Hola! My Name is Vanessa. I'm Swiss and Spanish, and I grew up and studied in Madrid. I have also lived in several other European countries like Switzerland, Germany and France.
I'm passionate about history and art, communication, languages, and traveling. Although I have moved around a lot, my favorite city will always be Madrid and its secret places, sunny terraces, centenary shops and taverns, culture and most of all, it’s warm and happy lifestyle.
I had several experiences in the field of diplomatic institutions. I approached the tourism business, working for the Spanish Tourism institution in Germany and guiding journalists in Spain. Once I decided that the time of restless traveling was over, I thought that becoming a tour guide of Madrid was the best opportunity to share my passion for my hometown. Guiding is therefore now my full-time job. My certification was issued in 2016 by the Spanish Government.
I provide incredibly high quality, yet fun and informal, fully guided tours of Madrid and its surroundings (Toledo, El Escorial, Segovia), designed for small, independent and open-minded travelers.
I will be happy to introduce you to the real Madrid culture. You will have a personal tour guide of Madrid at your disposal to discover all the secrets of the city: history, curiosities, art and food. Through your private tour, you will get to know all the main historical buildings and the museums, as well as the streets, the squares and the markets. All will be shown to you adding amusing and curious anecdotes about Spanish history.
I guide different types of tours, and my services are always tailor-made; it's not the same thing guiding a family with children, a group of friends or a couple of honeymooners! With the Classic tour of Madrid, we will visit the top sites, such as the Plaza Mayor, the Puerta del Sol, and the Royal Palace. Moreover, I offer thematic tours, such as the Hipster & urban Malsaña, the rooftops tours or gastronomy experiences, one of my favorite ones, with a particular emphasis on food and wine.
