking about. Baja Bikes is... More

I wanted to choose something very special to do on my birthday, on 21 September 2014, so I chose to go on a bike tour in Madrid. I found Baja Bikes and I did extremely well by doing that. The guide "Jose" is a very nice guy, and he explained all the most important tourist attractions. On the internet it... More

I cycle quite a bit but this was my first bike tour of a major city. I found it a great way to get into the quieter streets and squares that are dotted around the older parts of the city, many of which do not have car access. We seemed to cover all the major sights and many, many relatively... More

Booked a tour for my husband and myself our first day in madrid and it was definitely a highlight of our trip. We were lucky in that there were only two others on our tour, possibly due to the weather, but even a little rain did not detract from the experience. Our guide, Yop was brilliant! Extremely knowledgeable about the... More

My son (11) and I had a really good time riding around Madrid on this tour. We had just arrived in Madrid for the first time and it was a really good way to get our bearings. The guide was friendly and interesting. We used quiet roads and a couple of trips through parks. We hadn't done a bicycle tour... More

Really great way to see Madrid and get your bearings. We travelled around mostly quiet back streets with a guide who could tell historical tales at various stopping points. We also stopped for a drink (price included ) and got a chance to chat and refuel. Some of the hills are a bit steep and cobbled streets a bit of... More

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Centro
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 collection of plazas interconnected by a network of 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 desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
