Discover the hidden mysteries and treasures of Granada!
If you want to discover the legends and mysteries of Granada and see the city like you'll never have seen, you can count with me. At the same time I can surprise you telling you interesting stories related with the city, I can show you its multiple sides: appart from sightseeing and nightlife, you'll be so impressed with its traditional tapas and flamenco. But don't think you'll be another tourist more here: I propose to show you interesting and unknown places appart from the Alhambra and guide you to other places of the city where you'll feel like another inhabitant of this city.

I'm a person who loves to learn continuously. I like to guide but to learn from tourists at the same time. There are so many reasons that move me to do this, but the main is only one: you. I don't want to make the classical tour without listening tourists, because probably you have to say so much here. You'll see and experience things that can connect with you, and I want to speak with you and listen you. In other words, I want to offer you what this city has (and hasn't) in common with you: its coincidences and differences.
