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!

About the Tour

We are concerned that you are spending this Valentine's Day alone. For this reason, we have prepared a guided tour specially designed for singles in Madrid.

Singles are all welcome!

Learn, together with a local heritage expert guide, the history of the romantic public park of Quinta de los Molinos, an old recreational estate owned by the Count of Torre Arias, which passed into the hands of the famous architect and councilor Cort Botín, who transformed into the wonder that we can contemplate today.

Immerse yourself with us in a true Mediterranean garden and know the species that they grow in it. If you come between the end of January and the beginning of April, the almond blossom forest will amaze you. It's quite a show!

Did you know that the scientific name of almond trees is Prunus dulcis and that their flowers appear on the branches even before their leaves? The current term comes from the Latin amygdala and this, possibly, from the Greek ἀμυγδάλη In many cultures of the past the almond tree is considered a divine tree.

During the tour we can admire the park's pond, the Clock House or the Palace House , and, of course, the mills that give the Quinta its name.

In addition, to get into the atmosphere we will know the historical origin of Valentine's Day. Did you know that, according to tradition, part of his relics are kept in a church in Madrid? You cannot stop visiting it on these dates!

The tour will end in front of the Casa-Palacio de la Quinta 90 minutes after it begins. And who knows? You may have met someone special during the itinerary ...

Of course, this guided tour is also designed for couples or families, and you can also come with your pet!

Come and have a fun time with us!

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: Subway exit Suances. You will recognize our guides by their striking red shirt. (It is recommended to arrive at the meeting point at least 15 minutes before the start of the activity).
