3 hours | from €40.00 pp
When it comes to the best of the barrios, Malasaña is certainly a contender for the top spot! This creative local neighbourhood is packed with hipster hangouts and decorated with incredible street art, and you’ll always find locals walking their dogs or enjoying some tapas in the evenings. Explore the barrio with a local and discover traditional bookstores and second hand record shops sitting alongside art associations, and trendy coffee shops that become hipster bars after dark next to classic bars that have been around for decades. Stroll the streets with someone who knows them inside out and will reveal the highlights as well as the hidden gems!

What To Expect

We’ll be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personality and interests so we can assign a like-minded local who can create a bespoke experience for you.

Your Local Host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary and agree a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience you can always change your mind about what you want to do.

Your Local Host may also suggest adjustments or new routes if they feel that there is something just around the corner that you may enjoy, or perhaps if the weather affects your itinerary.

Although you will see the main attractions in the area, your Local Host will also help you to discover the places, things and stories that you won’t find in a guidebook and that make the city unique.
