I am graduated in Tourism (University of Zaragoza) and an expert of Spanish History and Art. I am also graduated in Economics (University of Zaragoza) and in Foreign Languages at the University of Poitiers, France. After some years travelling within Europe guiding groups from Spain and America, I decided to become Local Guide of Madrid, the city that adopted me more than 23 years ago! I love Madrid. It is a very interesting city and very open to everyone. Very soon, you feel you are part of it.
I have been working as a Local Guide the last 18 years. I guide in all the most important museums in Madrid and I have the License to guide inside all the Monuments that are part of the National Trust or Heritage (Patrimonio Nacional), as the Royal Palace in Madrid.
I feel very happy because I love my job. It is very interesting to show the treasures and the way of life of my city to people coming all around the world. I have provided tours to very famous people from Hollywood, like Morgan Freeman or Robert Downey Jr. !
In short, if you love history, paintings, culture, and food, then be sure that you will be happy in Madrid. I will be here waiting for you.
A Recent Review of this guide
Mariluz is a fabulous and fun guide. Today we were delighted with our tour to Toledo with her. We had an equally great day in Segovia yesterday with Mariluz. She is well versed and knowledgeable about all the site and loves to share the history in a way that makes it memorable and entertaining. Of special note was how thoughtful she was about our stamina for walking up hills and accommodated us with taxis when walking became too much. A great experience all around!
