About
Beginning with the monument of King Felipe IV in the center of Plaza de Oriente, we'll explore the streets, squares, avenues and monuments of old Madrid. I'll show you the secret places and charming corners of old town. We'll visit some places that even the locals don't know. The origins of the capital city go back to the Middle Ages, when it was a small military city. Several ruins remain, like the medieval Muslim wall in the gardens of Emir Mohamed I, streets influenced by their Arab and Jewish origins, and Plaza del Alamillo, where kings and princesses would watch medieval tournaments. We'll see the Jewish quarter and the towers of old mosques, now transformed into churches, such as Pedro el Viejo or the Capilla del Obispo. We'll also see a secret garden that was once the orchard of a convent, and the Tower and Palace of Los Lujanes, a very important family of historic Madrid. There, the walls speak to the three cultures and three religions of Madrid.

We were in Madrid for 6 days and hired Jaime Sanchez on the first full day of our visit. We hired Jaime for a customized walking tour of Madrid and asked to see the major museums and historic buildings as well as some of the interesting modern buildings. We were interested in the history of the city and suggestions for cool things we could see on our own. We wanted advice on how to navigate the city on our own, when was the best time to go to the various exhibitions and where the locals liked to eat and drink.
Jamie provided excellent value because the time we spent with him was informative and enjoyable and the suggestions he gave us provided us with days of additional activities.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐⭐️

✅PROS: authentic, unique, personalized, client-centered, entertaining, engaging, enriching, unforgettable, priceless, accessible and tasty :)
❌CONS: the time flows by, and 3-4 hours pass like 20 mins!! and you want more🤣

It wasn't my first time in Madrid, and I wanted something special.
I knew I could count on Jaime from Buzziler and asked him about a private tour, because he doesn’t do learned-by-heart dull book tours, but can design them according to your preferences.

✅The most exciting part was still ahead!!
Imagine, It’s almost Christmas, Madrid is shining, and here we finally are!! Right on time, walking through the narrow streets and secret Madrid corners (totally impressive), enjoying awesome Madrid architecture, sharing old legends and finally (oh my God!) entering the mysterious Royal Palace of Madrid.

Trembling of admiration, we are already passing its tremendous luxury halls with thrones, crowns, graceful statues, sophisticated art objects, examining gorgeous mythology scenes, armor, huge shining chandeliers, magnificent carpets, legendary Stradivarius violins...
Jaime brings this journey through the great Spanish history to life, we are meeting the Royal Family members, going through their fights, celebrating their victories, discovering their secrets, being guests at their Royal balls and dinners… So awesome to be a part of it! The journey feels so unreal, like in a dream and I don’t want to wake up.

✅Great trip. Great Christmas tour with warm, friendly atmosphere and inspiration.
Jaime’s knowledge, individual and client-oriented approach, charisma, professionalism, dedication, sincere interest and his passion about the topic are so captivating and contagious!

➡️Sadly closing the Royal Palace door and have to go, the tour is over. But it will be impossible not to come back.
