Tour description

  • Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to this fascinating, attractive and alternative walk through the streets of this wonderful and surprising European capital.

  • The idea is to create a tour that has a historical and chronological sense in which the history of the city is learned by following, as far as possible, its development, mixing historical dynamics to more alternative parts (the theme of art street scene in the streets of Lavapiés, the arrival of the first cinema in the capital in 1902 or the importance of flamenco music and culture ).

  • We will start in the Plaza de Juan Goytisolo , which will allow us to have a snapshot of the current structure of the city and some of its most outstanding monuments and places, such as the Prado Museum , the Reina Sofía Art Center and the Retiro Park . We will continue through the neighborhoods of Lavapiés and La Latina , to Plaza de la Paja, Plaza de la Villa and Plaza Mayor , the vibrant heart of Madrid de los Austrias . The Madrid of the Bourbons will embrace us, arriving at the Plaza de Oriente, its gardens, its majestic Royal Palace, and its Cathedral . The tour will not lack details and anecdotes about the foundation of Mayrit (the Arab Madrid) and the iconic construction of the Gran Vía ...

  • This and much, much more. Escape from the typical, and follow me on this adventure... From Mayrit, to Madrid, to heaven!

Nicolò aveva già annullato il medesimo tour in data 5/10/23. Abbiamo deciso di dargli nuovamente fiducia e riprenotare. Tuttavia ha anche oggi cambiato le date del tour 20 minuti prima dell’inizio, creando non pochi disagi. Inaccettabile!

Massima delusione. Avevo programmato alcune attività del viaggio considerando il free tour e il fatto che la qlguida non si sia presentata senza neanche avvisare mi ha causato dei problemi. Mai più con guruwalk e sicuramente lo sconsigliato a tutti gli amici
