Diego A.

madrid, Madrid, Spain

I was born in Madrid 45 years ago (1972) in a ten children family.

None of us is shy, and this is an advantage to develop my passion, which is showing the city of Madrid to my customers.

I studied business economics at the University and had worked in Multinational companies for more than 15 years. At that time, Marketing was my passion, and I was proud to launch really big and successful advertising campaigns for well known international brands.
Some years ago, I decided to give up the multinationals world and started to study history, culture and traditions of Madrid and Spain. My intention was to stir up the way guided tours were made.

Knowing a city is much more than discovering great places or taking nice pictures.
If you decide to go with me, then you will learn not only the history and culture of Madrid but also our traditions, the way we connect each other, how we eat and why Madrileños and Spanish people in general, are considered happier than the rest of the world. You will learn about our history, culture, economy and traditions without losing the perspective to see the city as a local, and not as a tourist.
That would be my intention, and I promise to make my best to make you fall in love with Madrid and the Spanish culture.

A Recent Review of this guide

We asked for a tour of places not on the normal list - and Diego presented a wonderful view of neighborhoods outside of the historic center. It was memorable and special in every way - Diego treated us to a churro and chocolate - can't believe I was ready to leave Spain after one month without trying this confection! Diego is a delight and full of fascinating stories and historic nuggets.
