Do yourself a favor and book this bike tour! We were EXTREMELY lucky to have booked our tour on Madrid's annual Bicycle Day! What a thrill it was to join thousands of bikers, rollerbladers, and others riding up and down the main streets of Madrid including Gran Via. Kasper did a great job of incorporating the traditional "tour route" including... More

The tour guide was a friendly companion and knew a lot of interesting background stories about the sights. In 3hrs on the bike we got around the essentials of the city and drunk a typical hot chocolate. Only the reservation/ booking system is a little bit confusing. The information on the website is not really accurate: just an Email for... More

Just came back from a Madrid city bike tour conducted by Sebastian. Lovely city that means nothing without the right tour guide --- Sebastian was everything a perfect tour guide should be -- professional, courteous, informative and just plain friendly and nice as a person Overcast skies, an occasional drizzle and finally a shower at the end of the tour...

Many thanks for your kind commentary: it is gratifying to know that even if the circumstance of the Madrid weather being uncharacteristically damp, your spirits were kept alive and charged up by the very entertaining Sebastien. It seems like your expectations were met, even if not exceeded in all respects, so we hope we can count on you visiting us... More

Many thanks for your glowing commentary and recommendation. Your cycling friends in Austria should also know that we are happy to do the city route as a private tour for closed groups with the commentary in German. We only need a minimum of four participants for these, but that is ideal for families. Most other European languages are available. We... More

I found this a lovely way to spend a day seeing all the major sights of Madrid. I would definitely recommend this tour as an ice breaker to the city - I did it the day after I landed in Madrid so it was nice to get my head around where everything was in the city. Later on I revisited... More

We are so glad you enjoyed the tour and found it a good introduction to the city, and particularly having flown such a long distance to get here. With our tours our clients get to see city sites and curiosities which the tour buses cannot access and you really cover a lot more ground than you would if you had... More

My husband and I toured with Sebastian in early October, and we highly enjoyed the bike tour! The tour includes every key attraction in Madrid including: royal palace (external), major parks, major plazas, art galleries (external), and key neighborhoods. It was especially fun to bike down the major main street because it provided amazing views of the city sites (and... More

Easy to book, easy to find and a thoroughly enjoyable way to spend half a day in Madrid. A previous review suggested doing this at the beginning part of a visit to the city and I agree wholeheartedly - it's a great way to orient yourself with the area. That said, I deliberately booked the tour on a Monday because... More

Sebastian was wonderful. Gave us a beautiful tour full of historical facts and we saw all sighs in 3.5 hours of course from the outside. The architecture and history were fascinating as well as giving us tours of gardens and monuments. Best $ spent in Madrid. Highly recommend it!!

Thanks for your kind comment. We’ll always try to match the tour route to the interests of the participants in any tour, and if it's history and architecture you are into, well there's no shortage of those in Madrid. We would happy to show you more of that when you next visit Spain: it sounds like Segovia, El Escorial, Aranjuez... More

We booked a bike tour of Madrid with Bravo Bikes. It was one of my favorite things we did in Madrid. The bikes are nice, and you get a helmet and also a little pack on the bike with a water bottle and a place to put your keys, etc. Our leader was Casper who was thoughtful, nice and informative....

We are very pleased you had a good time on your tour, and thanks for providing such a detailed and enthusiastic summary. Well: if the tour goes on for a bit longer than expected, that’s a sure time that all participants are having a good time, which means the guide is getting good feedback, so he’s having a good time...
