With a private tour, you’re the boss!
In addition to offering our daily tours, SANDEMANs NEW Madrid also offers two excellent services. Firstly we’ve now gotten really good at developing unique tours that suit the needs of an individual group perfectly. Secondly we’re really proud of the method of educational entertainment we can offer to school groups, allowing both the teachers and the students to become locals in a fun and engaging way.
Whether you represent a school group looking for “the most charismatic and entertaining guides in the business” (Cosmopolitan Magazine UK, 2005), or need to book a guide who is “more than the usual” for a business client (BBC Television), or simply need a “genuinely informative” trip around the city on your quick visit to German’s capital (Rick Steves 2006), New Madrid Tours has the guides you’re looking for.
The advantage of doing a private tour is simply that you have your own personal tour guide. You can decide where the tour starts from, where it should finish and how long it lasts. But the major advantage of this option is that the guide can cater specifically for your area of interest.
Should you be particularly interested in twentieth century history, you could concentrate on that; if medieval history is more your thing, that’s fine too. You choose! Not interested in the sights or history of Madrid and just want to be shown around the city or quite simply do some shopping, eating or drinking in the best areas, let our private tour team arrange it for you.
With over 100 tours offered daily and 4 million guests served since 2004, we’re one of the biggest walking tour companies in the world.
We guarantee a memorable tour that is out of the ordinary: all at a reasonable price. Our tours are conceived to show you the best of Madrid by foot, but like we say, you’re in charge and we can arrange private cars, busses, boats, and helicopters and almost all of our tours can be done on bike!
Some of our most popular private tours include:

Spanish Civil War: The Siege of Madrid 1936-39
The events of the Spanish Civil War are almost unknown to those outside Spain. Madrid was the place where the Spanish Civil War began and where it met its controversial end. Come see where a failed coup that could have ended democracy in one fell swoop evolved into a conflict that would eventually engulf the entire world. We’ll visit the front lines where Franco’s troops, backed by Hitler and Mussolini, fought against the citizens of Madrid and their Parton: Josef Stalin.
Riding High on the Falangist victory in the Spanish Civil War, Franco strove to bring Spain into the 20th Century. For better and for worse, Fransisco Franco changed the face of Madrid and Spain forever. Follow the history iof fascist Madrid from its origins during a failed coup, through imposing architecture, stories or repression, and Spain’s remarkable transition to democracy. We’ll end with a sobering reflection on the 20th century at Franco’s tomb.
