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.

Llegamos tarde y aún así tuvimos una experiencia concreta, Carlos nos explicó lo que nos habíamos perdido mientras caminábamos a la siguiente parada. Fue muy atento.
