Free Tour through El Capricho Park
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 through the mysterious park of El Capricho!
It is one of the most spectacular and mysterious parks that we have in Madrid, I will tell you the story of its mysteries, of the famous Duchess of Osuna, of the "whims" of the park ; among other curiosities.
We will start at the entrance to the garden; and then we will continue to see the eighteenth-century palace, the temple of Bacchus, the beekeeper . We will end up at the same meeting point.
It is a trip to two and a half centuries ago in which I hope you let yourself be carried away by the magic of the park.
For it to come out you need at least 5 people.
Pets are not allowed in the park, if it were up to me there would be no problem, but it is the regulation.
