Get to know the person behind the tour

Alfonso M.

Madrid, Spain

Hola. Mi name is Alfonso. I am a passionate 26 years old guide from Madrid.

I have been guiding for almost 5 years all over Spain and Portugal , giving different kinds of tours as both a local guide and tour leader.
I have studied business and tourism and I have been professional athlete.

WHY AM I GUIDING?

Since I was a kid I have always loved knowing new places. I enjoy improvising within those new cities and discovering new places along the way. I am curious about everything.
I consider myself to be enthusiastic, knowledgeable, deep and open minded person.
I am a people person. I love getting to know new people and learning from them.
I love to travel anywhere and anyway.
I have lived in Germany and I have worked and studied abroad in many different locations.

When I had a surgery on my hip I had to stop playing sports and start from scratch. I began thinking "what do I like and what do I do well?". My friends would always ask me things like: Where should we go for dinner? Would you come with me to the Prado Museum ? Alfonso, How do we get to this place or that?

I have always been interested in history, gastronomy and art : the roots of any place culture. The way we the humans interact with the environment.

When thinking about my hobbies and these facts about myself I decided that guiding could be something that could appeal to me. Luckily for me, it worked out.

Being a tour-guide is a lot being like a student. I am always studying new things, preparing new activities for the tours and learning from people I meet. I started guiding in the tricky city centre of Madrid and afterwords in other cities, museums, palaces etc.

In my tours I love to show the real deal of the places we visit, to have local experiences and if possible to interact with locals. I don't like to ignore controversial topics. To go often off the beaten truck.

I invite you to do a tour with me , I would be more than happy showing you my city. During a tour with me, we will learn from each other and our different backgrounds. I am flexible and able to customize tours.

Thank you for your time reading this.
