Hello everyone! I am Selene and I am an official Canary Islands tourist guide. Life took me by chance to this profession and now I cannot imagine without it. I am passionate about history and languages. With me you will get to know the Vegueta neighborhood from a local and authentic point of view, since I have lived here all my life. In addition, we will take a trip back in time from the 15th century to the present day, where we will not only tell the history of the city, but also anecdotes and curiosities. I will also recommend local places to shop, drink coffee or eat. During this tour I will not only be your guide, but also your friend, so you can take the opportunity to ask me anything you need for your vacation on the island.

El Tour con Selene fue excelente. No sólo por los conocimientos que tiene y su simpatía, sino porque cuenta con la acreditación legal y está dada de alta como autónomo. Gracias mil Selene!!!!

Sélene es un guía excepcional. Hemos disfrutado de su compañía en dos rutas: Pellagofio y El Confital. En ambos casos hemos aprovechado de lo lindo sus explicaciones y su compañía. En sus palabras se nota su pasión y respeto por el patrimonio. Ofrece datos prácticos: interesantes tiendas, restaurantes, rincones desconocidos...

Indudablemente merece la pena conocer Las Palmas de su mano. Un absoluto 10.
