    What to Expect on Your Tour

    Discover Madrid’s historic city center on a family-friendly walking tour with an expert guide. Our Madrid for Kids tour is specially designed for kids ages 6 to 14, with adapted activities and conversation topics for each age group. You can even add on our language learning activities if your kids are interested in practicing their Spanish!

    The walking tour explores the city’s beautiful historic center, passing through Madrid’s main sights: The Royal Palace, Plaza de la Villa, San Miguel Market, Plaza Mayor and the Puerta del Sol. The fun and dynamic tour will keep your children engaged throughout with stories of Spanish history– explorers, kings and queens, princes and princesses, knights, artists, and more. For young children, activities and games may include searching for the symbol of Madrid throughout the tour– our beloved “oso” bear!

    About one hour into the tour, we’ll make our first stop for a tasting of the best Iberian ham and cured meats at a traditional, family-run ham shop. Adults and children will enjoy a beverage of choice (cava, wine, beer, soft drinks, or water) and kids will learn the art of making Spanish sandwiches, called “bocadillos” as they learn all about Spanish culture and how kids their own age live in Spain.

    Towards the end of the route, you’ll make your second food stop at Chocolatería San Ginés, the city’s most famous spot for piping hot churros and chocolate. You’re welcome to have a coffee or tea as a pick me up before continuing the day.
