What you can expect

Let me guide you on this walking tour to discover the most beloved places by the locals in Madrid!

Together we will unveil the real identity of Madrid through the most traditional taverns and spots that have become part of the historical and cultural heritage. I will introduce you real madrileños who will tell you anecdotes and curiosities.

During our adventure we will (of course!) have the chance of trying tapas paired with an authentic drink from our region.
I'll take you to the three oldest taverns of Madrid where you will try a traditional tapa and local wine tasting in each. These places are loved by all locals, especially because of the friendly staff and amazing food!

And last, but definitely not least Flamenco is part of Madrid tradition and history with more than 200 years of a 'happy marriage'!
It's one of my favourite parts of our heritage and I'll make sure to tell you all about it, away from the touristy traps.
I'll introduce you to emblematic places where the real flamencos always gathers and perform and tell you the stories behind the venues.

So, are you ready to become a true Madrileño? :)

¡Hola! I'm writer and journalist born (fifth generation) in Madrid. I have many hobbies: Flamenco, XIX century literature, the magic Easter Processions in Andalucia, gastronomy... But my real passion is my own country. I'm fascinated by Spain and that includes Madrid where I can spend hours touring my own city.
My Madrid has got a brilliant sense of humor, is vibrant, and so alive. For me, Madrid has the perfect combination of a big cosmopolitan modern city with the tradition and charm of a village.
I can show you the tradition in the ancient taverns and shops from the inside and tell you the stories behind. Of course, I can 100% can personalized your tour.
So let's do it. Experience Madrid like a real Madrileño, and as we say here, From Madrid to Heaven."
