Hi Ben,

We are a Spanish firm although we offer global coverage. I am pretty sure we are the biggest guide for 'things to do' within Spain -

http://www.yougodo.com/en/Search.aspx?cc=ES

and of course we have pages for Madrid (along with every other major Spanish city)

http://www.yougodo.com/en/Search.aspx?cc=ES&l=3117735&d=25

The site is totally free for activity providers to add their details and as such contains many smaller operators not found elsewhere.

I hope you consider this worthy addition to this excellent resource.

Cheers



Paul

Thanks for this great info on Madrid. Spain has always attracted me and visiting it has been my childhood dream, specially places like Madrid and Barcelona.

I have just come back from a trip of India, Nepal and Bhutan hopefully we will visit Spain next year.
