Hi everyone!!! My name is Josué and I am an Official Tour Guide from the old mining town of Linares (Jaén). I have a full tourism formation and experience achieved during the last 11 years, working as an entertainer and a tour guide. I truly love to share with people experiences as well as to show around different places, spots and landmarks that belong to my beautiful region where all my roots are. A few years ago I moved to the wonderful village of Baeza where I prepared a brand new adventure within the Tourism World and... what's better than showing around the different jewels that your whole region own? If you want to have a real fulfilling experience and find out something more about the history of our beautiful Renaissance cities and all the richness they both hold, please, you're welcome to come by anytime and I'll be more than pleased to show you around. I'll be waiting for you all, see u soon!!! Best regards Josué

Una experiencia genial. Nos pareció muy entrenido y educativo. Josué, nuestro guía, se notaba que era conocedor y apasionado por la historia de la ciudad, lo que hizo que la visita fuera aún más interesante. Aprendimos mucho sobre la historia y la arquitectura de Baeza, y pudimos disfrutar de sus hermosas calles y monumentos. ¡Totalmente recomendado para sumergirse en la historia de esta encantadora ciudad! No podemos dejar pasar que el hecho de que el free tour aceptase mascotas fuese determinante para que lo escogiésemos frente a la competencia.
