I am Maria Jose and I come from the south, from Jaén, land of olive trees and oil. I studied in Granada the upper cycle of Guide, Information and Tourist Assistance, and after doing the internship in La Alhambra, I knew that I wanted to dedicate myself to this. I love to travel, discover new cities, cultures, and customs, that's why I came to Salamanca to work. I fell in love with this World Heritage city and I would love to live a good season here. To be a tourist guide for me is to make the tourist feel at home, not only telling their history and culture but connecting with people along the walk. I try to connect and interact with the group, for this, I try not to release the information as if it were a class, but to make the group participate in a fun moment and among friends.
