Well meet Jose – your virtual personalized local tour guide who will accompany you on your journey of discovery in Madrid. It is just like having your own private tour guide walking alongside you. Wherever you are in the City ( and it is conveniently divided by neighbourhood) , Jose will be able to tell you interesting facts and anecdotes about what you are seeing and walking past. So next time you are wondering up and down Huertas – switch him on and let Jose tell you all about who drank here, who lived there as well as a myriad of little known treasures that will amuse, inform and interest even the least curious amongst us.
