I loved our guide Yvonne! She listened to the kids, responded to their questions, asked them questions about their life back home and simply built rapport. She shared just enough history without pushing it or overwhelming them with information. The two stops we made were excellent ‘hands-on’ activities that captured the kids’ attention and the wine for the adults was an added plus! Overall, because of Devour Tour’s experience I want to go back for more.
This was the perfect tour for families. Yvonne made the history interesting for a 9 and 6 year old. She answered every question (even the ones that were not about Madrid) and kept the kids engaged. The kids’ "passport" books gave them a mission, hunting for the listed statues and other items. Snack spots gave us a chance to sit for a minute and enjoy and learn about the local cuisine. I highly recommend the tour. Yvonne, you are wonderful.
I was with two pre-teens (10 & 11 year old) and was worried about how to entertain them while in the city of Madrid. Yvonne’s scavenger hunt & her inside "secrets" kept the excitement going. Three hours and it felt I got a "whole" view of Madrid. It was great for me, my parents and the two tweens. Highly recommend! The privacy, the top-notch tasting places, and customization well worth the price for traveling with kids who have never been to Europe!
What to Expect on Your Tour
You know that Madrid is a magical city—but to your child, it seems like just another European capital. Bring the city to life for the little ones in your family on this private tour, especially thought out for 4 through 12 year olds. Get ready for games, wonder-filled stories and even a little Spanish practice. While exploring, we’ll make stops for two kid-approved snacks: Spanish-style ham sandwiches and chocolate and churros.
This private walking tour explores the city’s historic center. We’ll pass through Madrid’s main sights: the Royal Palace, Plaza de la Villa, San Miguel Market, Plaza Mayor and the Puerta del Sol. Your dynamic guide will keep your children engaged throughout with stories of Spanish history. Think explorers, kings and queens, princes and princesses, knights, artists, and more! Kids will see Madrid as never before, especially while looking all over the city for as many uses of our symbol (our beloved oso, or bear) as they can find!
About one hour into the tour, it’s time for a mid-morning snack. We’ll make our first stop for a tasting of prized Iberian ham and other cured meats at a 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 (and eating!) Spanish sandwiches, called bocadillos. Meanwhile, they’ll 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. Coffee and tea are also on offer as a pick me up before continuing the day. And don’t worry, we won’t ruin your appetite for lunch—but we will give you lots of tips for where to grab a bite after the tour.
When it’s time to say goodbye, your child will leave with a new understanding of Madrid—and a memory they’ll remember for years to come!
And as with all Devour Madrid tours, you’ll receive our Devouring Madrid guide. Packed with all our favorite places to eat and drink in the city, put down your guidebook and get ready to experience Madrid like a local!
