Hi! I'm Sergio. I've been a tour guide for 5 years, but I still feel like every tour is like my first one. I believe a walking tour is not only about dates or names of buildings and statues, but about discovering what these places tell us about the history and culture of a city, so as a guide this is what I like to study and share with tourists. My tours are a mixture of facts and anecdotes to make you learn and enjoy yourself at the same time.

Sergio was fantastic, and an amazing story teller. I had also gone on a walking tour with Carlos, and this tour complemented that tour really well. So even if you’ve already gone on a tour, I’d highly recommend doing another one with Sergio.

Today I was the only one on the tour and Sergio gave me a great impression of Centro. He is very calm, and knows a lot about the city. He could also answer all my addition questions. Really a great experience. Thank you!
