Hi there! Mi name is Jorge. I am 100% maño. That means I was raised and born here. I always liked History and Art. Consequently, I studied the History Degree between 2012 and 2016 at the University of Zaragoza. As a tour guide I try to share my passion with the adventurers who want to discover the capital of the Ebro. Furthermore I try to reveal the secrets spots that are hidden in the most remote corners of the city. Don't think twice and book a tour with me!

El gurú es muy majo y hacía muchos chistes que hacía que las dos horas fueran amenas. Sin embargo, cuando llegó parecía que estaba de resaca y no había dormido nada, incluso hablaba con los ojos cerrados, según avanzó la mañana se fue animando un poco más

Jorge was a great guide. He was very detailed and entertaining while explaining the history of Zaragoza through all the centuries and he painted a very vivid picture of the city's evolution. While walking through the city, he pointed out a lot of interesting places in the city and added a lot of color and detail to the entire place. Would 100/10 recommend to take this tour. 💜
