We hired Madrid Cool and Cultural Private Tours to introduce us to Madrid for an afternoon and our guide, Teresa, was so outstanding that we hired her for another morning! She first took us to the Palace and the old town---her knowledge of history, art and culture was so in depth and gave us such a vivid sense of Spain... More

Gemma has good knowledge of the city and its history and explained it extremely well! We had alot of fun and was able to introduce my wife and daughter to more great... More

Our recent trip was made extra special thanks to Gemma! We spent our first afternoon with her on a walking tour of Madrid that was just perfect to begin with. She is a warm, friendly and intelligent person who is absolutely passionate about her work, art, and people! Our second tour was a day in Toledo. It was truly an... More

A guide has a big responsibility in his/her hands. Sometimes we are not aware of how important is the role of a tour guide. A guide makes magic. A guide can turn a place that apparently does not have any charm into a marvelous place, or can turn a strange work of art into a fascinating one. It just depends... More

We had two four-hour tours with Gemma in Madrid. We really enjoyed her company! She is a very friendly, thoughtful and lively person. We especially appreciated her deep knowledge and ability to convey information: she was able to pull out most important facts from enormous bank of information, clearly describe the context or background, and demonstrate connection with the present...

We did a full day walking tour with Gemma around the old city of Madrid and then finishing up with a couple of hours at Reine Sofia and Prado Museums. What really made the tour special was visiting some local places that a normal tourist probably wouldn't find their way into - it's not just about museums but getting a... More

My daughter and I spent the day with Gemma Garcia touring Madrid and had a great time. We couldn't have asked for a nicer or more knowledgeable tour guide. Gemma took the time to learn what we liked then catered the tour and where to stop based on our preferences. We visited some of the best locations that we would... More

We had the privilege to be introduced to Madrid by Teresa. She is a wonderful person and a great guide. Both the walking and the museums tours were perfectly adapted to our demands and curiosities. It was a joy to learn so much about the history and architecture of Madrid and about the spectacular works of art at the Prado... More

Gemma made us discover two amazing museums in Madrid from inside out. History, geography, art and history of art with passion, intelligence/knowledge and humour: the perfect approach to art and to history that everyone dreams of. But she also showed us parts of Madrid (rastros), that in principle tourists do not see, with a good list of addresses we can... More

Recently got back from a trip to Spain with my family which included just a few days in Madrid. Since we had a limited amount of time and had never been to Madrid we wanted to find a private tour that covered all the "must sees" but also provided details and facts on the often overlooked places in a city....
