Meet your local guide

Jorge

Jorge was born and raised in Málaga, Andalucía, Spain. He has worked in the tour guiding industry for the last 24 years. Moved to Madrid in 1990 and a few years after, almost by accident, started from the lowest level in this field. His passion is to transmit his feelings about this wonderful city to anyone, the same way he would like to be treated: like showing to a friend his city of adoption. Málaga is always in his heart, Madrid is in his soul forever.

Jorge has been guiding since Mar 1997


What to expect

Get ready for something special. We're travelling to Madrid with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you'll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and amazing guide.

The tour will last about 50 mins and will be live-streamed by your guide directly from Madrid. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!

While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your guide and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.


Why are they tip-supported?

We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to book and join, but you have the option to tip the guide during the tour.

Leaving a tip will help support the guides and allow us to offer tours in more places around the world. If you aren't able to leave a tip, then it would be great if you can share the tour with friends and family to spread the word.
