My husband and I took our 3 daughters to Madrid for a fun and interesting family vacation. It is a delicate balance to merge touring a historical city with the fun and adventure 3 preteen/teen girls truly seek. Gemma made that happen for us. To start, she has an engaging personality liked by all members of our family. She gave... More

For my first full day in Madrid, I was looking for a private, customized tour with an engaging, creative tour guide to experience street life, local culture, and the Prado Museum. That was Gemma! So, instead of touring interior sites, we wandered through quaint, historic neighborhoods, visited a local market with colorful food displays, nibbled on tapas and other delicious... More

Essential Madrid, 2 half days to museums, day trip to Toledo and day trip to Segovia. Each and every tour was awesome! We met Gemma,... More

We took a tour around the city of Toledo, in Spain, with Madrid Cool & Cultural, and enjoyed both the city and the guide who showed us around, Daniel. He told us about the history of a wonderful city and we learned a lot from his great knowledge about everything that has happened in Toledo for many centuries ago. He... More

We booked a full day tour in Madrid, which included spending the morning at the Prado Museum. Our guide, Teresa, was fabulous and incredibly knowledgable. But it was her enthusiasm and passion that made our day memorable. Her stories were interesting and her enthusiasm infectious. Expensive, but worth every Euro!!
