We always use Sandman’s tours in every city we go to. Alex was so funny and made Spain’s history come to life. We really enjoyed the 2:00 tour. He gave us a great recommendation for a place to have dinner and it was our favorite meal so far. I loved that our tour was only 15 people. Alex you are a gem! Thank you for making us laugh!

Alex was extremely engaging and knowledgeable. Slighty obsessed with the year 1561, but for good reason as he explained throughout the tour. I walked away feeling like I learned a lot, and had a few good laughs along the way. I highly recommend taking this tour with Alex!

I’ve taken a free tour with Dani and he is the best!! We’ve seen lovely places in Madrid and he tells a lot of interesting facts and history of the city.
He also gives so many good tips on what to do and even recommends some Flamenco music so we can feel and enjoy the city while listening to it.
I definitely recommend the tour with Dani!!!

An excellent tour, very amusing and informative. Alex gave his own personal take on the city, together with the history of Spain. He is very engaging and his fascination with Madrid made it an interesting walk.

I recommend it. Enrique, the guide of our group, told us some really interesting historical informations to the visited spots and had a great dramaturgy in doing that.

I joined 2 tours with SANDEMANs. The first was the Tapas tour and it was okay in terms of the value (for the price, and the food and drinks you get in return). Though overall concession of the group was that the restaurant they brought us too was not that good. I also wish it to be more cultural oriented, but that was the only tapas tour I did, so can't compare.

The second one was the Madrid free tour and that was a let down. The guide spent too much time on certain stories and small jokes, plus selling flamenco tickets. We wish it to cover more of the architecture, history, etc. Perhaps some people like it, but we joined many other walking tours in Spain and this one is the least favourite. We were glad to be done after 2.5 hours.

This was our fifth free tour with Sandemans and it was wonderful. Sebastian was our tour guide. He was full of excitement and love for his city. Did an amazing job explaining the history. We also did the inquisition tour with Lexi. Now we have done many tours, free and paid, and this was our favorite. Lexi did a fantastic job explaining the whole history of the Spanish inquisition. She was very passionate and knowledgeable. We learned so much about this time period. My husband had said right before the tour, I hope this tour guide just bombards my brain with information and she delivered! We love history so it was perfect. Lexi was so sweet too! Super helpful on suggestions for Madrid. It was a cold, rainy night but definately worth it!

Lexi was one of the best guides I've ever had. She made the Spanish Inquisition tour so enjoyable. She is so knowledgeable about not only the Spanish Inquisition but also Madrid. She's so passionate about what she does and kept me intrigued for the entire two hours and 15 minutes. I highly recommend doing this tour and especially with Lexi.

I've always done Sandeman Tours in cities that offer them, and they never disappoint; this tour with Alex was no different! You learn so much about the history of Spain, but Alex keeps it very interesting and engaging and he puts in a joke here and there to keep it fresh. At the end he offered to share with everyone an interactive map of Madrid for those interested, which is helpful! Definitely recommend going on a tour with Alex!
