What you can expect

I love Madrid and I want you to fall in love with the city too. How? By showing you hidden places, stories, and it's history with humor, the best way to enjoy the experience.

Get to see the best monuments that the city has to offer and discover some cool spots that my beloved city has to offer. During our walk, you'll get a sense of the many centuries of history and culture, that gives Madrid a unique charm.

Visit the oldest part of the city, called “Madrid de los Austrias” (Royal Habsburgs) and let me show you the oldest bakery in the city. I'll tell you more about our typical sweets and what not to miss while in Madrid.

Next, hear the tales behind Puerta del Sol and admire the opulent Royal Palace, the biggest Royal Palace in Europe, with 3.500 rooms. You won't miss the Almudena Cathedral and its neoclassical architecture.

Afterward, we cross to Plaza de España to have a look at the most important statue we have here, the one dedicated to our best writer, Cervantes, and his most important book, Don Quixote. Your tour ends here with a little surprise from my side. Won't tell you more than this, but I'm sure you'll love it.

If there's something that you would like to add on this tour please let me know. I'm more than happy to personalize this experience for you.

I am a Journalist and a teacher of Spanish Language and Literature. In 2004 I started receiving foreign guests at home (mainly female guests). I normally tour them around the city, let them try the best Spanish dishes, tell them about our history and culture and, even, teach them our language. And I love it!!!!

I really enjoy being a sort of ambassador of my city. Since then, I have read a lot about my city and even attended some course about it's museums, so I want to share all the knowledge aquired with you. Are you ready to fall in love with this city?

Let me be your host too :)"
