Hello! I'm Yube I must say about me, that I love being a tour guide, it has been an encounter with that something that my life lacked, because after so long I discovered what this work completes my life; is that it has all the ingredients that I love to do, meet people from different places in the world, teach about my country, see those faces of tourists excited about our landscapes and our culture. For me, it is my ideal job because it makes me happy is reflected and spread.

About the tour

Walking in the past, it is a city tour focused on knowing a little about the history of the oldest city in Colombia: "SANTA MARTA"; which developed between Sierra Nevada and the sea, told through its old buildings, such as:

1) The Tayrona Gold Museum (Customs House), which compiles much of indigenous history and shows us the cultural legacy of this region.

2) We will also know the ancient and beautiful cathedral of Santa Marta, where the remains of the founder of this city Rodrigo de Bastidas rest.

3) The old Seminary San Juan Nepomuceno today Museum of Art; and other houses of illustrious characters from the colonial era.

4) We will take a walk through the "mail alley" (callejón del correo) and the "wedding couple park" (parque de los novios), where we will appreciate the people and their culture, the best restaurants, clothing stores, handicrafts and other places of recreation.

We want the traveler to fall in love with this city as we have fallen in love with it through its history and its art. The most important thing is that you feel surrounded by friends and enjoy what I have prepared for you.

I can also help you with all kinds of information about the most convenient places to visit and know, where to eat delicious, try an ice cream or enjoy the best coffee; in addition to recommending other routes and unforgettable places in the city of Santa Marta.

"You don't miss my guruwalk, you won't regret it."

My husband and I had a great time on this tour. Yube was very informative and so sweet. She was very passionate about her city and showed us all of the town including the Gold Museum. It was hours long and well worth it. We were on a cruise and I am a part of cruise critic so I posted this walking tour on cruise critic to get others to join us so we ended up with a full tour of 20 people. She brought along her husband and daughter to help her out. She did a great job and I would recommend to others to take this tour!

Great tour. We did ours on Valentine’s Day and she brought us flowers before hand. During the tour she talked about the history of Santa Marta and she did this all in English, which was perfect for us. All in all great tour.

Yubelis was the best. This was our first Guru Walk ever. We had no idea what to expect other than what we had heard about it from fellow travelers. She is extremely knowledgeable and her command of the English language is fantastic. I would highly recommend her to anyone visiting Santa Marta, Colombia.
