We were in Madrid in early November and had a fantastic experience with Madrid Cool & Culture. Gemma and Teresa were wonderful hosts who spent hours with us showing us the sights and sounds of the City. They also gave us tremendous recommendations for local restaurants. Best of all, they tolerated (and even complimented) my Spanish poetry! All in all... More

The manager sent us tips based on our named preferences before we arrived to Madrid. After the initial PayPal payment for the depositum, I got a receipt from the manager within an hour (!). Our guide, Maria C., was a lovely, professional flamenco-dancer with extensive travel-experience in general and of the city of Madrid in particular. Polite, professional, patient and... More

We had the pleasure of booking two private tours with Madrid Cool & Cultural in both Toledo and Madrid during our recent trip to Spain. Both tours were thoughtfully prepared and exceeded our expectations. Gemma met us at our hotel on the evening of our arrival and provided an overview of timing, itinerary, meeting times, etc. Her enthusiasm for Madrid... More

My personal day-long tour of Madrid led by Gemma García was truly fabulous. Highlights included enlightening visits to the Royal Tapestry Factory and the Prado Museum, with expert commentary by Gemma, a walk through the literary district, and a fantastic lunch at Restaurante TriCiclo. I highly recommend Gemma and MC&C and can't wait to return for another tour.
