Madrid: Street Art Tour with Local Graffiti Hunter
- Duration: 2 hours
This tour is great for getting to know Madrid’s history in a short amount of time. We got to walk around like locals getting to know the various neighborhoods of Madrid and also got to see tourist highlights (like the palace) towards the end. Only gave it 4 stars instead of five because it felt a bit rushed and focused a bit too much on technicalities in the history, but it was still a fun and informative tour.
This was a wonderful chance to experience a part of the city that most visitors never have a chance to see. Javier was most gracious. Our Spanish is below acceptable but he was warm and welcoming and ensured that we felt accepted. Our teenage girls embraced the tour. More thoughtful and alternative options outside of the usual are a welcomed addition when experiencing Madrid, or any city.
We loved this Street Art tour in Lavapiés (neighbourhood near Atocha station), the tour guide was well trained and knew every piece of art and artist he presented. Very well done and we liked the way the tour was built, it started at a well known train/metro station (easy to find) and finished elsewhere, at another metro station.
Fabulous experience. When you review the art from a local perspective and expert, you learn so much and appreciate the work that goes into it. You will view the streets differently after being on a tour. Most enjoyable and Patricia’s knowledge and passion on the subject are fantastic.
We had a fabulous tour with Patricia. She is articulate, knowledgeable, and good humored. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with her. Our eyes are now opened to the street art of Madrid.
