We had one day to spend in Madrid. Gemma was our walking guide. She was very knowledgeable and fun. She managed to keep my two teenagers engaged for the entire walking tour. I would highly recommend her. We were in Europe for almost two weeks and did many guided tours. Gemma was our favorite.

We had two days of excellent walking tours with Gemma. What a pleasure. Gemma showed us the "off the beaten track" Madrid and we were hooked. What a fun two days. These were tours we will never forget. Gemma ensured we fell in love with her City and we will be back. A tour with Gemma will not disappoint.

Staying in Huertas

Neighborhood Profile
Huertas
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighborhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighborhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
