Hi! My name is Cristian and I am from Cuenca, Spain. 3 years ago I started working as a guide in my land and some time later, together with a friend, I was the co-founder of a tourism company. I obtained the title of official tourist guide almost 2 years ago and, since then, my purpose is to disseminate the history, the legends, and the coolest and most interesting things of Cuenca to anyone who wants to know it. Today, I am The Juggler of History, so I tell the history of Cuenca in a rigorous, entertaining, and professional way. I'm delighted to be your guide in Cuenca and that together we not only get to know it but together we discover it: its history, its culture, its heritage, it's past and it's present. Let yourself be guided by the minstrel of history. We sure had a great time!

Hola. Estuvimos ayer en la catedral de Cuenca contigo y te dimos 20€ por el tour pero olvidamos que tú pagaste la entrada a la catedral por lo que en realidad queríamos haberte dado 30€. Dame tu nunero de cuentaby te abonamos los 10€ de las entradas. María del Mar
