What you'll do

Come with me on private a tour with a nice mix of history, architecture, fun anecdotes and a few jokes. We'll start at the Plaza Mayor and then make our way through the old village to finally end before the majestic Royal Palace. After a while we'll make a stop by a really cosy, gourmet restaurant where you'll get to taste different, mouth-watering, chef made tapas, local drinks and a really special and traditional liquor quite involved with the history of the city. Aside from the food goodies, we will get an opportunity to know each other better, share some laughs and gather some energy for the last part of the tour.
Come and see Madrid through my eyes, i want to make you feel as if you're walking through the city with a bunch of friends but one of them happens to know a lot about it and is more than willing to share the knowledge with you!

I am a friendly and easy going guy who has fell in love with this city and its amazing history. Luckily, i have had the opportunity to be a tour guide for more tan 4 years, so i offer highly curated tours, historical tours but arranged on a fun, interactive and didactic way, so you can learn about our city without having the felling of being on a classroom.

Abel was the perfect host. He welcomed us warmly and made us feel instantly like good friends. He was particularly understanding when our small child was suffering meltdowns due to jet lag (we had just arrived that morning from USA and gotten very little sleep!) He was genuine and very informative. We felt like we could quiz him endlessly about the historical events and he would know the answers. Abel went above and beyond to help us with locating restaurants, etc. by email later in our stay.

Great small group tour with lots of history and seeing some cool sites a long the way. The walk wasn't that hard and when I mentioned my foot was beginning to hurt (recent surgery), Abel made sure to stop in places with seating so I could rest while he continued his talk.

Abel is a superb guide. He explained lots of interesting information which I was never able to notice without the walking tour with him. I highly recommend his tour!

Abel's knowledge and love of Madrid was obvious when he took my 6 friends and I for a 3 hour trip around the old town. We had great weather and really enjoyed learning about all the aspects of Madrid's history and geography and culture and cuisine, etc. Abel is a great guide, I would recommend his tours to anyone who's never been to Madrid before!!

Abel led a great tour for my friends and I, and skillfully managed to handle 7 ladies around the old town for a fun yet educational afternoon. He is knowledgeable and friendly and the restaurant we stopped by for pintxos was really nice. Definitely recommend!

A great, personal tour of some of the most important historical places in Madrid with many stops and stories on the way. Abel made us all welcome and encouraged participation, which was great. The tour finished with some delicious food and drink, again with commentary on each. Fantastic tour with a knowledgeable and funny guide. 100% recommend.
