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.
It is a tour that covers the areas of the Habsburgs and Bourbons with the idea of providing attendees with interesting legends and old stories, old streets , remote places and everything intermingled will make this visit a unique experience.
We will talk about the origin of the city, why the inhabitants of here are called "cats", illustrious characters, streets with the strangest names... You will enter the legendary Madrid
We will see sites like:
This tour includes civil liability insurance and additional explanation material.

Do you dare to enjoy the route?

Free tours do not have a set price, instead, each person gives the guru at the end of the tour the amount that he or she considers appropriate (these usually range from €10 to $50 depending on satisfaction with the tour).
