This was a great introduction to Spain, Gemma first gave us an briefing on the visit and a background about the City and Alicia showed us to the great spots in old Madrid. We had nice discussions and whenever there was anything interesting she would without hesitation bring us out of the regular route, like the Oriental room in the... More

I contacted Madrid Cool and Cultural based on their reviews and I am glad I did. From the get-go, Gemma was clearly someone reliable and knowledgeable. She replied to my emails promptly and with clarity. I was travelling with my sister and a niece, and while it was a first trip to Madrid for my niece, my sister and I... More

I have travelled frequently and always have tours at each destination. The tour with Gemma was truly the most interesting, the most fun, and the most well versed making all the other tours I've had seem less significant. She has an upbeat personality, is very gracious, and is extremely knowledgeable about the city she loves......Madrid. We had a walking tour... More

Gemma took my family and me on a great tour around Madrid. We learned a lot about the culture and history that we wouldn't have otherwise. Gemma also took us to places that we would never have found on our own (a cool wine bar and some interesting alleys and sights). My mom (who had never been to Spain) had... More

I worked as a planner for an American couple, who did a tour around Europe, and booked Gemma to be their guide in Madrid. She was very professional from the beginning - quick in responding to my emails and very flexible. The guests couldn't thank me enough for finding her and they are not easy to please. The tour was...

My husband and I had two wonderful tours with Madrid Cool and Cultural. Not only were the guides informative and extremely knowledgeable, but they were also fun to spend the days with. We had a walking tour of the sights of Madrid along with great stops for local food: churros and chocolate, cafe, and even calamari sandwich. Gemma was great!... More

AMAZING! Both our guides, driver and the sights were wonderful. Walking tour, museums, driving city tour, lunch, then off to another place in time in Toledo! Even a wonderful suggestion for dinner. Every detail was taken care of. Jemma was able to take us on an unforgettable journey made just for us. We have made new friends and will be... More

We were a group of 3 looking to maximize our time in Madrid with a city tour andexcursion to Toledo. Our first guide was Teresa who was just perfect for the city tour and Prado museum given her knowledge of art history. Gemma then took us to Toledo where we were enlightened by her knowledge of this area. The driver... More

This tailor made cultural tour of Madrid and Toledo was beyond my expectations. Our knowledgable guides were personable, professional and passionate about their subjects. It was truly a memorable experience and gave me an opportunity to learn about the history and culture of Spain in a multi-dimensional way. I wouldn't hesitate to encourage my very best friends to use this... More

Teenagers are a tough read. But, when you get a 15 year old and twin 13-year-olds engaged in... fine art (!), palaces (!), history (!) and no WiFi... That is the magic of Spain Cool and Cultural. The owner, Jemma, is brillant. Her hand-picked guides reflect her dedication to a quality experience for clients. We had three days with Spain... More

Staying in Huertas

Neighborhood Profile
Huertas
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighborhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighborhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
