    Wonderful tour with Beatriz
    Wonderful tour with Beatriz, despite the pouring rain. Learned a lot about Madrid and got many local tips. Very informative, personal and engaging tour. We got to try famous local wine and vermouth, and Beatriz showed us where to buy the secret nun’s cookies that we would never be able to find with our limited Spanish. Our teens were engaged the entire time. Thank you!

    Great Free Walking Tour
    We did the free walking tour of the old town and loved it. Tatiana spoke very good English, she was very energetic and we learnt a lot about Madrid. Tipping is not mandatory but with the quality of the tour it is definitely deserved. Loved the experience and would definitely recommend it.

    An interesting and informative overview of Old Madrid
    I would recommend this tour with Tatiana. She gave great context and some inside information. We did a different walking tour with our larger group later and this was so much better. She also had a booklet that added interesting details.

    Free Walking Tour - Great!
    We had a great time in the free walking tour with Tatiana. She explained ALL the basics of Madrid and Madrid’s history in a simple and fun way. She gave a lot of tips and background stories. She took us also inside the oldest restaurant in the world, Botin (which other walking tours don’t do). Perfect English of course. Thanks Tatiana!

    Excellent tour
    Tatiana, thank you for the amazing tour. We were really lucky to get you as our guide in Madrid. In less than 3 hours we have learned so much of Madrid history, seen so many historical buildings and even visited the cellars of the oldest Madrid restaurant. Highly recommended.

    Free walking tour
    We did this tour with Tatiana and it was really interesting. We were shown some lovely places, and Tatiana told us the history, she is very knowledgeable and her English is perfect. It was a comfortable pace and she was happy to answer any questions and provide some useful tips.

    Best Historic Tour - just book it!
    Tatiana was wonderful and knowledgeable about the history of the historic area of Madrid. She kept my interest throughout the tour (and she had excellent energy). We learned a lot of interesting history about buildings, kings, strawberry trees, more than 100 year old restaurants/stores, mysterious cookie selling nuns and more!

    Excellent Little Tour
    Excellent tour with an enthusiastic guide. On this tour you get exposure to the parts of old Madrid that you would normally walk right past without knowing their significance. Fun and reasonably priced excursion getting to know the area more intimately.

    BEST city tour - First day of your trip is highly recommended!
    We decided to take a last minute tour with Ogo Tours (specifically Tatiana) and it was the BEST DECISION we made on our trip to Madrid. I rarely take tours but my partner suggested we try it out. This was the most informative, lively, well planned and executed tour I've been on.... I've been to Madrid in the past but this tour made me love it more intimately. Additionally, Tatiana is so genuinely in love with the city that her energy transfers to the rest of the group. The tour didn't feel robotic/rehearsed which must be a difficult task. It was scorching hot (July in Madrid) but we would have walked around with her for the rest of the day if we could. I can't say more how much I highly recommend it. My only regret is not having more cash to give her.

    Simply Amazing
    Tatiana was simply amazing. She has so much energy and expressiveness in everything she says and tells the stories about the city with such enthusiasm that one can never forget what they have seen and heard. She ensures inclusiveness of everyone in the group so that people who did not know anyone find themselves making new acquaintances. Great tour and wonderful person

    Amazing walking tour with Tatiana
    We booked our places on line through the website. We immediately received a confirmation and a further reminder of joining instructions on the day before our visit. We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 hour walking tour with Tatiana as our guide. The tour was conducted at a comfortable pace and in perfect English. Even my 6 year old son enjoyed it. The walk included a good variety of visits and stops and Tatiana provided us with a wealth of interesting historical, cultural, political and anecdotal information. She even showed us the oldest restaurant in the world and thanks to her we saw the table inside it where Ernest Hemingway was sitting when visiting Madrid. We would highly recommend this trip and had our stay in Madrid been longer we would certainly have joined her again for one of the alternative tours offered by the company.

    AWESOME
    Tatiana was amazing, she‘s so kind and knows her way around the Center of Madrid perfectly! I loved her energy, her english is perfect, she was so helpful and the tips and hidden gems aren’t a joke, you will know and remember all of them, because she brings the information so naturally. She‘s just an awesome guide! Would 10/10 times recommend and tell all my friends to book a tour with her when in Madrid!

    AMAZING
    This was amazing choice! I wish I had done this the first day I arrived in Madrid. The tour is just wonderful. The guide takes you to all important parts of Madrid and tells you so much from the history. The best thing about this your is that you are showed to restaurants and bars that locals like. This was incredible and I wish I had more time to visit all the local restaurants as recommended. Surely, this your is something you must do when visiting Madrid. Thank you again for this amazing experience.

We had a fantastic tour with Javier! He is very knowledgable and has an amazing way of telling the history through stories and anecdotes. He also had lots of great recommendations after we explained the kind of restaurants we like. Would highly recommend! His English is brilliant too!

I know fewer people are traveling right now so I wanted to make sure I wrote some reviews to so people have up to date information. I did a four hour walking tour with Gonzalo. The first part of the tour I needed to get a Covid test on a Sunday so I could fly home the next day. Thank goodness Gonzalo found an open location and took the train and had it completed within 30 minutes, I would have never found it on my own using public transport and my Spanish is not very good so he was super helpful to make sure I got the correct test. After that we went and toured the City, the Palace and the Cathedral. For me the private tours are great if they help avoid waiting in line, learn some history and have fun and this tour did it all. Gonzalo I will never Tio Pepe :) Thanks again!

My family of three had a recent short visit to Madrid and at the beginning we took 3 hours free walking tour with Tatiana. Some stops on the way were particularly exciting. Tatiana was just amazing: very entertaining, engaging and knowledgeable! We could feel her enthusiasm and love for Madrid! She is very nice and sincere person and very professional. Tatiana gave us recommendations about places to eat and even send some later by email. We would definitely recommend that small family business to anybody visiting Madrid. You pay at the end, but book online ahead of time.

Thanks for your charming guidance, Tatiana. I really enjoyed the old town and the information about the most interesting attractions in Madrid. Although I hadn't booked the tour and just joined in the last few minutes before it started. Everything was much more than my expectation. Best wishes for your exciting business. I highly recommend newcomers to take this tour when visiting Madrid.

Tatiana is so enthusiastic about Madrid which helped me to see it through her eyes. She provided sooooo much historical information (but not in an academic way) and remembered the tour participants based on their country of origin and related the stories into those countries where possible. She was funny and did I mention enthusiastic? If you do any walking tour in Madrid, make it this one, even if you haven't planned to do a walking tour consider this.
