What you'll do

Come with me on a private tour with a nice mix of history, architecture, fun anecdotes, a few jokes and really, really, tasty food.
We'll start at the Plaza Mayor and then make our way through the old village, stoping to enjoy some entrees and drinks along the way and continue our historical journey through the most ancient and interesting parts of the old town, to finally end before the majestic Royal Palace.
We’ll finish the tour at 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. Of course, aside from the food goodies, we will get an opportunity to chill, know each other better and share some laughs.
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!

If you’re an easygoing and kinda foodie person, you have come to the right place! But don’t let me convince you all by myself, go ahead and take a look at some of the reviews and check out what people have to say about this experience!

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 than 5 years and after working for other companies i decided to start my own experience!

    Meeting Abel felt like seeing a friend you hadn't seen in a while. I am always in absolute awe of the history and culture that is still living and breathing or adapted and changed over time. Abel recreated this world through his storytelling, helping us understand what Madrid is today. Of course, afternoon drinking always makes history more fun, even though Abel’s tour did not need it. Nonetheless, my boyfriend and I enjoyed it, and I would 10/10 highly recommend it.

    We booked a tour with Abel to discover the history of Madrid. We ended up being the only people on the tour so we got an awesome personal experience. Abel is a great storyteller, super knowledgeable about Spain history, and an all-around nice person to spend a day with. I would highly recommend this tour to any hungry curious traveler.

    The tour with Abel is a good way to start exploring the city. Abel knows a lot about the history of Madrid and has a good way of explaining.

    Abel was friendly and knowledgable, able to get the group talking and sharing. I definitely recommend the tour. History and walk was great and it was a perfect amount of food. No one left hungry and it was all smiles!

    Abel is a great guide. He combines city tour with interesting history, food and other culture. I and my daughter enjoyed the 3 and half hours tour a lot. Abel gave us extra information about good restaurants in Madrid. He is a very creative and intelligent person. We definitely recommend to do the tour with Abel when you are in Madrid.
