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!

Jorge was a good locally based guide. As he had a a history degree it showed in his depth of local knowledge plus in relation to other countries in the same periods of history. We enjoyed our tour

Jorge, the tour guide, didn’t show up and didn’t message any of the people waiting either. A small group waited 20 mins and looked all around the area for him but gave up after it became apparent he wasn’t going to show. According to other walking tour sites, this has happens regularly. He messages to say to meet at the statue (where all the walking tours meet) but then makes the excuse he was waiting at an address opposite it (he wasn’t). We looked all around. When messaged he claimed he had been waiting there for us keen to do the tour. Strange that no one booked on this tour could find him! And he didn’t try to contact any of the people waiting either. I really don’t understand how anyone thinks it okay to have visitors to a city waste their time like this. Completely selfish and unprofessional behaviour! If a tour guide doesn’t want to do a tour (for lack of numbers?) they really should at least let people know. Karma will catch up with Jorge someday.
