Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Well worth the time Ignacio is fantastic, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. If you enjoy history and learning about subtle points of history easily missed by yourself then this is the tour for you.

Cristina, our Guide, was fantastic. We found the tour very relaxed but informative and interesting.

It is so easy to pass everything by as a naive tourist but not understand the relevance of what you are looking at or taking a photo of. Cristina provided all of those fun facts you would otherwise be oblivious to.

This tour was a great way to spend 2.5hrs and despite the weather we had fun. Thanks for all the insight!

It was the perfect free tour and we paid more than what we originally intended to at the end because of how impressed we were.

We had the Majestic Madrid tour with Cristina and it was a total blast. Cristina is a very cheerful and upbeat person who has a lot of knowledge about historic facts of the Madrid. She provided just enough facts and interesting historic details without overwhelming us with unnecessary information, as opposite to some other guides on different tours. Thank you Cristina!!!

Our walking tour was excellent! We learned so much history of Madrid and saw famous sites such as the palace, cathedral and the oldest restaurant and barbershop. Our tour guide told wonderful stories to help us remember what we learned. He also gave us an outstanding recommendation for dining!

How does one leave no stars? It was non-existent. The tour guide did not show up at the agreed place/time.

We called the contact number a few times and left a voicemail. No reply or even subsequently.

A worthless waste of time.

Good afternoon, We do not know why you say that we did not assist to do the Tour when did assist. We do not cancel the organization of the Tours unless we do not reach the minimum number of participants (2), but in case we cancel it, we always let you know in advance that the Tour will not take place so you can look for an alternative. Maybe you did not reach the right meeting point or you didn't arrive on time, and so, if the guide has already started the Tour he/she cannot attend the phone-calls, that is why we always recommend you to reach the meeting point 5-10 minutes before the beginning. We are sorry that you didn't find us, but it had to be because of any of those 2 reasons that we have mentioned and not because we didn't show up. Sincerely, Vive Madrid Tours Team

Matilde was an excellent guide. Her knowledge of history and art was superb. Even though we walked a long way, she did not force the pace, giving us time to take in our surroundings. We would highly recommend this tour with Matilde.

I did the Austrians tour with Jose Manuel. He is a very good guide, well-informed and very good-humoured. The tour lasted three hours, but seemed to go by in a flash. I recommend this tour unreservedly and I am planning to do the tour of Bourbon Madrid when I get back to Madrid again.

Thank you very much for your kind words Cian! It was a great pleasure sharing Madrid with someone as nice as you! So I hope the next time you are visiting Madrid we will see us again so we can take the Tour of Madrid of the Bourbons to discover the majestic side of the city. Take care meanwhile Cian! :) José-Manuel (Mel)

Both the morning tour of the old city and the afternoon tour of the new city were excellent. Small groups, very informative, not the usual touristy experience. Ignacio is a very knowledgeable and friendly guide, and also gave us some great tips for places to eat and have a drink where the locals do. Highly recommend.
