Hola! My name is Ernesto. I was born and raised in this fantastic city, the capital of Spain. As an official local guide, I intend to show you the wonders of my beloved city. Vamos!

Since I was a seven-year-old boy, I have loved travelling and meeting other cultures. My uncle was a European Tour Guide in the age of no cell phones or internet. I was amazed looking at him guiding tours in Madrid and abroad. I wanted to do the same! I was patient enough to finish my Art Major at 22 years old, and then I became a Tour Guide, travelling to many countries around the world, learning so many things.

My extensive travelling experience has also made me appreciate the beauty of my own country, full of heritage and astonishing particularities. I decided to settle down (travelling abroad just for fun) and became a local certified guide after passing the taught official exams.

My goal is to make your visit to my country an unforgettable experience, that your memories about Spanish culture make you smile with pleasure and satisfaction once you are back home.

Most important: I adapt my visit to you and your interests. We can focus intensely on Spanish Art or History, a lighter speech but more scenic spots because you love taking pictures, or you might prefer more current controversial topics in Spain. You can be fond of great cultural sites, but later I am sure you also would love to try the local specialties, Spanish cuisine is superb!

Some people prefer to walk everywhere, others prefer a softer pace or hire private transportation. I make all efforts so my tours can satisfy each taste and exceed your expectations.
