Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We spent a delightful two days with Silvia first on a walking tour in downtown Madrid and the next day on a tour to Salamanca and a brief stop in Avila
Silvia is knowledgeable and enthusiastic and made our trip very enjoyable. We look forward to meeting up with Silvia again the next time we visit Spain

With Sylvia as guide we spent half-day on a walking tour of Madrid Old Town and a full day visiting Salamanca using a private-hire vehicle. Both tours were excellent, well organised by Sylvia and we learned so much from this friendly and delightful lady. Sylvia has very detailed knowledge of the history of Spain, particularly in respect of the many places we saw. We were also able to stop briefly at Avila en-route from Madrid to Salamanca, so flexibility in the tour was an added bonus. Her knowledge of the Royal Palace in Madrid brought the place to life, and the photographic opportunities she suggested at Salamanca Cathedral were superb. Sylvia is thoroughly recommended as a guide and we would definitely hope to use her again.

Silvia did an amazing job at showing us the ins and outs of Madrid. Always from a cheerful and fun approach, she showed a very well rounded and thorough knowledge of the city, its history and its culture. She made our tour through the city and the Royal Palace one to remember. We learned so much and just wanted the tour to keep going. 10/10! MUCHAS GRACIAS SILVIA!

Sylvia looks us on a great walk around the city, it was very relaxed, stopping for tapas at good, traditional locations. She talked us through the history of Madrid, the royal families, Spanish traditions, and some of the history behind specific dishes we were eating - why Madrid is so great for seafood, tasting different jamons - and drinks (often made in-house at the places we stopped).

Overall it was a great afternoon and definitely recommended, Sylvia is a fantastic guide, interesting, intelligent, friendly with a great sense of humour, and clear love of travel.

Silvia Romero is a fantastic guide on so many levels. My family of four, with two adult children, hired her for two, four-hour walking tours of Madrid, including visits to the Prado and Royal Palace, along with a visit to Segovia. She is incredibly knowledgable, and also willing to tailor the tours to your interests. She provided additional reading information per our questions, and made suggestions for other cultural experiences such as Flamenco and more. She has a very fun personality, and speaks excellent English. Our entire family immensely enjoyed our time with her. I cannot imagine a guide who can provide a better experience.

We spent two 8 hour days with Sylvia as it was our first trip to Madrid. She is a delightful young woman with very extensive knowledge of the city. We visited all the major museums as well as the Royal
Palace and the major tourist attractions.
There wasn’t a question that she couldn’t answer.
She has a deep understanding of art and history as well as knowing what’s “hot” now.
You couldn’t ask for a more friendly, honest and intelligent person.
We highly recommend her.

Silvia (Un Amigo en Madrid) is amazing showing my father and myself around Madrid, Barcelona and Toledo. Rain or shine she was ready with a plan. Whenever we approached a new location, monument, or restaurant she was ready with explanations and numerous times anticipated my questions. What impressed me most about our time with her is her attention to detail and the little but significant things she would do to make our trip memorable. From the positive experience I give her more than 5 stars, 10 stars, A+++++.

I have never taken a tour guide; I thought I would prefer enjoying the city on my own, reading a guidebook and following my instincts. There is nothing wrong with it, only the fact that I was missing the chance to live a magical experience. I had the privilege to have a visit of the city organized by Silvia, and it was magical. I decided to leave aside all my ideas about tours, to remove any expectations from my mind and to fully trust the Guide: Silvia. It was amazing; she started by asking me a few questions, I was honest and described in detail what I was expecting from the tour. From that moment I trusted her and embarked on a fantastic adventure. I explored the city like never before, her extensive knowledge of the city, its history, culture, and art was enriched with her personal experiences and unique places we visited. If you want to explore Spain like never before I strongly advise you to book a trip with Silvia, I can guarantee that it will be amazing!

I’ve been several times to Madrid, and this 4 hour tour was such a productive one! We got to see a lot, beggining with a quick visit to El Prado to see the 10 best known works of art, then walking and nonstop talking about the history of every corner, like where Miguel de Cervantes used to live in the Cortés District, stoping to eat some tapas, passing by the Plaza Mayor and Del Sol, having some cañas at the Círculo de Bellas Artes rooftop, best view of the city, btw.
Silvia is very knowledgeable and very kind! I will definitely book with her another walking tour when visiting Madrid again!
