My husband and i did the Prado/Madrid walking tour with Pablo. He was outstanding. Pablo's background is in art history. He gave us insight into certain works that we never would have understood from a museum audio tour . In addition, Pablo provided us with restaurant choices and helped us to map out the rest of our stay.

Inside Madrid organised The Botin Experience for us. The knowledge of the guide was exemplary and it certainly made the visit very memorable. He was very personable without being too friendly. We ended up inviting him to eat with us. IM was efficient and kept us informed at every stage. Would not hesitate to use them again.

Joanna was absolutely fantastic in supporting us with our annual Group Event. She organised a great team activity for us (a group of about 70 people) in Madrid, where we had to build our own F1 car and drive it. We then went to a lovely restaurant in the centre of Madrid, where everything was personalised for us, and every... More

We really enjoyed our tours with Gaetan in Madrid and Juanjo in Toledo. They were both friendly and knowledgeable and gave us wonderful insight and history into these lovely cities. I especially appreciate that the tours were arranged during the New Year holiday and the response time from Margaret in setting up the tours was very quick. I have taken... More

Dear Rhonda, thank you so much for taking the time to write a review on Trip Advisor and also for your constructive comment on having enough cash for those entrances who do not take cards. We will be sure to mention this to future guests and also reconfirm the increased price of a panoramic taxi journey that you took. Many... More

We booked the tour and dinner of El Botin. We were met outside by Phil (from Manchester) who was such an engaging and friendly guide we felt that we were being taken around by a friend. He told us about the history of the restaurant, its geographical position in old Madrid and took us on a 50 minute tour of... More

Insider's Madrid has helped us plan wonderful activities for small and large groups alike. We enjoyed a very unique experience taking Flamenco lessons from Christian and he was amazing! One hour well spent and we were left wanting for more. Insider's Madrid also helped organize a 3 hour walking tour with a local guide - Sean who had a lot... More

I emailed Joanne once our trip was set and she responded quickly with her suggestions. We met David ( El Australiano ) in Plaza Santa Ana and off we went. His warm personality and great sense of humour immediately put us at ease. We felt like we were walking with an old friend showing us all the best things about... More

We had an incredible day touring El Prado and Reina Sofia with our guide Pablo. Prior to arriving in Madrid, Joanna worked out several tours for us during our stay. We were traveling with two of our children (ages 13 and 18) to visit our oldest son who is studying in Madrid. Pablo spent 4 hours with us, between the... More

Joanna organised a great wine tasting for our corporate group of 15 people, in Madrid on a team building weekend. Jaime, the sommelier, was entertaining, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Joanna was also on hand throughout the event to make sure everything ran smoothly. We tried some lovely wines and nibbles, and soaked up the atmosphere in a small, authentic bar. I... More

Staying in Malasana

Neighborhood Profile
Malasana
Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighborhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
