About the tour

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)

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!

Muchas gracias Alexandra por este paseo. Estamos seguros de que nunca se nos olvidará quiénes eran Hipómenes y Atalanta, ni cómo era un corral de comedias, ni las aventuras de Quevedo con sus malas pulgas. Repetiremos seguro!
