"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.

El tour en general nos gustó, fue una experiencia positiva y nos tocó un grupo muy agradable. El guía fue muy simpático y era un orador excelente, simplemente nos hubiese gustado que hubiese una mayor conexión entre el propio recorrido y las mujeres aludidas. De todos modos, totalmente recomendable.
