Hello, I’m Alba.

I live in Alcobendas.
I work in all over the city.
I hang out in Lavapiés, La Latina, Barrio de las Letras.

About me

Hello!! My name is Alba and I'm a passionate traveler. I dedicate my free time, money and energy to travel as much as possible, and in many occasions it has happened to me that when I arrive to a new site I would have loved to meet some local. It's always very nice to receive advice, that someone take you to not so turistic places and tell you in first person how they live there. That's why I decided to become a local host! So I can help travelers eager to know a little more how we live in my city, Madrid. Every time I have returned from one of my trips I have been able to appreciate with more affection the magic of my city and the amount of things that can be done in it. For me, a perfect day in this city would consist of a visit to the Rastro, a street market that rides on Sundays in the district of Lavapiés. After, have tapas for lunch at a nearby bar, go to relax at El Retiro Park, look at shops in the area of ​​Gran Vía and Fuencarral and finally go to see the sunset at Debob Temple, a real Egyptian temple. I will be delighted to guide you through this city, in which you can make as many plans as visitors we receive every day. See you!

City tour with Silvia

My mother and I toured with Silvia on our first day in Madrid. She is very friendly, full of energy and provided us with her inside view of 3 neighborhoods (Salamanca, Malasaña and Centro). She took us off the touristy streets and it made the tour more personable. She also took us to one of her favorite lunch spots...La Pescaderia. It was delicious and very reasonable. If you’re looking for an overview of the city, I highly suggest requesting Silvia!

Wonderful company with Silvia

My son, his wife and I had a WONDERFUL evening with Silvia. We walked through her neighborhood, visited some tapas bars, went to a gallery, and stopped at a tea and spice shop. The highlight of our evening was sharing wine and dinner at one of her favorite restaurants. We could have talked for hours, but time was running very late and she had an early flight in the morning. A FANTASTIC TIME WITH SILVIA!

Uma Visão Geral de Madri

Minha experiência começou alguns dias antes da data marcada para o tour, sendo que Nicola, que foi responsável por me guiar no tour, me enviou emails me explicando em detalhes como iriamos nos encontrar, e uma sugestão de intinerário. Na hora marcada, começamos o passeio por Madri. Tive a oportunidade de conhecer vários detalhes históricos dos principais edifícios e ruas da cidade. Além disso, Nicola me levou a dois mercados para que eu pudesse experimentar um pouco da culinária local... o sanduiche ramón é imperdível, como também as croquetas!!! Para finalizar, uma passada por alguns dos museus da cidade, com destaque para o Museu do Prado. Bem, foi um dia agradabilíssimo, com o encontro de mais um amigo. se recomendo, claro, com certeza!
