About

I am a passionate Tour Guide in Madrid Spain. I was born in Argentina, although my background is Spanish. I am so in love with Spanish culture, history and arts. I especially like guiding the painting museums of Madrid (Prado M, Reina Sofia M and Thyssen Bornemisza M). I did a degree in Tourism at the University and I speak English, Spanish and Portuguese. I have been working as a Licensed Tour Guide for the last 20 years as a full time job, first in Buenos Aires and then in Madrid, meeting people from all over the world. I have travelled to over 22 countries. Being a tour guide is not just a job for me, it’s a way of living and I really enjoy it. Beyond giving information to my tourists, I always try to tell the stories in a funny way, through anecdotes and making them feeling the vibes and have an unforgettable experience of the local atmosphere.
