Hello everyone! I'm Rubén, official tour guide and guru of Madrid;), I'm 27 years old, I like to be called Rubens, I consider myself a "cat" (native of Madrid). I also collaborate with friends and family who help me occasionally with reservations. I have a degree in tourism and a history degree halfway through 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 starting in 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 prove. You must keep in mind that Madzguía has only been active for a short time and many times the minimum number of attendees necessary is not reached. Getting started, 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 little around Europe and that has helped me a little 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 tours. 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 am very passionate about my work and I like to teach and explain events, for me it is the ideal job. That's why I think that being able to work in my own city doing something I like as a local guide is a privilege.
