The tour was very well presented and the guide was extremely knowledgable about the artwork, general history of street art, and the context of the artwork in the local area. It was a great way to see a different side to the city and understand the artwork you may just otherwise pass by. Highly recommended.

Excellent experience! Well trained guide!

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.

Great way to see more of Madrid

Really interesting walk through a part of Madrid most tourists don't see. Madrid has a great street art culture, and it is fun to see it with someone who knows the culture and the artists and does it himself. We also got to see a former abandoned lot that has been turned into a community garden. If you want to get beyond monuments and museums, I highly recommend this tour.
