What you'll do
Madrid is not one of the great monumental or historical capitals of the world. Maybe it's not even "cool". However, it is one of the most appreciated by tourists. How can it be? The secret is in the lifestyle. The greatest heritage of the madrileños (residents of Madrid) is our social life, with the bars as the pivotal framework of it. A good wine or a caña and something to put in your mouth must be present. But gastronomy is often just a complement to the social event that involves meeting in a bar to chat and spend a relaxed time. Unfortunately, many of Madrid's most traditional bars and taverns are disappearing in recent years. But there are still some open, witnesses of the history and life of the city, keeping a great atmosphere inside. Come with me to visit some of them, each with their own identity and specialties. In addition, we will take advantage of the experience to know more about some of the most traditional barrios (districts) of the city. A visit to Madrid is not complete without discover where the true soul of the city is hidden.
Geographer. Official tourist guide. "Madrileño" born and bread. Studying geography has allowed me to develop a broad vision: it is impossible to understand the reality of any place without taking a look at its location and history I am quite critical of the current tourism model, in which there are more and more tourists but fewer travelers. Sometimes the best trips are the nearest. I know Spain very well from a broad perspective and, without a doubt, its great treasure is diversity. The proposal of my experience is to show you Madrid as I would with a friend.

Where you'll be
We will visit three old bars of Madrid located in different neighborhoods. We will choose the bars according to those specialties that the group prefers to taste. Optionally we can go to a fourth place to have a drink, but out of price. Groups will be of maximum 6 people, for convenience, and for not filling the bars with a big group of tourists.
