We are a young team that left Spain in 2009 and we are in London to create this beautiful project. At the request of our "walkers" we grew up in Paris, Dublin, Berlin, Malaga, Cordoba and Budapest, teaching these cities to thousands of Spanish speakers. We are professional guides and we are madly in love with every corner of the cities we teach.

Tour description

Enjoy with us an essential tour of Salamanca to learn all the details of its main corners, such as the iconic Plaza Mayor , its renowned and ancient University or the Casa de las Conchas , while we tour the historic center of the city and learn why The city is known as Rome the Girl or the Golden City .

We will delve into the history and peculiarities of the city with a unique walk through its squares and streets. We will walk through the Plaza de las Agustinas Recoletas or Compañía Street , and we will observe how the monumental complexes in its surroundings certify that we are facing two locations of great relevance in the past.

What differences exist between the Minor Schools and the Major Schools of the University of Salamanca? We will discover every detail of this almost ancient institution and understand why the city is famous for its good university atmosphere.

If you are able to locate the famous frog on the façade of the University, we will continue until we see the majestic Cathedral of Salamanca ... or should we say cathedrals? We will learn the details of the Old Cathedral and the New Cathedral before ending our visit in the cozy Plaza de Anaya .

Carlos ha sido un guía excepcional. Combina muy bien la historia del lugar con datos curiosos y divertidos, con una forma de narrar que atrapa. Las casi dos horas que hemos estado con él se han pasado más rápido de lo que nos gustaría, ha hecho la visita realmente amena. Se nota que sabe de lo que habla y disfruta haciéndolo. ¡Gracias, Carlos😁!
