Just south of the sprawling campus of the Complutense
University of Madrid, Arguelles exudes a fast-paced,
collegiate vibe. The main street, Calle Princesa, is
filled with twenty-somethings rushing between classes
and errands, meeting up with classmates, and grabbing
cheap beers and cheap eats. This is a prime shopping
spot where the major Spanish clothing and department
store chains are less busy than their downtown

These are private tours so you are generally with a group you know. The theory is that you run at the pace of the slower members. You don't have a mixed group of people you don't know. I suggest you contact John and ask... More
