Hello, I'm Irene and I want to show you my province. I've started more than twenty years ago in this tourism business, designing routes around my city and accompanying groups. Although I have done many things in these twenty years, what I like most is to show my city (wich I love) so that you can all get to know it through my eyes.

Tour description

Accompanied by our official guides, on this visit you will discover everything that you cannot miss in León.

From its Roman origins to Gaudí's work in the city, we will show you our favorite places and bring you closer to our traditions, our festivals and everything we love about our city.
On our walk we will visit the old part of the city, stopping at the most emblematic places. In our guided tour we combine the history of León and its art with gastronomy, festivals, customs and, of course, we are not going to forget to tell you about our favorite places for tapas.
We are going to start the tour in the Plaza de la Catedral and from there we will go to the Barrio Húmedo , one of the most outstanding places for tapas in the city. Other most relevant points are the Plaza Mayor, the Casa Botines, the Palacio de los Guzmanes or the Royal Collegiate Church of San Isidoro. Here we will finish the visit and we will leave you right next to the Romantic Quarter , one of the places where you can enjoy tapas and Leonese gastronomy.

Important information for the traveler:
- This visit does NOT include the interior of the cathedral . If you wish to visit it or take other routes, you can consult our guides who will discuss the available options.
 - All our visits are made using a system of
individual radio guides that are completely disinfected after each use.
- The route may vary slightly depending on specific incidents that make it difficult to visit (works, street markets, etc.).
 - In the free tour
reservations are not allowed for more than 6 people traveling together. If this is your case, contact us so that we can tell you what options there are.
 - In case of not reaching a minimum number of attendees, an alternative schedule will be proposed as close as possible to the selected time.

Teníamos una reserva para dos personas pero conocía a otras personas en el tour y el guía no permitió que hiciéramos el tour. La única opción que nos dio fue que pagáramos por el mismo, Tenía más gente sin reserva que quería ubicar en el tour y creo que por eso no se preocupó lo más mínimo en decirnos que no podíamos hacerlo y dejarnos tirados. No recomiendo para nada la experiencia.
