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 streets of Madrid will transport us to the Spanish Golden Age, a moment in which the neighborhood of the letters shone with all its splendor and of which today we have remains such as the house of Lope de Vega, Cervantes ... the house of I remain in the one that never lived, the mentideros that worked as a meeting center, the comedy pens where the greatest works represented, even a parish considered the cathedral of the letters and nowadays goes unnoticed. Every corner, street and building has that bohemian air that characterized this neighborhood so much and that even today we breathe. The face and cross of the same neighborhood with a double personality ... neighborhood of letters, or orchards! Do you dare to meet him? (RESERVATION IS NECESSARY TO ASSIST THE VISIT)

Muy interesante y entretenido. Borja con su estusiasmo y simpatía nos contó de manera amena y entretenida sobre el Barrio de las Letras y los autores más ilustres del mismo y la época. Totalmente recomendable y te ayuda a conocer en profundidad lo que fue este barrio tan bonito y emblemático de Madrid.

Fuimos con Borja y nos hizo un tour por el Barrio de las Letras. Hemos pasado mil veces por allí y no teníamos ni idea de la cantidad de historia que hay en sus calles. A pesar del calor nos gustó mu Ho la experiencia y Borja muy simpático.
