What you'll do
This experience will take you off-the-beaten-path with me, your long, lost friend who loves to share her love of Madrid! WALK: You will get a local's keen perspective in discovering Malasaña. The experience will explain the historic significance of the neighborhood, and what makes it appealing today. SHOP: In these neighborhoods, you will help you discover the charming boutiques, and introduce you to local artisans at work in their studios who take a modern twist to traditional Spanish items. You can find unique gifts for friends/family - or even yourself - to remember your fabulous trip to Madrid. EAT: In between, we will stop to have have one beverage and one snack/tapa which is included with the tour. I will provide you options depending on your tastes/perferences. Choices include: from a hole-in-the-wall local churro & chocolate cafe, to a 100+ tavern that serves vermouth on tap and famous tortilla Española; OR tasting jamon (Spanish ham)in a local market, etc. Your choice. LAUGH: I love to look at life with a positive and humorous angle, so my colorful view will for sure lighten your day.
I'm a true city girl - My formative years were in Chicago, and I have also loved living in Tokyo for two years, and now I call Madrid "home." I began my journey into Madrid Experiences firstly as a volunteer at my children’s international school on the “Welcoming Committee”. It was there I was able to hone in what was important to new families as tourists and as new residents. My love of creative arts, keen eye for design, sense of humor, and love of meeting people created this world of sharing my discoveries with you- Madrid fascinates me, let me show you why.
We will stop for a beverage & snack during our outing. I will provide you a choices of Spanish inspired snacks- yuuum!
