Vanessa R.

Madrid, Spain

Hola and Welcome to Madrid. I'm Vanessa and I'm looking forward to showing you the very best of Madrid & surroundings to help you enjoy your trip.

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 places, sunny terraces, centenary shops and taverns, culture 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 nice shops, the best tapas and music and most of all the Spanish way of life. You can also have a look over the roofs of Madrid from well known viewpoints and taste the authentic gastronomy and wines in town.

Forget about carrying your guidebook around 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 Madrid. Afterwards, I will give you a lot of advice and suggestions for the following day.

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.

A Recent Review of this guide

Vanessa felt as if she was part of our family from the start of our tour. It's something special to meet someone and it feels as if you've known them for a long time. Her knowledge of Madrid was excellent and she showed us places that we wouldn't otherwise have ever seen.
