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

Do you want to get to know Aranjuez and discover every detail of its noble history?

Book now and let yourself be surprised by this cultural landscape declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO!

During the tour we will enjoy this wonderful place, crossed by the Tagus and Jarama rivers. We will know the places where kings and princes enjoyed their country residence par excellence during long stays. In addition, we will understand the reason that led the Spanish Crown to take an interest in this town and start a process of remodeling and beautification.

Our guide will show you the incredible monuments of the city such as the Royal Palace , the Prince's Gardens , the Church of San Antonio de Padua, the Island Garden or the Godoy Palace.

We will discover statues, mythology, plant species from the five continents or the royal felucas . We will also visit the Estanque de los Chinescos , one of the most romantic places in the Community of Madrid .

The route will allow us to imagine what life was like for monarchs and their families. In addition, we will talk about the most important events that took place, such as the Mutiny of Aranjuez . We will also discover curiosities and love affairs that were forged in the most remote places. If the statues could talk… well, the guide better speak.
