Unique ways to take a tour of Madrid

Madrid is full of interesting places to visit. These places are well known to both the locals as well as the millions of people who travel to the capital of Spain. There are many traditional and unique ways to discover a city as large as Madrid. Some of its interesting tours are so diverse that visitors can have even more fun exploring the capital. 

A very unique way to take a tour of Madrid is by riding on the Tuk Tuk. The Indian-inspired scooter is named Tuk Tuk because of the noise that the engine makes. The Vespas have three wheels and can carry up to 3 people. 

Although the scooters were an initiative launched some time ago, they still continue to attract tourists. They will take you to some of the most interesting places in the capital. They can also be hired for a few hours to celebrate special occasions like birthdays or stag parties.

Another unique and exciting way to get around Madrid is on a Beer Bike. This is a great way for up to 16 people to explore the city and pedal simultaneously. Although the bike is assisted by an electric motor, there is still a driver who is responsible for directing and stopping the vehicle.

In addition, the Beer Bike is equipped with a bar and plenty of beer for the passengers. You will be served cold drinks whilst visiting some of the most interesting areas of the city such as Atocha, Paseo del Prado, Plazas de Neptuno, Cibeles, and la Puerta de Alcalá. 

Another unique tour that's offered by the company Segway comes in the form of eco bikes. The bikes consist of two wheels and are easy to navigate. The interesting tour will take you through Madrid de los Austrias, which is the most historic area of ​​the capital and represents the true origin of the city.

The Segway tour includes places like Plaza Mayor, la de Oriente, Almudena Cathedral, Royal Palace ( Palacio Real, el Teatro Real), Royal Theatre and the Temple of Debod, among others.

Finally, to get a bird's eye view of Madrid, you have the option of going on a cable car. Since 1969, visitors have been able to fly over the most historic areas of the city and see many monuments, parks, and gardens from a different perspective. 

With 80 cabins that run continuously for about 3 kilometres between Paseo de Pintor Rosales and Casa de Campo, it is no wonder that Madrid's cable car has become a favourite for visitors. So if you want to watch Madrid's stunning sunsets, take a ride on a cable car today!
