Overview

Travel back in time to explore the beauty of Madrid’s 18th century architecture and learn about the influences of the Bourbon Royal family. Your expert guide will lead you through the period of Enlightenment and the history that shaped the construction of modern Madrid. Wander along the famous Gran Vía street, where the first skyscrapers in Spain were built and pass by the historical Telefónica building that became an air raid shelter during the Spanish Civil War. Don’t forget to stop at the impressive Apollo fountain and the exquisite Cibeles Palace as you take in the many wonders Madrid has to offer.

This is a private live virtual tour. Our professional, local guide will be showing you Madrid’s most fascinating sights in real time, directly from the streets of Madrid. You will be connected via video call and you can then explore the city together. With your experienced guide you will see more than just the Madrid of today, you’ll also get a glimpse back in time because each tour is complemented with an excellent selection of multimedia. You will be shown historic photographs and videos to help with explanations, stories and the historical context of Madrid's incredible and turbulent past. You can’t get any closer to history without a time machine!

The entire tour is designed to be as interactive as you desire. You can ask questions, you can request to go back and look at something again, you have all the freedom and participation of a private walking tour, all from the comfort of your own home.

The video calling software used for the tour is called Zoom. You will need to have it downloaded on your laptop, tablet or cellphone – with a connection to speakers or headphones – in order to participate in the tour. Also, remember to keep an eye on the time difference when choosing a time for your private virtual experience, as all times stated are in Madrid time!
