About
Madrid is full of myths and legends but only some of them have a real background. Together we will examine a house of a merchant of that period, a small palace, a museum and much more and we will examine the historical context of the period and how this environment created the myths of modern Madrid. Together we will walk for 2 hours in the heart of Madrid and we will examine the myths and legends of the city. Haunted buildings and hospitals, streets with history hidden inside their name, and we will discuss the most popular urban legends of Madrid and Spain. As they say, where is smoke there is fire so we will examine the historical context of the myths and we will try to break them down. Every one of them has more than one version so together we will examine what is the spectrum we use to interpret with legends. During those 2 hours, we will be in continuous movement and we will start from the heart of the city the Puerta del Sol and we will finish in Plaza Mayor.

Great Experience and Conversation!
Mar 2020 • Couples
My husband and I went on this tour just before Madrid’s lockdown due to COVID-19. We had such a wonderful conversation with the tour guide about history, culture and politics. He had genuine interest in comparing stories between our cities, we are from Chicago. It ended up being one of the top highlights of our week long stay in Spain.

Elizabetha and her husband were excellent clients. They came to Spain during a challenging period and actually were our last clients before stop the tours for as long as the government going to decide. It is important that we had such great customers during this period, they were super friendly and positive. We wish you the best and we will be here when you come again. All the best!

Harry was an amazing tour guide. We learned so much about the myths and legends of Madrid, but also got general knowledge of the city as we went. Highly recommend, its a great way to see the city and learn more about the city!

Elizabeth and her companion were excellent clients. In 2 hours we managed to talk about New York, Ireland, Spain and in general everything possible. We honestly enjoy when I have people like Elizabeth and her partner(I am sorry I do not remember your name spear barrier) because it feels like I was in a walk with friends. Thank you both very much! Hope to see you back as soon as possible.

Emily and her husband were excellent clients. Very polite, very interesting point of views. We did a customised in their need tour and it was great. They are totally adjustable people. We where in constantly movement but we never stopped talking about the life in Spain or in the USA. We wish you prosperity and health for your child that will come soon and we hope to see you all back in Madrid!

Great adventure through Madrid!
Harry was a great tour guide with so much information about all that Madrid has to offer. A nice long walk full of history and legends, you could never get this experience driving around or even with Google. To see it first hand with a fountain of information like Harry was great. I am glad I was able to do this within my 24 hours in Madrid.

Cara was an excellent client. She arrived on time, she was very polite but mainly she had her own unique way of thinking so she added her own unique interpretation in our stories. Very unique person we hope to see her back in Madrid.

Insight into history, mythology, and culture of Madrid!
Harry gave a great and insightful tour of some of the darker stories and locations within Madrid. He gave the original stories and explained the current theories about their origins. If you want to skip the typical tours of the main tourist areas, this is a great tour to take!

Enjoyable way to see the city and hear some unusual stories
Jan 2020
Really good way to spend a few hours in Madrid. The guide, Harry, was very nice. Loved the stories, particularly Perro Paco and also the one at the seven chimneys where there are 3 versions of events and psychologists believe you can tell a person's character from which of the stories they believe - I am happy to be diagnosed as a logical person. Next time when I return , hoping to also do one of the tapas and wine tours run by this company. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to have a nice walk and chat around Madrid. And the little beer opener gift was nice too.

Gayle was an excellent client, she was very polite, she came on time and she participated during all the tour. Together we talked the same time about Hamilton FC and Rangers(good luck in both of them!) and about the sociocultural background of the urban legends. A very unique client we can not see her back in Madrid.

Just Amazing! Alternative way to get to know Madrid and Harry - A Must-Do experience!
Jan 2020
What a great introdution to Madrid! Our group of 6 friends decided to take this tour as it offers a different and very fresh perspective in the city's history, not similar to other convential (and sometimes boring) history tours. Harry is an A-M-A-Z-I-N-G guide and a genuinely interesting person, his knowledge and insight in the city's highlights, myths and legends is transmitted to the people in an unbiased, communicative and funny way. The stories he shared stick with you forever, the total experience is a "must-do" when you visit Madrid. Harry is passionate about his subject and makes sure everyone in the group is having a great time. I totally recommend the "Haunted Madrid" so if you have time for just one experience in Madrid, please make sure it is this one!!!

We can not thank Xrysaugh enough for her review. She is one of the most admirable people we met, ever! She is the definition of positive energy and a person full of energy. We can not recommend her enough. When she is your client you actually do not have a client but a friend sharing his point of view with you. Do your self a favour and when you have Xrysaugh as your client please try to get as much as you can because it is very rare to meet people like her. We can not wait to have her back in Madrid as soon as possible!

Great tour
Jan 2020 • Solo
It tuned out that I was the only one booking at the time I did which worked on my side. Harry is a great tour guide with answers to all my questions. The tour itself is full of history and legends. I was amazed how time flew when you’re having a really good time.
I recommend the tour to anyone looking for a different kind of experience.

Luis is a very interesting person, a true traveller. He lived in many countries and travelled in many places so in the end, I was asking more questions than he did. We can not wait to host Luis back in Madrid and we can not recommend him enough as a client.
