"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.

Tour description

 

How did a simple town in Castile became "the New Babylon", the capital of one of the greatest empires in history? 

For just over two hours we will visit the old town of Madrid, which reached its maximum splendor during the reign of the House of Austria in the 16th and 17th centuries. 

We will discover the origins of the city and its early life and development, and we will relive the miseries, glories and excesses of the wonderful Golden Age. 

The Puerta del Sol, the Plaza Mayor, the Plaza de la Villa or the Plaza de Oriente and the Royal Palace will mark some of the main points of our visit, in which we will try to understand many of the cultural and social phenomena that explain today's Madrid.

Palace intrigues, revolutions, romances, wars, decadence and splendor ... come and discover the Madrid de los Austrias with us. We promise you humor, rigor ... and a huge passion for history!

El tour fue demasiado largo, mucha información. El guía sabía muchísimo y era muy entusiasta. Nos faltó un poco de hilo conductor en las explicaciones.
