We just completed a delightful, interesting and insightful tour with Gemma. My husband and I spent over four hours doing the Essential Madrid tour of the old city and couldn't have enjoyed it more. Gemma has multiple university degrees including one in Art History and her narration gave us an appreciation for this beautiful city that we would not have... More

Our Madrid art tour with the marvelous Teresa Vega of Madrid Cool and Cultural was the highlight of our 6 week European vacation. When we headed to Spain, a friend recommended Gemma's wonderful service, so we made arrangements a few months ahead of time. Gemma stayed close in touch through emails and Skype calls, and even recommended excellent hotels and... More

I never write online reviews. But in this case, I felt so strongly about sharing our wonderful experience with MC&C that I had to write one. My wife and I wanted to visit Madrid for the first time - a short 4 day visit. I spend a lot of time researching before making a decision and this time was no... More

She even took a group picture of us and then emailed it along with other pictures from the day. Our private tour of... More

My two teenage granddaughters and I were shown Madrid on foot by Alicia. It was a wonderful day, filled with information about the history of Madrid and the sites where much of the history happened. It was chock filled, so much that by the end of the day we had to miss the last site visit because we were happy... More

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
