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
We had a wonderful tour in Madrid with Mariluz. It started off with a mix up on time and date but Mariluz corrected the problem quickly and we were off to see the Royal Palace. She was an expert at maneuvering us around the crowds and pointing out art and details that we would never have seen or known on our own. Then we walked through the old town and enjoyed a lovely refreshment at a historical bar. We really enjoyed our tour and I would recommend her to others.
