Overview of the tour in Madrid

During our route, we will visit some of the main monuments and buildings that were erected to honor Franco's victory in the Moncloa District. We will go into the Parque del Oeste to locate the forts that are still standing and that served the rebels to attack the city continuously. We will go up to the Temple of Debod, where formerly the rebel Cuartel de la Montaña was located, and from there, we will be able to see Cerro Garabitas, one of the places from where the center of Madrid was bombarded with howitzers.

We will also visit the Headquarters of Count Duque, who remained loyal to the Republic until the end, and, later, we will walk to places that served to shelter the most precious assets of churches and palaces or air-raid shelters to protect citizens from the bombs. We will arrive at the old Pious Schools of San Antón, which served as a Czech and a prison during the 30s, and we will end our tour in Madrid's Gran Vía, next to the Telefónica Building, from whose roof the Republican side monitored the Francoist advances through the Casa de Campo.

Things to note

The crisis caused by the coronavirus has forced all businesses to transform their products and services in order to offer the highest levels of safety, responsibility, and quality to their customers.

Therefore, in accordance with state and regional regulations, from Arkeo Tour® we have implemented 6 essential and mandatory measures in all our activities:

1) Our guided tours are carried out only with small groups (maximum 6 people including the guide). In this way, we achieve a better organization and management of the group and a separation of at least 2 meters between each person.

2) Our itineraries have been designed to avoid possible crowds and escape from confined spaces. In addition, they are one-way tours to avoid crossing with other groups. Our guides coordinate live to share information on less crowded itineraries.

3) All of our guides have been trained in health risk prevention and the fight against coronavirus. The person in charge of the guides and the person in charge of customer service make up the Arkeo Tour® risk management committee and carry out daily monitoring of the safety measures.

4) In all our guided tours we use voice transmission and amplification equipment. In this way, we guarantee the highest quality in the guide's explanations and we can maintain a safe distance between group members.

5) Our team uses approved masks in all our activities and is carried out in daily control of the temperature of each of the guides. Likewise, we will have hydroalcoholic gel for the use of all our users.

6) We have completely digitized the reservation service, thus avoiding the transfer of documents. The reservation confirmation can be downloaded from any mobile phone to show the guide at the beginning of the visit. The sending of brochures and information is now also done completely telematically.

Free Cancellation

You are free to cancel a booking anytime. We kindly remind you to cancel bookings you cannot arrive for. Being reported as absent decreases your customer level points and the benefits you can enjoy.
