"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.

Un tour muy interesante, lo recomiendo mucho si te interesa este tema. He conocido a figuras de las que no había oído hablar nunca, o tenía una información muy superficial de ellas. A la guía, Noelia, se le notaba la pasión que tenía por la literatura y estos personajes tan curiosos. Muy buen tour. Sin duda echaré un ojo a alguna antología de Gloria Fuertes.

Un tour súper interesante y que no te deja indiferente. Siendo mujer te hace aún más consciente de lo que nuestras antecesoras se han esforzado en conseguir lo que las mujeres del siglo XXI tenemos, y lo que aún queda por lograr. Rafa cuenta nuestra historia de manera objetiva y amena. Muy interesante su recorrido y sus menciones. Tengo una lista de notas y datos curiosos a estudiar. La recomiendo 100%
