Two couples, kids safely at home, 2 freezing days in Madrid; Gemma made one of them a wonderful experience. She picked us up a our hotel and while we were finishing our last cup of coffee, shared with us basic Spanish history. At that moment, we knew we picked the right tour guide. She found just the right level of detail to keep our interest. And this didn't change for the entire time we spent with her. She mixed today's aspects of interest with culinary recommendations and historical facts which made our time with her so enjoyable. Even when we were on our own again, her recommendations accompanied us to two great restaurants and an amazing flamenco performance. Our day in Madrid with Gemma could not have been better!

We chose Madrid Cool & Cultural for a tour around the city (Essential Madrid) and it was a great experience. Gemma was extremely prepared and we had an excellent experience! We were a group of 24 people (school study tour) but she didnt have any difficulties with such a large group. The next day we had a tour of The Prado Museum with David (2 hours guided tour) and everything went great as well! If you want to visit Madrid go with Madrid Cool & Cultural!!!

We chose Eduardo from Madrid Cool & Cultural for his German speaking capabilities, but in reality, he didn't have to translate too much for us, as his explanations were easily understood in just English. Edu's knowledge of the city, from knowing how to get around in an efficient manner, to little hidden secrets which only locals know about, to the new and hip parks and neighborhoods made our experience that much more pleasurable. I highly recommend Edu for her German skills and (more importantly), her ability to provide a really fun and rewarding tour of Madrid in such a short period of time. Thanks again!!!

Recently we had a great tour with Gemma around the old city. This was our first trip to Madrid and she introduced us to the history of the city, illustrating it with interesting stories that our boys enjoyed listening to. She showed us the hidden corners that you don't see in a group tour. She talked about history, but also about Spanish traditions and lifestyle, both in the past and today. No better way to learn about the city and have fun. We hope to go again and enjoy some of her other tours.

Gemma took me on a solo private tour around the old city of Madrid (at very short notice) and what a morning it was.

The intimate and boutique style of her private tour really feels like you're sampling a tiny slice of the Spanish lifestyle!

The experience was more like an old friend taking me around their beloved city, and I will be sure to catch-up with Gemma again for a more extensive tour next time I am in Madrid.
