My name is Rafael Sánchez, I consider myself an outgoing person, with a gift of word and people, committed to my land. In addition to knowing Tenerife very well, I have been fortunate to know many countries in Europe, such as Germany, Belgium, Italy, Holland ..... etc. And as an experience I can tell you that I have been working with tourism for 32 years: Leisure and entertainment.

Tour description

Join our free tour of La Laguna and discover a city of more than 500 years, a UNESCO world heritage site, which was founded when the Crown of Castile conquered the island in 1496. Located just a short tram ride from Santa Cruz is a really beautiful place: overflowing with mystery, romance, desire and intrigue. La Laguna was the capital of the island until the 19th century, reflecting exquisite architectural wonders in every corner. You will be delighted by its churches and palaces, which show a wide range of extravagant styles, ranging from Gothic, Plateresque, Mudejar, Baroque and Neoclassical. You will also learn about the rivalry between the nobility and the Church, and you will understand how the latter came to affect the design of the city. Stroll through the typical 17th-century Canarian courtyards, which you will not find anywhere else in the world, and suddenly you will find yourself suspended in time while the warm sea breeze invades you.

Rafael ist eine absolute Empfehlung. Er hat und pünktlich am angegebenen Platz empfangen. Es war eine sehr informative und kurzweilige Zeit in La Laguna mit ihm, Rafael macht seine Stadtpräsentation mit Herz, Humor und viel Wissen. Mit Rafael hatten wir wohl den besten Guide in La Laguna, sehr zu empfehlen. Vielen Dank Rafael, Ute und Winny

Rafael didn't show up for the tour. I messaged him personnally and in the group chat and never answered. This is really unprofessionnal. I lost time waiting at the meeting point for nothing. He could have told me the tour was cancelled. Rafael no se presento. Lo escirbe un par de veces y nunca me contesto. Perdi mucho tiempo esperando. Me parece muy unprofesional de no avisar que no habia un tour cuando reserve hace 9 días. Rafael ne s'est pas présenté et ne m'a pas avisé. Je lui ai écrit à plusieurs reprises et il ne m'a jamais répondu. J'ai perdu beaucoup de temps à attendre au lieu de rendez-vous. Pas professionnel du tout de sa part de ne pas aviser ni répondre aux messages.

Lieber Rafael, danke für die tolle Tour. Viele Orte hätten wir ohne dich nicht gesehen und die geschichtlichen Hindergründe hätten wir ohne dich nicht gekannt. Liebe Grüße von Thomas, Bianca und den Kids

Rafael showed us around La Laguna while explaining its history as one of Spain's first colonial towns. Knowledgeable, friendly and humourous, he showed us corners of Teneriffa's most beautiful city we wouldn't have found on our own. Great guide!
