Private Guides

At Madrid & Beyond, we believe that a great local guide is the key to getting under the skin of the places you travel to and having a truly rewarding travel experience. We’ve spent more than 20 years hand-picking the very finest guides in Spain and more recently Portugal.

To quote a happy client from last summer, “your guides were personable, friendly, and above all, so passionate about their country with guests that their enthusiasm overflowed like water from a ruptured fire hydrant!” Many of our top guides now feel part of the Madrid & Beyond family and that ultimately benefits you, the traveler.

With their knowledge, local connections, good humor and flexibility our local guides ensure for a fun and fascinating insight into their home town.

Whether you seek to explore each city’s main monuments and museums or want a more authentic local experience, we always aim to match the guide to your tastes and preferences. Our guides sometimes play host to visiting heads of states and senior foreign dignitaries. We can’t overstate how important a great guide is.

In addition to local licensed guides, we like to complement these experts with other local personalities who can provide something a little more specialist or quirkier. We collaborate with an eclectic group of professionals including authors, art experts, artisans, boat owners, local chefs, musicians, a radio personality, artists, food critics, bullfighting experts, wine sommeliers and so on who often provide a unique insight into the local culture.
