¡Hola !

My name is Marijn, your Licensed Guide in Madrid. Where I now live for about 10 years.

I am Dutch and went first to Spain for my studies. Later, after finishing the Rietveld Art Academy in Amsterdam, I went back. Madrid’s art, culture, climate and daily life made me decide to settle here.

Back in Madrid I became active in the tourism sector. I immediately loved going out and about with people, on foot and/or by bike, and sharing with them my love for the arts and history of the city. It was a surprising development for me, which I still enjoy every day.

I would like to take you on a journey of discovery in and around this fascinating historical metropolis to tell you about its past, present and future. 

Please don’t hesitate to reach out by email with curiosities or ideas you might have, like a visit of the Prado museum, the Royal Palace, an excursion to Toledo or a bike tour. I am happy to share my expertise and I’m sure that together your time in Madrid will be a great experience.

Are you a company? My services surely can be booked for the visit of your groups as well.
