Excellent experience!!! The guide provided insightful knowledge about street art while making the bicycle ride a fun one. In my group, there were a few participants that were below average in cycling and that was a challenge due to the traffic of Madrid and some uphill routes. The guide adjusted the tour to accommodate as much as possible though. So it is recommended for participants of this tour to be familiar with city cycling to truly maximize the experience.

The Street Art Tour with Gerardo was a very enjoyable and educational experience for us! We brought our dachshund along and he was also quite happy with the tour. The walk is quite manageable for little dogs. Would definitely recommend it for anyone looking to learn more about the local culture and check out some great street art. After this tour, we started noticing a lot more of it around the city.

Wonderful, the best tours and moments that I have lived with a guide in any trip that I have had without a doubt have been with Elena. My 8-year-old son and I were not only delighted, but today we have a great friend and the best person to introduce families to Madrid and all the wonders it has, especially its museums. Thanks Elena!

Elena was great, very friendly and super fun, specially with the children. As we have two children (6 and 10 y/o), we needed to make some stops and walk slowly sometimes, and she was great. Very nice tour, strongly recommend.

We loved it, Maria Jose the guide prizes a book on history, architecture, we really liked it! If we return we repeat fixed.
