Travellers are nowadays searching for unique experiences. It happends that in our country the GDP (Gross Domestic Product) has recently increased because of the tourism. We can observe as major travel companies have started offering activities in town, but how many of them are service providers of Madrid local tours? How many of those projects do count in their teams with graffiti artists who were born and raised in the country? Cooltourspain is a social, cultural and educational idea which offers daily activities around the street art community. Do you know who are the guys leading these activities and what do they offer? Let’s check some examples and discuss about them.
How do I recognize if these Madrid local tours are worth enough?
There are several key factors to decide whether an activity was worth or not. We always recommend to answer some of the following questions:
- Was your guide punctual?
- Was it easy to purchase the product online?
- Were these Madrid local tours informative and interesting?
- Did the guide connect excelently with the group?
- Were all participants engaged in the activity?
If you answered YES to all these questions, then you should know that the experience was worth enough as to recommend it to others and even tip your guide. Did you read the reviews that our past guests wrote on our social network channels? Do not forget to visit our Facebook and Tripadvisor accounts, please.
What neighborhoods do the Madrid local tours visit?
It is very important for us to take our guests to the neighborhoods that they wouldn’t explore on their own. Did you find touristic information about Lavapies and Malasaña? These two chic neighborhoods best represent the problems about gentrification, a concept which is now hitting cities from all over the world.
Apart from that, Madrid local tours also discuss about the society and how it is responding to the different daily life situations that are presented. Have you seen the graffiti in Calle Embajadores, 46 at La Canica? This community project once served as a bank, but it now works as a bank of time (time bank). A place to exchange your skills (3 hours of your time, for the 3 hours of other people’s skills).
Why should you participate in our Madrid local tours?
After almost 3 years of serving the street art tours in town, we got a conclusion! Our guests prefer exploring the city alternatively than doing it in the “common” way. Madrid local tours have been carefully designed in order to provide an unforgettable experience. Have you ever heard about La Tabacalera, Esto es una Plaza or Parque de las siete tetas? Our graffiti guided visits in Malasaña also explore the history of a global movement that is now spreading all around the world, joining communities together.
