"Choose a job that you like and you will not have to work a day of your life" Confucius. Madrilenian by birth and traveler by vocation. My passion is traveling and this has also led me to live in Munich for a few years, which has allowed me to grow in many ways. It was in this city, where by chance I started working as a tour guide, a profession that allows me to combine two fields that I am passionate about, tourism and communication. I have always been linked to the world of tourism, which has allowed me to accumulate experience in different sectors and jobs. Ambitious in character, always looking for new projects to go a little further and constantly reinvent myself. This led me in 2019 to create my own tour company in Madrid and Munich called Todo Tours. With my feet on the ground and my eyes on a plane on my way to a new destination, I am always ready to undertake a new project, discover something new and learn as much as possible.

Altamente recomendable. Este Tour no deja de sorprenderte desde el principio al fin gracias, sobre todo, a la gran profesionalidad de Lara. Es sin duda la Lara Croft de Tours. Equipada con un arsenal de conocimientos y una sublime elocuencia, compartió con nosotros a lo largo del recorrido historias, datos y anécdotas que desde luego no nos dejaron indiferentes. Por otra parte destacar lo cuidadosa que fue la guía con el grupo y, el detalle que tuvo de conceder 5 minutos de cortesía, a las personas que llegaron al punto de encuentro después de la hora.
