I was impressed. Our guide was charismatic and knowledgeable. He shared what he knew, mentioning the artists by name and their trademarks. Many of us asked specific questions and he was able to go into depth when answering. The size of the group and pacing was great. It was

I decided to do this tour instead of going to the Prado! We have a lot of Street Art in Melbourne where I live so thought it would be interesting to learn more in another country. What I didn't realise was I'd also be learning more about Lavapies, a socially diverse

Patricia, and the rest of Cooltourspain's team, really appreciate your kind comment. As social activists we are, we try to interpret what the artists paint in the streets. Lavapiés is obviously the opposite from Prado Museum, and our guides proudly explain what are the problems existing in the neighborhood! We hope that you liked our service & keep on visiting cities through its street art and graffiti. Just like you did in Madrid, our beautiful and colorful city. Cheers,
