"Working as a Tour Guide is one of the most rewarding jobs in the world, because it consists in SHARING. Sharing experiences and knowledge with people from different parts of the world, showing them the legacy left by the different civilizations in Iberia, recommending the best sunsets or the most popular tapa of that city. For me, it is a pleasure to welcome you to my country. I am ready to share with you my knowledge. Are you?"
