Having had a great cycle tour of Barcelona only a few days before, we were worried that this wouldn't measure up. We were wrong. Our tour guide, Gaiza, was friendly, knowledgeable and good humoured. His grasp of Spanish and other history made us feel we could know a lot more ourselves! Always interesting, enthusiastic and looking out for our safety... More

I was a little hesitant to sign up for the tour, as I was the only one in my travel group interested in cycling, but I arrived at the shop and was put in a group of about a dozen cyclists of varying ages and abilities. I thoroughly enjoyed the 3+ hour tour around central Madrid. The most difficult part... More

The riding tour took around 2.5 - 3 hours, we visited many main spots in an easy riding rhythm, went through trails and pathways to see the hidden side of the city. Tour guide is very charming wit and humor, not just introduced the views but also told us related stories, histories, or recommended where to go shopping or dining.... More

The bike tour was fabulous. I'm a strong rider, but my companion is a very beginniner. Both of us thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The guide was attentive to our needs, filled with fun facts. We stopped often for short tour info, and then cycled on. We weaved through the city effortlessly and were well taken care of. Highly recommend.

Myself, wife and three teenage kids had an unexpected 36 hours in Madrid (due to cancelled flights!)....what a bonus! We took this three hour tour. I cannot recommend this highly enough....interesting, fun, educational and our tour guide - Gisa - was an exceptionally good guide and an even better human being. A more positive, informed, considerate person you could not... More

I arrived in Madrid for an extended (months) stay for business. The very first Sabado I took the Madrid Highlights Tour in the hopes of getting a quick orientation of the city and see the great sites. The tour definitely accomplished what I hoped. The only oddity was that the store front does not say Baja Bikes, it is another... More

We liked the tour very much, it was not only the great opportunity to see the city, but also a great chats with the guide and other participants. I think we even had a longer trip than it was expected - 3.5 hours with a nice break in the park. Maybe we talked too much ))

Bajabikes doesn't actually give any tours, they just subcontract the tours. The reason why I give this company low stars is because they claimed to have been the ones giving the tour but when we showed up to the location it turned out that TRIXIE BIKES is the company that does the tours. The tour given by Trixie tours turned... 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.
