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.

About the Tour

It is a tour in which you will visit the sublime, mythological places full of history in one of the most spectacular walks in this beautiful city, the Landscape of Light. In addition, this area has recently been listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

It is a tour that takes you through the main streets, buildings, hotels, museums, statues that daub this Landscape of Light, as well as its curiosities and anecdotes. In addition, the proximity that exists between all the components of this route is optimal, since everything is articulated around the landscaped areas of the Paseo del Prado. The tour begins in the Plaza de las Cortes and little by little we will spread out through the area to see the history of each corner, the Cibeles, Apolo, Neptune fountains... We will see the mysteries of the Bank of Spain... of the most important access and exit gates to the city in past centuries: La Puerta de Alcalá.

Hemos disfrutado de Madrid (gracias Rubén) y hemos podido conocer mejor unas de las zonas más frecuentadas de paso de Madrid y, a su vez, menos visitadas con detenimiento. Imprescindible para conocer bien la zona más artística de Madrid

Visita guiada espectacular! Conocía poco el Paseo del Prado y durante 2 horas he aprendido muchísimo entre fuentes mitológicas, hoteles clásicos, edificios sublimes... Es un guía de los mejores que he visto, va teniendo experiencia y se nota que le entusiasma su profesión.

Muchas gracias José! Ha sido un placer, me alegra saber que te haya gustado
