Arkeo Tour was born from an idea of a group of youngs from Andalusia and Madrid who loved its History, culture and heritage. Our team is made up of great professionals with extensive experience in managing of tourist groups and cultural visits in different parts of Spain. Most of us have trained on the street, collaborating in different archaeological sites, art galleries and museums. We consider that our land has great heritage and cultural potential that must be valued for both residents and tourists. We do not believe that transmitting our history is bored. We want you to enjoy it. May you live the experience. And that you impregnate yourself with the vestiges of our past. Join this adventure with us!

Tour description

Travel to the Spanish Golden Age visiting one of the neighborhoods most loved by Madrid residents. All kinds of colorful characters have lived in its narrow streets and bustling squares, many of whom served to inspire the greats of Spanish literature, such as Lope de Vega, Francisco de Quevedo, Luis de Góngora or Miguel de Cervantes himself. Learn with me part of our history and our literature on this guided tour of the so-called Barrio de las Letras, a place where art and talent still breathe. With the help of noblemen, ladies, merchants and priests straight out of the books, we will show you an impressive cultural and leisure offer and a Madrid that you did not know.

Only groups of up to 6 people are allowed in this activity. If you are 7 or more people, you will be asked to pay per person in advance to join the tour.
