About the Guru

I have been an official guide of the Canary Islands since 2011, with a lot of interest about our history of the Canary Islands and specifically our island Gran Canaria. The ancient city known as Vegueta and Triana is my specialty so don't wait any longer, come and to see it.

About the Tour

At first glance, we can see that Triana is a commercial district, full of people, bars and shops, but have you ever wondered what its origins were? Was Triana once a middle-class neighborhood? How did this emblematic corner of Las Palmas de GC come to become what it is now? If, like me, you are curious and are asked all these questions, do not hesitate and come with me to discover this ancient fishing district! We will go back to the beginning of its history, the sixteenth century. We will walk its streets and we will know its evolution until we are in the present. We will meet in the San Telmo Park, near the tourist information point; We will stroll through Calle Mayor de Triana, with its mainly modernist buildings; We will see the tracks of one of the city trams (today there are no more); we will pass by the house of Don Benito Pérez Galdós; Plaza Cairasco ... Also, I will recommend bars, places to eat tapas, shops and free activities organized in the area. Don't hesitate and come and enjoy this wonderful neighborhood with the help of an official guide. We will have a great time!

Estuvimos con Miguel (Mari Teresa tuvo un imprevisto), pero con Miguel fue una fuente de información y recorrimos sitios muy bonitos y nos recomendó sitios para comer típicos canarios. Esperemos volver y seguir conociendo la cultura canaria y volver a disfrutar de Las Palmas de Gran Canarias. Saludos de Ángel, Agustín, Conchi y Irene.

Response from María Teresa
Muchas gracias por sus palabras, Ángel. Se las haré llegar a Miguel. ¡Un saludo a todos!

Muchas gracias María Teresa!!! Por el esfuerzo que hiciste, sin obligación, para que pudiésemos hacer el tour. Nos encanto, por la información que nos diste, los sitios que vimos, las explicaciones a todas nuestras preguntas, y como nos supiste poner en contexto la parte antigua y moderna de Las Palmas. Gracias otra vez!!!

Response from María Teresa
Muchas gracias a usted por su opinión, Juan. Fue un placer contestar a todas las preguntas que me hicieron. Como les dije al principio, prefiero que me pregunten, a que se queden con la duda. ¡Un saludo para todos!

Maria gave us a really interesting tour and answered all our questions about the history and also where to find shopping , restaurants , how to get around the island etc. Thanks for everything !
