This hybrid tour is a great introduction to Madrid and lets you tick off many of the city's highlights in just three hours!

Your adventure begins with a walk through the atmospheric alleys and plazas of Madrid’s old town. Pause at the Plaza de la Villa, home to some of the city’s oldest buildings including the well-preserved 16th-century Casa de Cisnero palace and the imposing city hall. You’ll also visit the vast Plaza Mayor square and Puerta del Sol with its famous clock tower. 

Next, hop aboard the air-conditioned bus for a whistle-stop whiz around some of Madrid’s best-loved attractions. This part of the tour includes a chance to see the Napoleonic-era Puerta de Toledo triumphal arch, the ancient city gate of Puerta de Alcalá, and Puente de Segovia, a splendid Roman aqueduct-style stone bridge that dates back to the 1580s.

As you cruise riverside, you’ll also enjoy fantastic panoramas that take in the enormous Royal Palace and fine neo-classical cathedral.

Soccer fans will enjoy spotting the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, home of Real Madrid – the Spanish soccer league's most successful team of all time – and the Fountain of Cybele, the 18th-century monument where fans traditionally celebrate their team’s victories.
