My family is Swiss, but I was born in Madrid and I have also lived in several other European countries like Germany and France. Although I have travelled a lot, my favourite city will always be Madrid and its secret squares, sunny terraces, centenary shops and taverns and most of all its great city life.
Come with me and discover the history and legends of Madrid, the Muslim origins, the charming streets and neighbourhoods, the unique shops, the best tapas and especially the Spanish way of life. We can also have a look over the roofs of Madrid from special viewpoints and taste the authentic gastronomy and wines in town.
Forget about carrying your guidebook and trying to orientate yourself through the city, missing a lot along the way. Let me take you around and plan a wonderful day for you! Avoid the mainstream and let me show you the real face of Madrid. Afterwards, I will give you lots of advice and recommendations for the following days of your stay.
PS: If what you want to see is not included in my list of tours (like the Reina Sofia or Thyssen Museum, Retiro Park, Royal Palace, Aranjuez, Toledo, Lavapies), please send me an email and I will arrange a special tour for you.
