My name is Alexandra, I created HistoAventura four years ago with the idea of ​​bringing Madrid to the people of Madrid and being able to show the city to those people who have lived here for 50 years and don't know the history of the streets they go through every day; and with that philosophy we continue. 80% of our clients are from Madrid looking for weekend plans and we go through the neighborhoods together. That makes us have a good customer loyalty but we move away from the tourist from outside, hence the need to look for platforms like this to be able to reach that tourist who comes to Madrid for a couple of days. I studied guide, information and tourist assistance; In addition to having been working for many years in the tourism sector in different parts of the world and types of business. My colleagues Christian and Marta also have the guide module and Óscar and Alba are historians, therefore we also escaped from the famous "work intrusion" that is heard so much in the free tour. HistoAventura is formed by a group of qualified guides, historians, and great lovers of the city of Madrid. Our desire to spread love for this city

Tour description

The fratricidal war that ravaged our country less than a century ago also left testimony to memory in our capital.
Forts and barricades were erected on the same ground on which we walked through the center of the city , trenches and trenches were dug, and hymns and poems were composed that should not be forgotten.

On this route we will rebuild the Madrid that witnessed that fierce battle without quarter, of which there are still vestiges around Puerta del Sol, Gran Vía and Parque del Oeste.
A route that will not leave anyone unmoved and in which we invite you to take part.

Tal y como está planteado, no aconsejo seguir este tour. Borja lo hizo estupendamente y aportó datos super interesantes, pero el tour es realmente muy aburrido. Apenas ves sitios. La excusa de la parada en el lugar es un dato histórico que conlleva 20 minutos de charla y unas cuantas fotos en una tableta, que apenas se ven. No es un freetour, es una conferencia en movimiento que resulta aburrida y cansada, pero no por culpa del 'gurú', sino por el planteamiento del tour. Y el camino entre lugar y lugar es un paseo por las obras de Madrid o por la testada Gran Vía detrás del 'gurú' que va contando anécdotas solo a los que van a su lado, porque no tenemos auriculares y no le oímos. Desaconsejable

Esta experiencia con Histo Aventura es muy interesante. El guru sabe un montón de datos y para aprovecharla a tope hace falta conocer unos acontecimientos de la Guerra Civil antes de la visita
