My family elected to take this tour on 8/18/2016. We booked it through the Viator website but the tour itself was operated by Julia Travel. It was one of the worst tour experiences we have ever had. For starters, the tour was advertised as an English speaking tour. Instead, the group consisted of Spanish, French and English speaking tourists. Over... More

Friend and I were looking for a day trip to Segovia and Avila from Madrid without having to rent a car, and public transit takes a long time, so we booked this tour to save on transport time. The tour was decent and the coach was comfortable. The challenges of traveling in large groups and herding people is not our... More

We took the full day trip to Avila and Segovia and it was a great day out. The guide was informative and assisted us. The lunch in Segovia was a little bit sad...but everyone was friendly.

Today we took a tour to Toledo with Marta. We were very fortunate to have the tour all to ourselves. Marta is very knowledgeable about the history of Toledo and led us through the three sections of the city. She showed us the synagogue, the various churches ( including the Church of the royal family) and many other interesting sites.... More

Tour started right on time and was well organised. Sylvia was an excellent bi lingual guide who managed the two small groups very efficiently. The bathroom stop at the gift shop was unexpected but necessary in hindsight. Wandered Toledo at a leisurely pace with lots of photo opportunities. 2 hour free time for lunch and then off to a great... More

We booked the Madrid Highlights half day tour as a way to see the key attractions in a short time since we would only be in Madrid for two days. The size of the tour was appropriate and when the guide asked how many languages she needed to speak I was not concerned. She needed to cover English, Spanish and... More

Absolutely awful tour. To begin with the tour started a good 20 minutes late . the guide was hopeless and I wonder if she knew the city at all. Ask her anything about Madrid, that was not on her script and was unable to answer. The bus tour was pathetic, not even circular. There were so many sights that they... More

Don't do the half day tour it is too short! Do the full day and spend a few hours in the cathedral, you will not be disappointed. Even if you have to break from the group. This attraction is the highest rated and for good reason. 200 years to complete and still fully functioning.

We went on the Toledo half-day tour from Madrid today with tour guide Marta. The only reason this review is receiving a grade of 2 is because Toledo itself is well worth the visit as a historical site of Spain and Marta herself was a pretty good guide. However, the service in the tour office and corporate feel of the... More

First, to be fair this trip to Toledo was basically good and we enjoyed the information. But there have been some logistical issues with the Viator tours we've booked in Spain. (And not all of them are sourced through Julia, so noting that.) The Toledo half day trip was, like our others, in both Spanish and English. That's helpful to... More

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Centro
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
