Tour description

On this tour we will walk through the most emblematic corners of Cádiz and I will tell you the exciting history that surrounds the oldest city in the West, enlivened with curious stories and anecdotes about the city.

Throughout these 2.5 hours you will learn to identify the house of a porter from the Indies, you will discover some gems of our heritage hidden in plain sight and you will know why Cádiz was the only city in Spain where Napoleon could not enter, among them! many other things!

From our meeting point next to the town hall, in the Plaza San Juan de Dios, let me guide you through our 3000 years of history in a dynamic and entertaining way so that you can get to know the Cádiz of today much better and the leading role we had in the past, making a special stop to talk about "La Pepa", the first Spanish Constitution of 1812.

**The tour will depart with a minimum of 5 people

**Dog friendly. You can come accompanied by your pet, since the entire route is outside


If you are a group of 7 or more people, it is necessary that you make the joint reservation, entering the total number of people that you will come since in the case of group reservations, an advance payment of €10 per adult is made.
If the group is divided into several reservations of fewer people but at the beginning of the tour it is detected that it is a group, this payment will still have to be paid in advance.

The reason for this measure is to guarantee payment according to the value of the guide's work.

**The route may be modified. Always looking for the best development of the activity and the best experience for the visitor.

Victoria es toda una profesional y un derroche de conocimientos históricos y culturales. También nos explicó detalles curiosos y anécdotas, además de interactuar con el grupo con gran sentido del humor y amabilidad. Un 10 para Victoria
