A bit pricey...a bit rushed

On our recent visit to Madrid, we wanted to explore outside of the capital. We used Juliá Travel on two separate days. The first trip we took with them was El Escorial and the... read more

I called Julia Travel and was told to wait 10 or so minutes, I did, no car. I called back and they told me that the driver was having some problems with the police or parking attendent,... More

We had a great experience with this tour company. We booked everything at home from the USA and met at the Julia travel location to meet the group. We were very happy with everything.

Pros: Hotels were decent I had the 4 star package Get to see a lot of Spain in a short amount of time Cons: You spend 75% of this tour on a coach bus Lunches are usually at rest stops/service...

Ishmael was our Guide throughout this tour, and I believe any Guide has a responsibility to ensure our well-being & safety. On several occasions throughout this tour, we made several complaints regarding the behaviour of some other travellers on this tour. These complaints addressed the nature of abuse - sexually, physically & orally - towards myself and other English Speaking... More

On our recent visit to Madrid, we wanted to explore outside of the capital. We used Juliá Travel on two separate days. The first trip we took with them was El Escorial and the Valle de los Caídos (Valley of the Fallen) in the morning, and Toledo in the afternoon. I have reviewed the sites separately. We purchased this trip... More

Viator contracted with Julia Travel. The Bus tour was less than expected. Too many stops and time spent at places "rest stops" that of course you could buy food, beverage or trinkets. Not enough time at actual points of interest. Granada was a compete let down, never saw the main rooms, particularly with the lion fountains, but spent hours walking... More

We booked the El Escorial Monastery and the Valley of the Fallen from Madrid tour through Viator.com so we didn't get a choice of which tour group to choose from. We arrived at the Julia Travel office at San Nicolás Street nº15 (corner with Plaza Ramales) at 8:30am. After we got our tour tickets from a staff member, we stood... More

We decided to try this "free" walking tour just after a trip on the tourist bus. We were lucky to get a personal tour in English since we were the only two customers. Our tour guide was Pablo, who was very knowledgeable about Madrid, history and Spanish culture. He also recommended a couple of excellent places to eat. We did... More

The tour was informative and detailed. We hit all of the important areas of Madrid. The tour guide wasn't overly engaging. It wasn't a huge issue but some people had questions not relating to the tour and she was a little dismissive. Also, on our tickets there is a free drink in the Hard Rock Cafe. This isn't available in... More

Booked this trip thru the hotel travel service, Julia travel. The bus picks you up at the hotel around 8am then dropped us off about 3 miles away to meet up with the rest of the groups! There is no transportation back to the hotel after getting dropped off! Wear comfortable walking shoes, plenty of walking! The ride was about... More

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
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.
