We were a group of 8 people and our guide, Josefina, was great and enthusiastic the whole tour. However, at the end me and my friends gave her a tip (around 25 euros) because we considered that she did a great job showing us the city and she asked if we could give her more money since she needs to pay a 3 euros fee for every person that books a tour with her. I thought this was a very inconvenient behavior since the tour is advertised as free (tip based) and that in the official website it specifically says "The tours are operated based on free contributions, so there is no entrance fee to access them ... we strive to do quality work so that your contribution is worth it!". It should be said in the website that there is a minimum amount of money that each person needs to give to the tour guide.

We were a group of 8 Portuguese people in a group of 14 people.
Josefina was amazing and explained everything very well. She was nice and we loved the tour, but at the end it happened something that totally disappoint me.
Everyone gave her a tip, just like me. However, Josefina asked us for more money because she had to pay a fee for every person of the group.
I thought it was not elegant because I immediatly explained that we thought it was free and so we were not carrying more money, just card.
Still, she insisted that we give more money.

Carlos was a great guide, very friendly, knowledgeable about the city, and told us lots of funny stories related to its past. The tour had a good pace, not too rushed and not too slow. He gave us time to try some cultural things, such as the orange liqueur shot, or waiting to see the watch maker show. Afterwards, he took us to a restaurant that he likes to visit and it was really good food.

As a young woman spending the day alone in Madrid I was very lucky to find this walking tour. I learned so many interesting facts I never knew I never knew. Carlos was amazing and never failed to show his humour and knowledge, such a helpful guide! Highly recommend for anyone who wants a deeper understanding of Madrid’s culture, and to make new friends 😊

Sol (the square where all the tours start) is packed most mornings with people and different colored umbrellas offering tours. Make sure you choose the purple one and if there is more than one purple one, make sure you choose “4U Madrid Walking Tour”. We didn’t have a reservation and it was no problem at all but I guess online booking is preferred.

Carlos is awesome, his passion for the city he calls home is obvious from the first minute and never lets up. Interesting stories and funny tales are complemented with the city’s biggest sites, chocolate adorned local liquor shots and incredible food at the end (if you take him up on his offer of a restaurant recommendation).

I’ve been on a few free walking tours in different cities and this easily put itself at the top of the list.

Bravo to Carlos and the team for making this is a unique and memorable experience in a very beautiful city.

It was the first time we had visited Madrid and we had only one day to discover to city. It was a lucky day for us because when we arrived at Puerta del Sol, we saw Carlos with his purple umbrella and just asked to join. It was informative and funny 2 hours walking tour and we really enjoyed. Carlos has very good English, kind and funny. I highly recommend this tour

Wow! What an amazing tour from beginning to end. Carlos was an absolute incredible wealth of knowledge about Ancient Madrid and the history that goes along with all the sites we visited. His sense of humour and friendly personality made the two hours fly by way too quickly. We learned so much and had a lot of fun at the same time. The people of Madrid, were very practical when it came to naming their streets as we soon found out. It became an ongoing joke throughout the tour. We would highly recommend 4U Tours to learn and experience Madrid in an informative and entertaining way!! Thank you Carlos for a great tour.
