Hello, my name is Juan Carlos. I am an official tourism guide of the Canary Islands for more than 15 years. I have been born and lived in the city of La Laguna throughout my life, as you can imagine I know every inch and the idiosyncrasies of the city. I am also a hiking guide for the Canary Islands.

Tour excepcional. Juan Carlos lo explica todo fenomenal, con un toque cómico fantástico. Además hemos tenido la suerte de ver una casa auténtica, todo un lujo. San Cristóbal de la Laguna tiene un encanto especial y Juan Carlos lo transmite.
