Tour description

After your multiple requests, and after having continued researching and updating information...


Never before in the history of the world has it been the case that men and women from all over volunteered to fight in a war that was not theirs. People of 50 nationalities came to Spain to pursue their goal. They are the International Brigades .

Join us in an Experience in which we will visit one of the most relevant points of participation of this body of volunteers: the recently opened University City . One of the enclaves that suffered the most from the consequences of the fighting, being practically reduced to rubble and where Brigades such as the XII or the XV stood out.

Experience, feel, live what it was like to have the opposing troops face to face, day after day, less than a hundred meters away and without being able to move an centimeter, without being able to advance a single inch of land, while the shells explode around you and the bullets whistle over your head.

A trench of Babel in which fifty languages ​​were spoken.

La organización del tour me parece espléndida. Están muy pendientes y te dan mucha información antes de acudir. Por otro lado, Víctor es uno de los guías más divertidos que he conocido, se me ha pasado el tour volando. ¡Estoy segura de que vuelvo!

La visita de la Guerra Civil Española con Víctor ha sido una experiencia sumamente enriquecedora y reveladora. El recorrido que nos hizo el guía fue excepcional. Su pasión y su conocimiento sobre el tema nos cautivó a todos desde el primer momento. Recomiendo esta visita a cualquiera que quiera comprender mejor este período tan interesante y desconocido a la vez.

El tour con Victor fue genial, uno de los mejores tours que he hecho nunca. Divertido, entretenido, y con datos de calidad, se nota que sabe muchísimo de historia! Lo recomiendo100%

Un episodio de nuestra historia poco tratado. Víctor hace que te adentres en él y, lo más importante, con absoluta OBJETIVIDAD, fundamental en un historiador. Gracias a Víctor y a todo MAD por su labor de difusión y por cómo te ayudan e informan desde que haces la reserva, hasta el final del tour. Un 10 para MAD
