Hi, my name is Naiara :) Since I was little, curiosities, knowing the reason why of everything that surrounded me and discover the hidden stories of the most common thing in our everyday life have always fascinated me. That is why since I was twelve I started preparing freetours for my parents about what we were about to see in our summer holidays. Watching a painting in a museum is fine, but knowing the story and the reason why it is like that, is extraordinary (believe me, we loose so many details when we ignore the story of the places we go) And you won´t have to worry about language , although I´m from Spain, I have a C1 level of English recognized by Cambridge University! That is why I encourage you to sign up in my freetour, you will discover so many interesting things that you will be left with your mouth open! Also, who doesn´t need interesting facts to tell your neighbour in the elevator of your building?

Tour description

Have you ever stopped to think what is behind the logos of the brands that accompany us in our day to day?
Post office, the Metro, the English Court. . Why did its founders decide that their companies should be represented by those logos? What is your story? How did they come to be the globally recognized multinationals we know today?

  •  If these questions have aroused your curiosity and you are anxious to know the answer, sign up for this Free tour! In it we will talk about why a giant poster of a bottle of wine watches over us in the Puerta del Sol , why the Plaza del Callao is called that (hint; it has nothing to do with a mute) and we will solve one of the most Asked throughout the history of mankind, why does Real Madrid celebrate victories in Cibeles and Atlético in Neptuno?
  •  If, on the contrary, these questions have been indifferent to you, sign up anyway! Maybe you can win a TV contest or win the heart of your crush using one of the (many) (extremely interesting) facts that you will learn in this Freetour.

 I look forward to seeing you on this fun tour!

 Please book the tour at least 2 hours before so I have time to get to the meeting point :)

Naiara es encantadora, es una gran profesional, que hace su tour, como si fuera para ella. Un tour diferente, sobre los logos y marcas publicitarias, que vemos y no le damos importancia, ni sabemos el porque de ellos. No es un tour turístico...totalmente diferente a los tours convencionales. Nos pasaron casi tres horas, sin darnos cuenta. Fenomenal. Un 10.Gracias Naiara por compartirlo.
