“A wonderful way to explore Madrid's hidden corners, its history, food and drink. We were lucky not only to be guided by Cecilia on the first of her revamped Madrid tours, but to share the experience with Gloria, Inez, Sara and Jaime, who were learning about leading the tour in future. Cecilia's knowledge, enthusiasm and friendliness (and likewise her colleagues') made for a very special start to our holiday. Thank you. We will certainly join Urban Adventure tours when we re-visit Madrid or stay in other cities.”

“The tour with Travis was great! As it was only the two of us and Travis, it was like meeting a local showing us his favorite places. We visited four pubs and we liked them all. The beer and the food tasted great, also the portions were quite big. We did some food tours in Berlin, but this one was definitely the best so far! Travis is awesome, we had a great time with him! Thanks again!”

ITINERARY

The day starts by learning about the tragic and fascinating recent history of Cambodia. See the location where journalists camped out in 1975 on the eve of the Khmer Rouge takeover, and the ghostly building that has been left burnt-out and bullet-holed as it stood after the war.

Confront Cambodia's tragic past, on a guided tour of the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, a former school which served as a Khmer Rouge torture centre. Then head out of the city to the Choueng Ek Memorial, where a pagoda made up of some 8,000 human skulls marks the site of one of the infamous Killing Fields.

Finish by sampling some interesting Khmer snacks and exploring how this recent history and politics continue to affect the lives of average Cambodian.
