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.

It was really interesting and fun. Selena knows so much about her region and culture and you can see she is really passionate about it. I learnt so much about gran canaria and got a tone of recommendation of places to see and to eat at. Thank you Selena, you are great at what you are doing! Emilia

Kurzfristig habe ich diese Tour gebucht und bereue es keineswegs:

Selene war pünktlich, höflich, informativ und man hat bemerkt, dass sie Gran Canaria liebt. Obwohl ich der einzige war, ist sie gekommen. Sehr professionell. Mucho Gracias für die vielen Anekdoten. 5/5

Response from Selene:
