Hello everyone! I'm Rubén, official tour guide and guru of Madrid;), I'm 26 years old, I like to be called Rubens, I consider myself a "cat" (native to Madrid). I have a degree in tourism and I am half way through history and at the moment I am self-employed. I started to fall in love with the profession in 2019 thanks, in part, to my friend Aurora, but from 2020 I worked with arkeotour, which is a company that also helped me a lot, and then in 2021 I started doing the tours on my own and try. You must take into account that Madzguía has been active for a short time and many times the minimum number of attendees necessary is not reached, starting, as you well know, is not easy at all. I am a fun guy, I consider myself close to people and I love exchanging opinions with travelers, since they can bring you experiences without having traveled outside of Madrid. I have traveled a bit around Europe and that has helped me a bit to love this job, because in every corner there is always a story to tell and I think that Madrid is a perfect city to teach all kinds of routes. It is a city full of life where everyone feels at home, for me it is one of the best cities in Spain and one of the best in the world. I have experience as a local guide, but I have a lot of passion for my work and I like to teach and explain events, for me it is the ideal job. That is why I think that being able to work in my own city in something that I like as a local guide is a privilege.

Excelente tour José. Te lleva por partes del retiro no tan conocidas y claro por los puntos clave también. Explica cada detalle.
Muy bien todo
Un viaje en el tiempo a través de los árboles del retiro, una fantástica experiencia muy recomendable. Además el guía un profesional, aún con la cancelación a última hora del resto de participantes por motivos climatológicos, nos hizo el tour a nosotros solos y además hizo un día estupendo. Todo genial, muchas gracias!
Hicimos un buen recorrido por el barrio de los Austrias de Madrid y Rubén nos guió dando muchas explicaciones de todo y explicando anécdotas, nos gustó mucho.
