When I first visited Madrid 10 years ago, I was impressed! Bourbon's wide promenades and majestic buildings around Plaza de Cibeles amazingly contrasted with tiny medieval streets from the times of the Habsburgs. People around all seemed happy, the sound of Spanish caressed my hearing and the sun my skin.
Therefore, 5 years ago, when my boyfriend asked me to move to Madrid, I didn't hesitate a second.
My love to this city was growing every day I walked around exploring its secrets, every day I read about its history, every day I enjoyed myself out eating tapas with my Spanish friends. It didn't take long until I felt like "madrileňa" and started working as a guide. I just couldn't hold myself back from telling all I've learned to the others!
Since then, I have guided from couples, through families, to groups of 50 people around this royal capital of Spain. There have been hundreds of travellers who understood its history, its culture and saw its hidden gems with me.
And today, it's your turn. Are you ready to see the real Madrid? I am very flexible and happy to adapt my tours to your needs. Just leave me a message ;)

Alex is an excellent tour guide. Very smart and knowledgeable. Great personality- she is energetic and funny. She had lots of fun little stories that would normally be difficult to learn as a tourist. Would highly recommend!
